"The Sustainable Cotton Project (SCP) is an internationally recognized California-farm based program dedicated to changing the way cotton, one of the world's most widely traded commodities, is farmed and marketed.

"We connect growers, manufacturers and consumers to develop a Cleaner Cotton™ supply chain in California's productive Central Valley. Founded in 1996, SCP works with innovative growers to produce a high-quality fiber without using the most toxic pesticides and herbicides in agriculture."[1]
