BCI Better Cotton Initiative

BCI Better Cotton Initiative

BCI is a not-for-profit organisation stewarding the global standards for Better Cotton, and bringing together cotton’s complex supply chain, from the farmers to the retailers. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future, by developing Better Cotton as a mainstream sustainable commodity.

By joining BCI, Bjorn Borg participates in transforming the cotton industry by supporting more sustainable ways to produce cotton. Better Cotton is produced by farmers all over the world that minimise the harmful impact of crop protection practices. They are trained to use water efficiently and care for the availability of water, while also caring for the health of the soil and conserving natural habitats.

Cotton is one of the world’s most important natural fibres. Nearly everyone on Earth uses or wears cotton products every day. To meet this demand, over 25 million tonnes of cotton are produced each year in about 75 countries around the world, supporting 250 million people’s livelihoods. Cotton is a renewable natural resource but the future of cotton production is vulnerable to poor environmental management, poor working conditions and unstable markets. In 2005, a group of visionary organisations came together to work out a practical solution that would secure the sustainable future of the industry. The result was Better Cotton.

BETTER COTTON AND BCI

BCI takes a holistic approach to sustainable development by training farmers to grow cotton in a more environmentally, socially and economically responsible way. To bring benefits to the environment, BCI Farmers learn to use synthetic fertilisers and pesticides more efficiently, conserve water, maintain soil health and preserve natural habitats through responsible farming practices. To improve social conditions, BCI addresses the most pressing challenges in cotton production by training farmers to actively phase out human rights abuses, such as child labour, gender inequality, and health and safety risks.

Cotton that is grown in this way meets the Better Cotton Standard System. The standard has been developed by the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), an independent multi stakeholder organisation whose members are committed to making Better Cotton a mainstream commodity.

BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in, and better for the sector’s future. Farmers who grow Better Cotton commit to using the BCI Production Principles:

 

Minimising the harmful impact of crop protection practices

Using water usage efficiently

Caring for soil health

Conserving natural habitats

Preserving fibre quality

Promoting decent work

 

WHERE IS BCI HEADED

 

In 2015, over 1.5 million farmers worldwide were growing Better Cotton, making up 11.9% of global cotton production. By 2020, we want those figures to be 5 million BCI Farmers, producing 30% of the world’s cotton.

Chain Handle Shoulder Bag & Sneakers

Chain Handle Shoulder Bag & Sneakers

While visiting my Dad in the Netherlands over the last few months I’ve noticed a fun and fresh juxtaposition of bag and footwear on the street: a chain shoulder bag worn with sneakersThe lifestyle in the Netherlands is all about comfortable footwear, because most people commute on foot, by bike, or with public transport. Fashion sneakers are common there, and usually dressed up in some way. Hence the juxtaposition of fancy chain handle bag with the sneakers.

Here are some outfit examples that illustrate the look.

JEANS

Combining a chain handle bag with fashion sneakers, jeans, and casual or smart casual support act was a common rendition. Of course, it was colder in the Netherlands so women were wearing knitwear, jackets, coats and scarves too. But you get a good idea of the vibe from this photo. Some carried the shoulder bag cross-body style, which is handy when riding a bike.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN Insignia Textured-leather Shoulder Bag

TRACK PANTS 

I saw a few ladies wear leggings and joggers instead of jeans for a sportier interpretation. Personally, I prefer the modern retro trackpants shown here because of their bootcut silhouette (nice change from body-con leggings). Very ‘70s Adidas, and quite nostalgic for people my age. The denim jacket here is fab, but a leather or pleather moto would work just as well. And the dressy bag makes the look to my eye. Loving the green with the orange and emerald too.

MULBERRY Darley Textured-leather Shoulder Bag

DRESS

Wearing dresses with sneakers works particularly well when the sneaks look less like running shoes (at least, that’s my own preference). Here’s another way to incorporate the chain handle bag with sneakers, which is probably the most acquired taste of them all. The black and white palette helps pull together the look.

MICHAEL MICHAEL KORS Sloan Editor Leather Shoulder Bag

The combination of very dressy bag with very casual sneaker will seem jarring and uncomplementary to some, which is understandable. It IS an unusual pairing, and I’m surprised that I like it. Somehow I find the juxtaposition fun, interesting, modern, fresh, complementary and practical. 

The chain handle bag is a new-to-me silhouette that I’ve had my eye on for a while. And since I’m having a good run with the new fit Converse hi-tops – why not sport them together. So I’ve ordered Karen Millen’s Santa Monica bag to wear with my All Star Converse Brushed Off Leather Hi Tops. The gold chain of the bag and brushed gold effect of the sneakers “match” in a subtle way, which will help pull the look together. The colour of the Converse also matches my pearls, so I’ll be throwing them into the outfit too. The exact items that I want to sport together with jeans, pullover/ blouse, and jacket/coat are represented in the collection.

I rarely do an actual vintage makeup look (although I love how Adele Mildred, the brilliant milliner and artist, has made it her signature) however I enjoy working with classic makeup color combinations such as gold and red.  In the image above, I wanted to create a glamorous look that was modern enough to wear with jeans but could double on the red carpet with a gown.

Note: I am crazy about Jesi’s natural curls and perfect tooth gap!
