Agriculture is at a tipping point with the very real potential to change chemically-intensive agriculture for good, or with some very serious consequences if the full costs of business are not considered and included. The biggest question for 2012 remains - If organic cotton provides a system for producing the most sustainable source of cotton on earth, then why is it under threat?
Join us online to hear first-hand the highs and lows of organic and for the first time – in partnership with colleagues from Fairtrade, BCI, and Cotton Made in Africa – a snapshot of other initiatives intent on cleaning up cotton. We’ll examine why conducting business as usual, especially with the earth’s agricultural systems, is not sustainable by any definition and what new models are required to thrive.
Coinciding with the launch of our 2011 Farm & Fiber Report, this webinar provides both a reality-check and a deeper examination of the multi-layered world of more sustainable cotton systems through the lens of our ‘sustainability continuum.’
