Sustainability is chic -- but can you put a price on it? As more and more apparel companies design and sell clothing with responsibly-sourced fabric, they reach a point where they must determine what customers are willing to pay for sustainability. A panel of representatives from the apparel industry discussed this issue and shine some light on the future of sustainable apparel.

Key Questions:

What companies are making the greatest inroads in responsible sourcing?
Are customers aware of their environmentally-friendly clothing options?
Is this even something customers consider at all?
