Cotton is a huge part of our everyday life. Whether we find it in our clothes or the sheets on our beds, we all use cotton in some way or another. So cotton from sustainable sources sounds like a great idea. But what does it mean actually?
Alexandra Cousteau, National Geographic Emerging Explorer, filmmaker and globally recognized advocate on water issues, travels the world to present a picture of the cotton industry, with a focus on its history and the modern-day challenges and innovations. She will discover the threats and the solutions facing our fashion industry.
Thousands of migrant children – often unaccompanied by an adult – have set off across the Mediterranean for Italy in 2015. All have come from lands of violence and social disruption. Most arrive traumatized, but alive. C&A together with C&A Foundation is providing support for these migrants through a unique collaboration with Save the Children. Chisom and Nalani are two children who have received much-needed assistance.
When you buy something made with cotton, do you ever wonder where it comes from? What goes into making that quality dress you try on? That shirt you imagine would be perfect to wear to work? The bathrobe you like, the underwear you need, the socks that would go so well with your shoes?
C&A is the world’s largest retailers of organic cotton apparel through our Bio Cotton range. Organic cotton delivers substantial economic and environmental benefits but represents less than 1% of the world’s total annual crop.
