Lord Peter Melchett has challenged the textiles industry at the Sustainable Textiles Conference in Hong Kong , asking ‘Have you cottoned on yet?’
The New Organic Cotton Initiative will set the record straight – communicating to both brands and consumers how organic production and processing offers the highest standards and the most reliable, trustworthy system for advocates of sustainability.

The joint campaign of Soil Assciation and GOTS is detailed in a briefing paper - released today, which spells out five unique benefits organic production offers:

  1. Give control to farmers, not GM companies
    Organic farmers don't have their choices controlled by GM companies
  2. Eliminate hazardous synthetic pesticides
    Organic cotton doesn’t use dangerous pesticides, protecting farmers’ lives and the environment
  3. Help farmers feed their families
    Organic cotton enables farmers to grow other crops for food and income
  4. Save precious water
    Organic cotton uses less water, preserving a scarce and precious resource for the future
  5. Combat climate change
    Organic cotton farming uses less energy and healthy organic soils store more CO2
