Gildan is excited to launch its third consecutive Centraide fundraising campaign within its Montreal offices. The funds raised during this campaign will help to support over 350 community agencies in the Greater Montreal area that work to support youth success, take care of the essentials, break social isolation and build caring communities.
In honor of the first World Cotton Day organized by the World Trade Organization, Marc Doyon, Vice President Commodities at Gildan talks about the important industry partnerships that have helped shape the reputation of US cotton as an increasingly sustainable fiber.
Q. What are the advantages of cotton for making garments?
For the consumer, cotton is a natural fiber that offers a soft, comfortable feel which is breathable. On hot days, it pulls moisture away from the skin and allows the body to better regulate its temperature.
