Target aims for 100% sustainable cotton by 2022 by The Good Shopping Guide | Oct 12, 2017 | Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments Retailer and clothing giant, Target, one of the largest cotton importers in the US, has announced the aim of sourcing 100% sustainable cotton by 2022.

It was also announced last year that their own brand productions would replace conventional polyester with recycled plastics. Learn more.
