All cotton used to make MUJI apparel is organic cotton.
To restore the relationship between humans and nature, we started using organic cotton in 1999, and all the cotton used in our apparel is now organic as of 2018.
However, organic cotton production currently makes up less than one percent of the global cotton market.
Conventional cotton production requires large amounts of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides.
As organic cotton is grown without pesticides and chemical fertilizers, the yield per hectare is around 70% of the yield of conventional cotton, so it cannot be produced in large quantities as efficiently.
We want to spread the practice of growing organic cotton which benefits both the environment and its producers.
So, we are also involved in cotton cultivation instead of just using them.
For every T-shirt that we sell, we will provide producers in India with 2 organic cotton seeds for free.
To spread the practice of producing environmentally sustainable organic cotton, we support farmers together with our customers through this initiative.
