Better Cotton Initiative
Richard Haworth are proud members of the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), a not for profit organisation that aims to transform cotton production worldwide by developing Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity.
The BCI works with a range of organisations across the world and together we are all committed to improve cotton farming globally. The Better Cotton Initiative trains farmers to use water efficiently, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, reduce use of the most harmful chemicals and respect the rights and wellbeing of workers.
We are also committed to sourcing a minimum of 25% of our cotton as Better Cotton by 2023. By choosing cotton products from Richard Haworth, you’re supporting responsible cotton production through the BCI.
