to promote measurable and ongoing improvements to social, environmental and economic issues in cotton-farming communities around the world.
 

In 2016, Cotton On Group became one of the first Australian retailers to join the Better Cotton Initiative. Through our membership with BCI, we are ensuring that even raw materials, in this case cotton, are coming from more sustainable sources.
