The company aims to make strategies and plans that aim from the supply chain and grow uptown the cultivation of fibers. WTS is known for maintaining ethical production standards throughout its manufacturing process.
The company is established in Peru and has the advantage at the source while launching sustainable initiatives. The country is known for producing 85% of organic cotton in Latin America.
One of the company’s projects comes from the cotton supplier Bergman Rivera. They are commencing their first pilot of regenerative organic cotton certified in Peru.
For every 1000 units, the company regenerates, one acre of soil will be saved for the future. As WTS evolves, Peru is still the most advanced country when it comes to regenerative farming as they have a long-term commitment towards regenerative practices.
This regenerative process is now held keeping in mind official standards. In August, the Regenerative Organic Alliance (ROA) released its standard for Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC) products after the completion of a pilot program in 2019. Consumers can now view their purchase supports farmworkers, soil health and pasture-based animal welfare by choosing a ROC product. The new certification process also has three levels namely, bronze, silver, and gold that require farms and businesses to phase in more meticulous regenerative practices over time.
In order to qualify for the ROC, farms should have acquired USDA organic certification. In doing so they also have to fulfill further criteria by ensuring soil health, animal welfare and social fairness making sure they are practicing the highest standards set for organic agriculture.
