Textile Exchange is delighted to announce the release of our 2012 Organic Cotton Farm & Fiber Report. This year’s report once again builds upon the themes from our previous Farm & Fiber and Market Reports and provides you with unique data, trends and analysis of organic cotton production. As with last year’s report, we have included annual snapshots of other cotton sustainability initiatives, including the Better Cotton Initiative, Fairtrade, and Cotton made in Africa, in order to give you the most comprehensive perspective on cotton agriculture.

For your reading pleasure, the report is broken out into 6 sections:

part 1: the report summary
part 2: cotton – towards a greener landscape
part 3: organic cotton – regional insights
part 4: a closer look at Fairtrade
part 5: cotton sustainability initiatives
part 6: organizations advancing cotton sustainability

We are offering this Report free of charge to you and your organization because we feel that this information is highly useful and should be widely dispersed. Please take advantage of this opportunity!

This guide focuses specifically on fiber impacts, highlighting the positive and negative attributes associated with Hemp, Linen, Organic Cotton, Recycled Cotton, Recycled Polyester, and TENCEL™ from Lenzing; providing you with the knowledge to make informed fiber decisions in your company and ultimately for your customers. Regardless of your fiber choice, you can find valuable information in this guide to support your company's specific focus area and path to sustainability.

2011 Organic Cotton Market Report from Textile Exchange

The 2011 Organic Cotton Market Report is here and available for free download. Get ready to read about the highs and lows of 2011 – truly a year of contradictions. This Report continues vital conversations that were underscored at the Organic Cotton Roundtable during our most recent Sustainable Textiles Conference in Hong Kong.

For the first time, we are offering this report free of charge. Our decision to offer it at no cost is driven by the importance of the findings. We all need open access to this updated and vetted information so that we can implement systemic changes. We invite you to read the report, share it with anyone and everyone who has a hand in building a more sustainable textile industry and then talk with us – it’s only through two-way conversation that we’ll discover the tipping point for the changes we need to see.
