COTTON FROM MORE SUSTAINABLE SOURCES
Of the total cotton we use in IKEA products, 20% is recycled cotton. The remaining 80% comes from these sources:
Better Cotton: 72%
Towards Better cotton*: 23%
Other more sustainable cotton, such as the E3 program in the US: 5%
*Towards Better cotton is a standard developed by IKEA following the same principles and criteria as Better Cotton, on its way to become Better Cotton.

Since Sep 1, 2015, all the cotton we use for IKEA products comes from more sustainable sources. This means that the cotton is grown with less water, chemical fertiliser and pesticide, while increasing profit margins for farmers.
