Organic Cotton Up In 2009

(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). Driven by consumer interest and expansion of programs by brands and retailers, organic cotton products were increasingly popular last year, according to Organic Exchange. The nonprofit reported that global retail sales of organic cotton apparel and home textile products increased 35 percent in 2009, to $4.3 billion from $3.2 billion in 2008. The organization called this growth particularly significant in comparison to the overall global apparel and household textiles market, which reported a sales decrease of nearly 7 percent due to the recession.

According to Organic Exchange, the top twelve brands and retailers who used organic cotton in 2009 included activewear manufacturer Anvil Knitwear; Walmart; H&M; Target; Nordstrom; Greensource Organic Cotton Clothing Co.; and C&A, a Belgian retail chain selling categories including lingerie and swimwear at discount prices.

The organization expects the global organic cotton market will grow 20 to 40 percent in both 2010 and 2011.
