    Cotton fibers 76% biodegradable in water after 250 days: study (2019/05/16)

    Many Taiwanese textile companies opt for U.S. cotton to produce high-quality clothing. Research shows that U.S. cotton is not only a leader in comfort, but also environmental sustainability. A study has found that cotton has superior biodegradability compared to other fibers, degrading by 76% when immersed in wastewater.

    When buying clothing, Taiwanese consumers value comfort, although environmental friendliness and sustainability are also gaining traction among shoppers. A study shows that cotton is the most common material used in the textile industry.

    Well cotton is just a great fiber, right? Because it's natural. It grows in many climates. It's actually a drought-resistant crop, which many people don't know, meaning it actually doesn't take much water to grow cotton.

    Cotton also has the lowest environmental impact. After 250 days, it is 76% biodegradable in wastewater - far more than other fibers.

    The U.S. is the only country in the world with quantifiable environmental goals for cotton production for 2025. And we've just introduced the U.S Cotton Trust Protocol as a vehicle for our growers to demonstrate conclusively that they are following sustainable farming practices.

    The U.S. Cotton Council International says cotton from the U.S. accounted for 77% of Taiwan's cotton imports last year. The cotton industry is continuing to improve its farming practices, so that consumers can feel good about the environmental impact of their clothing.
