Unfortunately, not all pieces from COS are sustainable. But the company is working to become better. COS already source 100% sustainable cotton, either organic, recycled, or sourced through the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).


Check my article on the case for organic cotton to learn more about the importance of eco-friendly cotton compared to conventional cotton.


Sustainability is one of the biggest challenges for the fashion industry today. One of COS's central goals is to reach 100% recycled, repurposed, or more sustainably sourced materials by 2030.

 




“We’re continuously pushing boundaries here at COS. From innovating new materials to our repurposed projects where we turn production waste into new garments for our customers to enjoy.”

 - Nopor Stuart, COS's Global Head of Sustainability


COS Active is modern, stylish, minimalist, and going in the right direction for sustainability. It includes sports bras, leggings, swimsuits, hoodies, parkas, jackets, shorts, and accessories.
