The work of Primark’s Environmental Sustainability team covers many things; how raw materials such as cotton are sourced, the environmental impact of manufacturing processes in factories, the efficiency of Primark stores and our commitment to recycle wherever possible.
Whether you’re looking for autumn winter wardrobe must-haves or one or two statement trending pieces to refresh your go-to looks, you can do so sustainably with our range of affordable pieces made using recycled and sustainable materials. We’ve got cold weather appropriate long sleeved bodies, printed shirts and classic go-with-anything skinny jeans made using sustainable cotton.
Organic Cotton Initative
Our sustainable cotton programme which launched in 2013 will train more than 160,000 farmers in more environmentally friendly farming practices by 2022. We are able to trace the source of our sustainable cotton at every stage of the process, right down to the community it was grown in. And we know our programme works. The farmers are using less water, less chemical fertiliser, and less chemical pesticide. It is also greatly improving the livelihoods of the cotton farmers. #PrimarkCares #SustainableCotton
