Climate positive cotton produced with ecology at the forefront, data driven improvement practices and traced from grower to garment.
Producing cotton based on regenerative agricultural practices represents a change in attitude towards prioritizing long-term environmental well-being and the health of our soils. Regenerative cotton sequesters more carbon than it emits through the growth life cycle.
Through less disturbance of the soil, minimal tillage, maintaining living roots in soil, continuously covering bare soil, integrating livestock where feasible, reduced inputs and amendments, the regenerative agricultural practices lead to ongoing improved environmental effects, good soil and plant health and a maximization of diversity with an emphasis on crops, soil microbes and pollinators.
First results show that the yield is likely to increase, and the fibre strength and properties are at least as good as GOTS cotton.
Creating diversity on the fields by adding other plant types and animals – moving away from the traditional mono crop concept – will further enhance benefits.
Healthy plant life draws carbon from the atmosphere, storing it in leaves and branches and sinking it into the soil through the plant roots. This increases essential nutrients, enhancing the microbiome and soil structure. The plants’ capacity to absorb increases, and carbon is effectively captured and stored under the soil.
It is good to use organic materials. This resolves part of the problems we have created, mostly in relation to chemicals and improved social conditions. However, a lot is left unsolved, and we need to go much further and take more responsibility.
Through regenerative principles applied in fibre production, in management of businesses, in stakeholder management, in our relationship to nature and through the Inner Development Goals and the SDGs, we can approach our problems and truly take responsibility in a systemic and holistic way.
As per March 2023, Win-Win Textiles is able to offer product development and production of garments made of circular knits and with regenerative cotton. The fibre is imported into Portugal and processes from yarn spinning to the final garment all take place in Portugal and partly in facilities using renewable energy. Fully traceable.
We hope you would like to be part of this attempt to improve our soil, our biodiversity and our climate.
