Our cotton Model Farm in Belem, Brazil

Cotton still is the basis of about 21% of our clothes. It is known to be the world’s most important non-food crop. Unfortunately, it is also known for some less uplifting characteristics: Its production – held in monocultures – is frequently linked to severe land degradation, water exploitation, and the excessive use of agrochemicals. reNature is working on the transition of cotton farming into diverse, productive agroforestry systems. Those help to retain water, support plant and animal life, and regenerative land and soil ensuring long-term productivity.
