Fibershed
Storing carbon in the soil is one of the goals.

You've heard of watersheds and viewsheds, now welcome to the concept of Fibershed.  That is the name of a Sonoma County-based organization that focuses on the fashion industry as a way to improve the planet. 

Fiber can be grown for clothing with an eye to storing carbon in the soil, greatly reducing the footprint of the fashion industry. 

Rebecca Burgess is the Executive Director of Fibershed.  She also chairs the board of the Carbon Cycle Institute; she explains the goals and actions.
