For Immediate Release
July 24, 2000


Fiber Ethics Magazine -- a publication dedicated to helping retailers 
unravel and understand the explosion of "ethical fabrics" -- will be 
launched today in North America and around the world.

The print sister of the successful e-publication Fiber Ethics Online, 
Fiber Ethics Magazine will deliver quarterly industry analysis, 
product reviews and targetted advice to a wide variety of retailers 
buying products made from such materials as flax, hemp, organic 
wools, kenaf, organic cottons, and recycled synthetic fibers.

"For too long these industries have developed separately," says David 
Redwood, editor of Fiber Ethics Magazine. "Buyers who've tried to 
meet the customer demand out there for these socially-conscious 
fibers have expressed the need for a comprehensive information 
source. Fiber Ethics Magazine brings these different materials under 
one banner."

Publisher Randy Mugford, president of HPI Group, says, "The goal is 
to provide a platform for businesses, especially small- and mid-sized 
socially responsible ones, to get the message out that business and 
environmental and social responsibility can, and do, co-exist."

New technologies are literally blending these renewable materials 
together. Combined with the spending power of a socially-conscious 
consumer base estimated at over 45 million in the United States 
alone, there is clearly a motive for more and more manufacturers to 
adopt healthier, cleaner and sustainable fabrics.

Fiber Ethics Magazine sheds light on the latest opportunities and 
challenges the industry faces.

Most of all the magazine provides retailers with the latest in 
product development, styles and technical information.

Fiber Ethics Magazine is published in Nova Scotia, Canada by the 
privately-held HPI Group. For subscriptions call 1-800-330-9117. For
