Raw materials

/ COTTON STRATEGY

At JACK & JONES we love cotton. In fact 75% of our raw material is cotton.

100% of all cotton in JACK & JONES products will come from more sustainable sources by 2020.

Through collaboration with our supply chain partners to achieve this ambitious target, we are helping to improve the way cotton is grown globally.

Today Better Cotton is our primary source of sustainable cotton. In the year 2015/16 50% of our total cotton supply was sourced as Better Cotton.

And when you do, lower the temperature.

You probably want to keep your clothes for longer if it keeps its colour.
– Fill up the washing machine

Minimize the number of times your machine is running.
– Air dry

Avoid tumble drying and save energy.

Your worn out clothes have reuse and recycling value – don’t throw them away.
