Currently, The FTC requires that all textile and apparel products sold in the U.S. be labeled with the country of origin. Since the supply chain of apparel products has many different touch points and often happens in many different countries (farming, washing, dyeing, spinning, weaving, cutting, sewing), the standard is vague and misleading to consumers. 

This petition is to create a new standard that would require apparel brands to label all goods sold in the U.S. with Sourced In, disclosing the country of origins of the entire supply chain. In this way if a product is labeled Sourced in the U.S., the American consumer can feel confident that a product is in fact entirely made domestically.

With this we ask to revolutionize the apparel industry’s standard for supply chain transparency. This petition is a call for brands to expose every level of their product supply chain, making them responsible for the environmental, ethical, and economic factors for every step of production, from farm to finish factory. This transparency will provide consumers with an element of trust and confidence that has never been established before.

With the world consuming 400% percent more clothing than 20 years ago; with cancer, asthma and neurological problems associated with chemicals used in apparel manufacturing on the rise; with the textile industry being responsible for a full 30% of industrial air pollution in China, and with 20% of total industrial water pollution coming from the textile industry, the "Made In" tag on our clothing simply won't cut it anymore. 

Through this petition, we hope for a time when we can see a "Sourced In" tag on our clothing as well, which will tell consumers where and how the product was made, from farm to finish factory.

We ask the US government to create a “Sourced In” mandate for clothing sold in US.
