Celebrating Sustainability on World Cotton Day

Cotton. The word calls to mind a fluffy fiber, perhaps in the form of the cotton balls you use in your skincare routine. Maybe it reminds you of your favorite pajamas, or the feel of crisp sheets on a breezy spring morning. Or it can even mean an eyelet dress, the one you’ve worn for years—the one that still makes you feel confident and elegant.

Cotton is the humble fiber that can mean so many things, and that’s why we have always called it “The Fabric of Our Lives.” And elsewhere in the world, cotton means all these things—and more.

October 7th is World Cotton Day, an industry-wide holiday that aims to celebrate what makes cotton special and the role it plays in our daily lives, whether we find it in our wardrobes, our cabinets, or our bedding.

Globally, the cotton industry is committed to several tenets that drive the whole industry forward.

  • We believe in providing a means of sustainable and decent employment throughout the world.
  • We believe in sustainability, and in keeping our oceans free from microplastic pollution.
  • We believe in responsible production that results in improved efficiency and in the elimination of waste.
  • And we believe in cotton’s sustainable future.

We also believe in the ineffable feeling that cotton gives us, and it’s this feeling—one of comfort and strength—that we’re also celebrating this World Cotton Day. On this day, we're spotlighting new tools and technology being used to pave the way for a sustainable future not only for cotton, but for the planet. Did you know these cotton facts?

The thread that runs through all these facts is the importance of cotton around the world. Celebrate World Cotton Day by wearing your favorite cotton garment.
