May 24, 2023 Performance Wear Fair Welcomes Footwear
Long the hub of cutting edge innovation and sustainability for performance textiles, Performance Days announces it will now invite the footwear market to this year’s fair.
Performance Days is known as the leading platform for functional textiles. This year, it also invites the footwear market, and seeks to retain the title of the leading sustainability platform: The Performance Forum, for example, will specifically ensure that the appropriate criteria to promote sustainability are met. This entails that all submitted materials must, among other criteria, guarantee at least 50 percent recycled content (GRS-certified – Global Recycled Standard), and meet GOTS-, CSS-, OCS-, RDS- or RWS- standards, or ensure bio-based treatments and finishes.
In addition, the fair will place great importance on other areas of sustainability. The fair’s Focus Topics have long been heavily oriented towards environmental social awareness, with renowned industry experts regularly providing information on exciting developments as part of the “sustain & innovate” conference.
“We believe that the sportswear industry in particular has an important role to play in preserving the planet and in protecting nature, for which we develop our products,” explains Lena Weimer, Senior Marketing Manager at Performance Days.
“Together we can bring about change.”
