We are proud members of Better Cotton
At Christy, we know that everything we make has an impact and we're developing systems to reduce ours. We're striving to create dreamy nights' sleeps and relaxing bath routines that are gentler on our planet. Since 1850, we've had an uncompromising design philosophy; creating functional, beautiful products that are made to last. In recent years, it's become clear that we need to go farther than that—so we can all rest a little easier.
From transitioning to Better Cotton, to introducing our first certified organic collection, we're continuously learning and improving so that we can make products that are better for you and better for the planet. You're invited to learn more about our current certifications, goals, how we're developing, and what we're moving towards.
The Better Cotton (BC) is a global non-profit that aims to make the cotton industry better for the people that produce it, better for the environment that it grows in and better for the cotton industry's future.
But what does better mean?
A few things, really. The Better Cotton trains farmers in practices that actively promote soil health, water stewardship, carbon capture, and biodiversity.
Their 2030 strategy maps out five impact targets:-
Increasing the net income and resilience of two million smallholder cotton farmers and workers- Empower women working in cotton through educational training and resources- Ensure that 100% of Better Cotton Farmers have improved the health of their soil- Reduce the use and risk of synthetic pesticides applied by BCI farmers by at least half. - Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% per tonne of Better Cotton lint.

Made in Green by OEKO-TEX®
OEKO-TEX's Made in Green certification is a fairly rigorous standard. While it's not as stringent as certified organic, any products that have earned the Made in Green label have been held to a high ethical standard guided by four key principles:
To be Made in Green, a product has to be:
This means facilities that proactively manage the chemicals used to dye, print, and process textiles, and that manage their wastewater, textile waste, and emissions responsibly.
Manufactured in socially responsible environments where employees have fair working conditions (like reasonable hours and living wages) and there are bans on forced and child labour. It also specifies that occupational health and safety is in place) there is adequate fire protection, building safety, and protective equipment, and that dust, noise, and heat do not threaten workers' health.
Created in a transparent supply chain so that we can trace the end product back to its source, ensuring things have been properly handled every step of the way.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
We launched our first organic cotton collection in 2022, an important step in pushing our sustainability efforts forward. To make it official, we sought certification by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), the world's leading textile-processing authority on for organic fibers, and the most stringent certification that exists.
GOTS certification starts with organic farming and moves all of the way up the supply chain. From harvesting to processing, weaving, and sewing, GOTS covers everything from the dyes that can be used, to wastewater treatment, to the final packaging that our soft cotton sheets can be folded into and sent to you. It's the gold standard in responsible manufacturing.
