Join TriplePundit and C&A Foundation on Monday, March 21st at #CottonTalk to discuss the drive around the sustainable cotton industry, and why it is making a huge difference globally. Providing their thought leadership during the conversation, Richard Holland (Director, Market Transformation Initiative at WWF), Shona Quinn (Sustainability Leader at Eileen Fisher), and Anita Chester (Head of Sustainable Raw Materials at C&A Foundation) will weigh in and share their experiences.

Cotton is known as “the fabric of our lives,” and it’s true. Chances are you are wearing cotton fibers right now. This cash crop is indispensable to the apparel industry and the economies of entire countries. However, its environmental and social impact can be huge. Through this conversation, and our currently running editorial series, we’ll gain a deeper understanding of this critical crop, understand methods to reduce its footprint and learn how to define sustainable cotton now and in the future.

During #CottonTalk, we will address the following topics, and more:

  • Environmental impact of cotton farming and benefits of more sustainable cotton?
  • What are the challenges on the market with organic and more sustainable cotton?
  • How does buying clothes made from organic or more sustainable cotton make a difference?

Bring your questions for our guests, and they’ll answer as many as they can during the chat!
