2. Google Is Tracking Raw Sustainable Materials

WWF Sweden and Google have teamed up to better track raw materials and assess their sustainability.

With so many moving pieces in the fashion supply chain, it's hard to truly know where the materials are being sourced from so this is a big step in the right direction.
