Cotton for a better world
BCI is a voluntary, non-profit program that works with farmers worldwide to make cotton production better for people, the environment and communities where it is grown, and ensures a responsable use of cotton.
What is BCI cotton?
BCI cotton is made in collaboration with the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), a not-for-profit organisation stewarding the global Better Cotton standards, and bringing together cotton’s complex supply chain, from the farmers to the retailers.
The Better Cotton Standard System is a holistic approach to sustainable cotton production covering all three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social and economic.
It reduces the impact of non-natural chemical products used and water consumption.
It promotes the sustainability of local agricultural communities, improving their living conditions and favouring biodiversity.
What are the benefits of cotton BCI fabrics?
BCI connects people and organisations from across the cotton sector, from field to store, to promote measurable and continuing improvements for the environment, farming communities and the economies of cotton-producing areas.
Responsible production process
BCI cotton promotes better working conditions for farmers and farm workers concerning health and safety, freedom of association, child labour, forced labour and non-discrimination.
BCI cotton is traceable to farm/field level.
