MATERIALS, CARE AND ORIGIN
Care for fiber: 100% ecologically grown cotton.
We use the Join Life label on clothing that is produced using technology and raw materials that help us to reduce the environmental impact of our products.
We work with monitoring programmes to ensure compliance with safety, health and quality standards for our products.
The Green to Wear 2.0 standard aims to minimise the environmental impact of textile manufacturing. To that end, we have developed Inditex’s The List programme, which helps guarantee both that production processes are clean and that our garments are safe and healthy.
ECOLOGICALLY GROWN COTTON
Ecologically grown cotton is grown using natural fertilisers and pesticides.
Using these natural farming methods is more respectful of water and local biodiversity, allowing farmers to grow cotton crops alongside other food crops such as oranges, tomatoes or turmeric.
Furthermore, plantations where ecologically grown cotton is grown avoid the use of genetically modified seeds, thus helping to preserve seed biodiversity and soil fertility.
We only use ecologically grown cotton certified by organisations which monitor the process from the raw material to the final product. At present, we work with:
Organic Content Standard (OCS)
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
