It may have been released over a month ago but we thought we would delve a little deeper and look at some of the manufacturers that made this year's Harvard Business Review Top 100 Best-Performing CEOs. And we were surprised by what we found.
Everyone is aware of the term fast fashion, but not everyone knows what it is. Largely it has negative connotations, but it is actually not that bad. What is that bad, is fast fashion made from synthetic - plastic - material, and not for the reason you might think.

Apparel manufacturers such as Nike and Adidas plan to increase the output of speed factories in the US and Germany, and they make sure that the data generated in its Far East sites also help to further optimise future design and production processes, a report has shown.
