World Cotton Day Logo and Resources

While the ICAC and its partners are encouraging associations, businesses and individuals to plan and hold their own World Cotton Day celebrations, it's important that we maximise the overall impact of this important day on the public. The best way to do that is to use a common set of images and guidelines to ensure that all of the events around the world are recognised as part of a single, worldwide celebration of cotton.

Please be creative and arrange whatever type of event you feel is best to celebrate World Cotton Day in your community, but we ask that all events around the world use the official World Cotton Day logo and branding practices. This will ensure the world recognises that while the events will be held around the world, it's all part of the same effort to promote the world's most important natural fibre.

While no one is required to have a specific theme, it's the belief of the ICAC that the more we speak with a consitent message at events around the world, the more impact World Cotton Day will have. The primary theme the ICAC and its partners will emphasise is 'Cotton for Good' to reflect the many, many wonderful things that cotton brings to our lives: employment (in some of the word's least-developed countries), use of natural fibres, the many uses of the versatile cotton plant, protecting the environment from plastic polution, and so much more.
