Did you know that more than 10% of the cotton that we use is organically culitvated? By 2021, we aim to use 100% sustainable cotton, including organic cotton, recycled cotton and cotton from the Better Cotton Initiative!
We also focus on the use of recycled cotton from the post and pre-consumer waste. Post-consumer waste, e.g. is used clothing that comes from donations. Pre-consumer waste includes fabric residues from cutting during production. The objective is to keep both types of waste away from landfills.
Esprit is certified according to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). 2% of the wool used for our current collection is RWS certified already. Our aim is for 50% of our wool to be RWS certified by 2020.
