Cotton: Have You Picked Yours Carefully?

Over two thirds of the world’s cotton is grown in developing countries and the former Soviet Union. Valued at over $32 billion every year, global cotton production should be improving lives. But this "white gold" too often brings misery.

Cotton Campaign Splash Block Left


1. To raise policy, consumer and corporate awareness of the environmental and social issues linked to conventional cotton production, including toxic pesticides, the misuse of water, forced and child labour.

2. To promote organic, fairly-traded and carbon neutral cotton as a sustainable, ethical and affordable alternative.

3. To ensure clear cotton supply chains and for products to be clearly labelled to show where the cotton originated.  

4. For Uzbekistan to end forced child and adult labour and unsustainable water use in cotton production.

EJF is pleased to announce the opening of another great pop-up shop in the heart of London where we will be showcasing our new Save the Sea designer t-shirt collection.
