Know Thy Pants(November 21, 2008) Chances are your pants have probably been more places than you have. From cotton grown in India, zippers manufactured in China and apparel factories in the Dominican Republic, the apparel industry relies on a complex and sophisticated series of relations to get their clothes to a store near you - the global supply chain.

Michael Kobori, Vice President of Global Supply Chains at Levi's spoke with the Ceres Podcast about how Levi's is incorporating these issues into its sourcing decisions in order to create a more sustainable supply chain for its products.
