IKEA and Cotton

IKEA | Oct 27, 2016

Cotton is an important raw material for IKEA, used in many products, from sofas to towels. However, when grown conventionally, cotton farming uses large amounts of chemicals and water, raising costs and making it harder for farmers to earn a living,

IKEA has committed to only using cotton from sustainable sources meaning that the farmers supplying cotton used in its products use less water, chemical fertilisers and pesticides, while increasing their profits.

Check out the video below to find out how IKEA works through their partners WWF and BCI to improve both social and environmental impacts in cotton-growing communities.
