WE CAN MAKE CLOTHES CLEANER
One in every 40 hectares of cultivated land grows cotton, but takes one-sixth of the world’s insecticides – more than any other crop – and produces 220 million tons of carbon dioxide. The textile industry uses more water than any other industry except agriculture. And old processes contaminate our environment with unsafe chemicals.
New farming and processing methods, along with new sustainable fibers, are now available to reduce – and even reverse – harmful impacts. The US Group is proud to be a leader in expanding these options.
More than half of all clothing produced worldwide is cotton. It’s absorbent, durable and intrinsically soft, making it an excellent apparel fiber. And it can be a sustainable option.
The US Group sources organic cotton that is grown without harmful pesticides or genetically modified organisms. This creates a healthier environment for farmers and preserves the land.
Our organic cotton is also processed without using harmful chemicals, so these don’t contaminate our employees, the planet or the consumers of our organic textiles with anything allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic.
