Cotton & Our Environment

Sustainability continues to be a hot topic in the apparel and textile industry. As a natural fiber, the success of cotton is directly linked to the land and its health. Being good stewards of the environment requires continuous attention to reducing impact throughout every link in cotton’s long supply chain—from the seeds from which cotton is grown, to the processing and manufacturing practices of finished cotton goods. CottonWorks™ provides the sustainability facts, news and industry expertise you need to know.

The webinar series brings together experts from across the industry to address your questions. A recent webinar, Stop the Leak: Addressing Plastic Leakage in Your Supply Chain educates viewers about an initiative designed to identify, measure, and develop scalable solutions to stop plastic leakage and pollution in the supply chain. The latest webinar, Cotton & Water: Demystifying Agricultural Water Management, examines science-based data surrounding cotton’s water use and discusses ongoing research that continues to improve cotton’s water productivity.

COVID-19 Impact: Cotton Crop, Economics, & Shopping

Cotton Incorporated compiles a comprehensive monthly analysis of the latest global events, including COVID-19, affecting the world cotton supply and demand situation and world cotton prices.

Review this month’s economic letter.

For nearly all industries, it has been a year full of uncertainty. This certainly has been true for U.S. cotton growers. Typically, ahead of planting, growers will study prices for different crops and choose to devote more of their acreage to the one that offers them the best return. This year has been exceptional for its volatility, and the challenge of guessing which crop may represent the best option proves difficult.

Read about trade, COVID-19, & the planting season.

To better understand the effects of the pandemic on consumer habits and attitudes, Cotton Incorporated asked consumers in the U.S., China and other countries around the world  how they may change their behaviors.  These valuable insights can help the textile industry better meet the needs of consumers during this time.
