Transitional Cotton Challenge

The TCC is an initiative that challenges and encourages companies to move towards incorporating 5% organic cotton into their supply by 2020. Research has shown that organically grown cotton is the best process for securing long-term supply of the fiber by sustaining the health of soil and ecosystems, as well as improving the livelihoods of farmers and communities.

A blended approach will address cost and availability constraints, avoids risk related to certifying a garment, minimizes disruption to your existing supply chain, stabilizes fair prices, and encourages farmers to convert to organic production systems.
