Setting a New Standard in Sustainable Cotton

Sustainability is priority to consumers, brands, retailers, and textile manufacturers

Our goal is to confirm and increase awareness of the fact that U.S. cotton producers are farming responsibly and harnessing the latest industry innovations to offer premium value.
Cotton’s sustainability journey is a series of steps designed to meet the needs of the present customers without compromising the ability of future farming generations to meet their own needs. The U.S. cotton industry continues to use innovative technologies, adopt best management practices, and fund research projects that will help develop new farming practices.
