Regenerative Organic Certification Pilot Cotton

We’re testing Regenerative Organic practices with cotton farmers in India.

Why

We have drastically changed our climate in just over a century. Growing food and fiber with industrial techniques and harmful chemicals is one of the main causes of climate change, contributing up to one-quarter of annual emissions. If we switch from fossil fuel–intensive farming to organic, no- and low-till practices that build healthy soil and draw carbon back into the ground, we could turn our agricultural system from problem to solution.

This is a test

We’ve piloted our first crop of cotton in India on more than 150 farms working toward the highest organic standard, Regenerative Organic.

Where We Are

We’ve piloted our first crop of cotton in India on more than 150 farms working toward the highest organic standard, Regenerative Organic. This farming method aims to rehabilitate soil, respect animal welfare and improve the lives of farmers.

What's Next

We hope to launch more Regenerative Organic Certified apparel and food as our pilot program progresses in the next few years. We believe it’s possible to grow food and fiber in harmony, to make our land more fertile and our future brighter. It’s not just about doing less harm, but also doing some good.
