U. S. cotton growers committed to the principles and practices of sustainability are leading the way with e3 cotton that is certified, verified, and audited.

The e3 program is: socially equitable - supporting high standards and practices which allow growers, laborers and the surrounding rural farm community to thrive; economically viable - helping to make farms and families financially competitive enterprises which are consistently profitable year over year; and environmentally responsible - encouraging reduced use of water, land and energy while maintaining productivity.
