Cotton On

Sustainable Attributes / Sustainable Fabrics Used:

Our best-selling Mother Puffers are made with 100% recycled polyester in the shell, lining and fill. Converting to recycled materials reduces our reliance on conventional synthetic fibers. Now we’re working on doing even more, by exploring recycled alternatives for the trims.

Our recycled ranges make up part of our bigger circularity goal. We’re collaborating with suppliers to source recycled fibers that repurpose plastic waste, diverting it from our oceans and landfills. This year, we’ve been working with REPREVE©, the world’s leading brand in recycled performance fiber made from recycled bottles. Our sights are set on launching a new recycled swim range in the USA in early 2023.

We partnered with RESET Carbon, a specialist supply chain and environmental consultancy, to measure how we’re reducing our impact in a meaningful way. Compared to the industry average, our denim uses 21% less water, 25% less energy and 19% less carbon.

Africa Cotton Program: What began as a pilot program now spans across Kenya and Mozambique, with the mission to train farmers in sustainable farming practices and open pathways to explore agriculture as a meaningful career.
