Our commitment to sourcing cotton from more sustainable origins
Although it's a natural produce, cotton farming has an environmental and social impact.
These impacts are mainly linked to the huge amounts of water required to grow cotton. They are also linked to the use of pesticides, which impact biodiversity, contaminate the soils, and also affect the people that grow and harvest it.
To play a part in reducing these impacts, we are committed to getting our supplies through three more sustainable sources:organically grown cotton, BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) cotton, and recycled cotton. Cotton from sustainable sources today represents 95% of the cotton used at DECATHLON.
