Themenseite Baumwolle

Die Baumwolle ist eine der ältesten Kulturpflanzen auf der Welt. Sie ist:

  • Natürlich
  • Biologisch
  • Abbaubar
  • Nachwachsend

In der Saison 2015/16 betrug die weltweite Produktion geschätzt 23 Millionen Tonnen. Baumwolle ist ein Naturprodukt, das seit Jahrtausenden von uns „domestiziert“ wird. Von ihr leben 250 Millionen Menschen, vornehmlich in Entwicklungsländern.

Immer wieder wird Baumwolle jedoch insbesondere von NGO‘s wegen ihrer Anbau- und Verarbeitungsmethoden als nicht nachhaltiges Produkt kritisiert. Die Kritik basiert häufig leider auf faktisch unhaltbaren Informationen, die nicht dem aktuellen Entwicklungsstand entsprechen. Das schadet der Baumwolle in hohem Maße.

textile network möchte aufklären und informiert auf dieser Themenseite kontinuierlich über alles Wissenswerte zum Thema Baumwolle.
