Textufil and COTTON USA: The Path of Environmental Protection

With consumers demanding tangible progress toward sustainability, the textile industry is stepping up to deliver. 
COTTON USA understands consumers’ concerns about sustainability and has been working to respond appropriately to harmonize the work of U.S. cotton farmers with the environmentally-friendly demands of the market.
The result is the US Cotton Trust Protocol, a rigorous set of standards the aim of which is to guarantee an environmentally friendly industry. Cotton-farming families, who in many cases have been involved in producing cotton for several generations, are committed to sustainability. 
In order to grow cotton sustainably, they are turning to technology as a powerful ally. GPS, drones for mapping land and computerized irrigation systems, as well as high-tech weather stations, are all working to facilitate precision agriculture. This ensures the use of water and products to protect the cotton are applied punctually in the place where they are needed. 
The results include an 82% efficiency improvement in the use of water in the last 35 years, as well as 38% less energy and 30% less greenhouse gas emissions. Cotton farms have the ability to remove more of these gases than they produce, leading to a neutral carbon footprint. 
The deep commitment of American cotton producers has been translated into quality and confidence in the produce they offer to the textile industry. The guarantees provided by the US Cotton Trust Protocol ensure that each bale can be traced: where it comes from, the conditions under which it was grown, etc.
Only American cotton farmers can offer this robust commitment to sustainability and traceability. Their position as world leaders of sustainable cotton is undisputed. American cotton is the cotton the world trusts.
COTTON USA’s licensee companies prefer American cotton for its sustainability benefits and quality.
