Cotton Australia’s Brooke Summers joined a panel alongside iconic Australian brand Country Road at a fashion sustainability summit in Sydney earlier in the year.
Attended by over 250 brands, retailers and not-for-profit groups, Brooke answered a series of questions about Australian cotton’s sustainability credentials, how to source Aussie cotton, BCI, traceability and our investments in cotton R&D.
“This was a great opportunity to reinforce the achievements of our industry in terms of sustainability impact, as well as showcase some of the innovation and technology being used on our farms,” Cotton Australia Supply Chain Consultant, Brooke Summers said.
“Sitting alongside the team at Country Road, an Australian cotton partner, was fantastic as it showed the deep relationship we’ve developed over many years. The team also revealed that they’ll be stocking a large range of Australian cotton jersey later this year which is very exciting,” she said.
