It was a really great experience to visit the Future Fabrics Expo,. It is such an opportunity for designers and brands to source their materials from more sustainable mills. The platform makes it easy to contact and discover new mills, such as emerging innovative materials.” – Ana Pasalic from Stella McCartney Ltd

You no longer need to wait until the annual Future Fabrics Expo to discover new sustainable fabrics and mills. 
The first Future Fabrics Virtual Expo was set up by The Sustainable Angle to extend the lifespan of the Expo, so those interested from abroad or cannot visit our showcases physically can have access to the sustainable innovative fabrics and materials
Year Round.
Already 900+ fabrics are searchable by categories from fibre type and price, to certification and origin, etc. Not only a valuable tool for designers and buyers new to the area of sustainable textiles and materials, but also for those with established strategies.

Reduce The Impact (some good advice about sustainable textiles)

Go to their catalog page and click on one of these: Greenest, Greener, Green, Not Green. Click on a product and you will find all details, including the brand.

Did they give them all away?

OR are the left-over bags sitting in a warehouse taking up space.  They are now a form of Waste. “Stuff We All Get” =  SWAG  The Freebies that companies give away at conferences, political campaigns or product introductions.  
SWAG = Unusable Branded Merchandise. A $30 Million industry, in the USA alone.
