On Drives Growth Through A Purposeful Culture And Storytelling

Purpose At Work: How Australia’s Cotton:On Drives Growth Through A Purposeful Culture And … [+] Storytelling

As CEO, Peter Johnson has been integral in the growth of The Cotton:On Group (COG), Australia’s largest global retailer, which specializes in affordable fashion clothing, planet-conscious sportswear, quirky stationery, decorative arts, and some housewares. Johnson’s been with the company 17 years, and supervised the store footprint’s expansion from 50 Australian Cotton:On stores in 2004, to now about 1,500 stores globally, and a suite of eight brands, operating in 22 countries, supported by a global workforce of more than 17,000 people.

“You can see store numbers growing [10–20 percent annual square-foot growth], and brands growing, and countries growing, and everyone assumes it’s a typical retail business that’s got this obsession with opening more stores and getting bigger and stronger,” Johnson tells We First. “And that’s true. There’s a strong sense of competition and pride in that aspect of the work. But from day one, our owner, our founder [Nigel Austin] has just wanted to do it differently. ‘Rebel’ is the wrong word, but he doesn’t want to be a big corporate. He doesn’t want to follow the same rules as everyone else. He’s a disruptor. He likes to do things … because they’re the right thing to do, not because the manual said, ‘This is how you run a retail business,’” Johnson says.

Cottoning On to the company culture

“Here’s how we do things,” Johnson explains. “Around this deeper meaning. We do things beyond the P&L. It’s how we treat people. It’s how we treat our [850+] suppliers. It’s not walking past things that we know are wrong.”

COG calls it a “People First” value, and it’s the primary engine for the company’s growth.

“We’re a group of people that love being together,” the company wrote in September 2020. “Our work mates are our real mates — so connectivity has been the driving force behind the way we’ve pivoted to meet the changing needs of our people when it comes to working together.”

Much of the company’s internal storytelling derives from its origins, and Austin’s “People First” priority. Austin, according to Johnson, once told him, “‘I want so-and-so to walk down the street and feel bloody good that he’s part of this amazing business that he’s been able to contribute to. And he’s a rockstar. People see him and they say, “Hey, that guy works for Cotton On,”’ Johnson relates. “So originally it was all about, ‘Let’s do good for our people because the better we make this business for the people who work for it, the better the business will be’ … It all started with ‘Let’s just do the right thing for our team.’”

Doing the right thing includes celebrating inspirational team members’ — not the company’s — values-based accomplishments. Team members are recognized quarterly and annually, and rewarded for their operating efforts, love for customers and their teammates, and contributing to the overall good COG is doing both on the corporate level, and through its philanthropic arm, the Cotton On Foundation, which focuses on the development and support of projects within the communities it touches.

“Being private,” Johnson says, “we never talk about [these good things we do]. Well, historically we haven’t. That’s been changing the last few years. Not because we’ve had to, but because we think it’s important to share. We think it’s an important story to share and it’s getting more important. [Customers] want to know because they know [our society’s] in trouble.”

Cottoning On to consumer concerns

“You’ve just got to watch the customer,” Johnson advises, still echoing Austin’s precepts. “They’re telling you something every day. They’re telling you what they want. They’re telling you what they don’t want. And even in this space, it’s really important … the customer’s telling us they want brands with purpose. They’re telling us they want brands who do something beyond just making them feel good in the t-shirt they’re wearing.”

So, the company’s “People First” value “evolved over the years to include consumer” needs and demands, says Johnson. It learned to “blend the two things together: Always watch the customer, always respond to the customer’s need — and do good for our team.” It learned to “make this business a business that looks after them and contributes to their life — not just one-way traffic.

“We should be doing the same thing for our customer as we are for our team.” So, COG’s brand building and societal service “grew out from that internal focus,” Johnson says.

This is one main reason we acknowledge COG as a Lead With We frontrunner — it’s leading up a Virtuous Spiral of purpose through its company culture and out into the communities it serves — then beyond, working on solutions to global problems.

Cottoning On to community architecture and societal change

“Making a positive difference in people’s lives is COG’s purpose,” the company states. “It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning and drives our every move.” Leaders describe it as “kind of like a really strong cup of coffee.”

“The Good” COG does stems from its “purpose to make a positive difference in people’s lives … that’s our North Star,” says Johnson. Efforts include ethical sourcing, sustainability measures and commitments, and community partnerships (a “support your mates” mentality). The latter includes anti-hunger, children’s health care, clothing the needy, mental health, family empowerment, regenerative agriculture, and firefighting — essential of late in Australia and elsewhere. The company’s even a major long-term sponsor of the AFL Women’s, the Australian rules football league for female players, which gets all its kit from COG.

Taking advantage of its strong philanthropic history in South Africa and Uganda, COG is also helping UNICEF deliver an equitable distribution of 1 million COVID-19 vaccinations to the world’s teachers, healthcare workers, and others most vulnerable to the disease.

“We’re here to create meaningful social and environmental change for our current generations, and future ones, too,” the company says. “It’s a movement; a constantly evolving journey to make good on our purpose of making a positive difference. For people, the planet, and the things that matter.”

Johnson’s counsel

Johnson offers the following advice for leaders at businesses of all sizes to follow COG’s lead:

  1. Stick together around a collective purpose, seeking broad buy-in. “One of my frustrations about this pandemic [is that] early on, everyone just put aside their political bias and their egos. And it became, ‘Hey, this is serious. The best way to do this is together.’ But it’s been frustrating that it has disappeared over the journey, unfortunately. To build a brand with purpose, as opposed to building a business that sells product [requires that] every day, that’s the message we’ve got to drive through our organization. And there’s [maybe thousands of] people who’ve been trained to sell products. So, it’s going to take time to really embed it as a core part of your being. But if you focus on that and if you stay true to that, I think [that] brand with purpose will solve the climate change issue, and the sustainability issue, and the way we treat people. So, embed the brand with purpose at every stage of your vision, and your strategy, and your strategic priorities. And it comes through, it cuts through every part of your business.”
  2. Focus on the supply chain. “We’ve got to work with our suppliers and our partners, and we’ve got to keep challenging and working on solutions for that. And I mean real solutions. I don’t mean tick-the-box solutions … The suppliers want to do this. Suppliers aren’t sitting there saying, ‘We don’t want to be involved in the solution here.’ They know. They’re not silly. They know that to be a preferred supplier of a business like ours, they have to really partner with us. They have to do these things. So, we’re seeing no pushback. There’s no challenge to the things we’re trying to do with them. It’s just a matter of catching up. It’s just a matter of getting the technology in place, whether it’s the denim washing that we do” or updated packaging, or converting into solar energy and LED lighting.
  3. Aim high. The confluence of crises the world is facing are only getting more dire, more intertwined. And companies like COG are both admitting they’ve got a ways to go, but still trying to live up to bold commitments on carbon neutrality, ecosystem degradation, workplace fairness and justice, and a host of other challenges to business and society. “Just saying, ‘We’re getting better at this” is not good enough anymore because getting better might mean you’re miles behind.”

Fearne Cotton on the dangerous side effects of ‘picture-perfect’ Instagram posts

Fearne Cotton is known for her honest, fuss-free social Instagram posts, depicting the day-to-day realities of parenting, insomnia, anxiety, and a whole host of other very normal states.

Keen to show the ‘imperfect’ side of life on her account – amongst a barrage of unrealistic, filtered snaps – the 39 year-old mum-of-two (and step-mum to two teenagers) can be seen regularly posting pictures of herself after a long night of no sleep, and has now taken to the social media site to vent about the importance of concentrating less on posting flawless photos to Instagram and instead focusing more on the story behind them.

Revealing that although she’s been feeling particularly agitated this week – due to a distinct loss of control over the very real effects the coronavirus pandemic is having on people around her – the Happy Place podcaster realised that her social media use is one area she actually does have control over.

Taking to her Instagram account with a lengthy post this week, Cotton opened up a discussion around why we all feel the need to post picture-perfect selfies of the ‘peachiest arse’ and ‘poutiest lips’, and that we will never reach this mythical ‘mental utopia’ by trying to look like these unattainable pictures, which are really just a ‘contrived snapshot in time.’

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

Explaining that – despite loving how ‘connective, dynamic’ and ‘educational’ the platform can be – she’s ‘frustrated,’ as a mother of two girls, to see these these superficial photos constantly posted, with heavy emphasis on ‘surface stuff.

‘I am constantly bamboozled when it comes to certain areas of the Instagram world,’ Cotton started the post. ‘Some of the most influential people on here purely showcase picture perfect selfies, designer clothes and a certain lifestyle.

‘First up, if that’s what floats their boat fine, this is not an attack from me but where I feel I can help out is to start a conversation about how that information is processed by our human brain.

‘Unfortunately these sorts of images lead to most of us believing, even if on a subterranean level, that if we have the poutiest lips, the most perfect hair, the peachiest arse, then we will reach some sort of mental utopia.

‘These photos offer an empty promise. They’re a contrived snapshot in time with no depth. Pretty? Sure! But helpful to us individually? I doubt it. Why do we value the surface so much more than the story?’

Happy: Finding joy in every day and letting go of perfect (Paperback)

Cotton, who released her book Happy: Finding Joy in Every Day and Letting Go of Perfect back in 2017, then went on to highlight several accounts she believes are worth following which make her feel happy and ‘champion courage and welcome conversation.’

‘Follow people that make you happy. I can give you some suggestions of people I believe should have the biggest followings on here… @samantharenke @henryfraser0 @anniejprice @howtoglitteraturd to name just a few. People who champion courage and joy and welcome conversation.

‘As I’ve said this is not an attack on anyone, merely a chance to look at what makes us feel good and what we are happy for the next generation to be influenced by.

‘Another option is to put your phone down and get in nature. I feel so happy when I’m outside, much better than I would spending an hour scrolling through photos of smooth foreheads, shiny bums and contoured cheeks.

Finishing the caption by admitting she herself doesn’t use Instagram perfectly, but encouraging her followers to continue the conversation and ‘work out how we can put more emphasis on the story behind the photo.’

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

Cotton production linked to images of the dried up Aral Sea basin | Guardian sustainable business

What do the catwalks of Paris have to do with 25,000 miles of exposed sea bed thousands of miles to the east? While all eyes have been fixed on designer collections and members of the front row, the true cost of the fashion industry has been revealed in a shock announcement by NASA that the Aral Sea in Central Asia has now completely dried up.

The Aral Sea was once the world’s fourth largest lake, home to 24 species of fish and surrounded by fishing communities, lush forests and wetlands. While the lake was salt water, the rivers that fed it were fresh water. In the 1950’s the Soviet Union began using the rivers to irrigate the surrounding agricultural area, a process that has been continued to this day by Uzbekistan’s brutal dictator Islam Karimov.

The exposure of the bottom of the lake has released salts and pesticides into the atmosphere poisoning both farm land and people alike. Carcinogenic dust is blown into villages causing throat cancers and respiratory diseases.

The fashion industry is linked to this horror of dictatorships and environmental devastation by the fact that the crop being grown with the river water is cotton – 1.47m hectares of cotton. A hugely water intensive crop, one shirt can use up to 2,700 litres.

“Conventional cotton (as opposed to organic cotton) has got to be one of the most unsustainable fibres in the world,” says fashion designer and environmentalist Katharine Hamnett. “Conventional cotton uses a huge amount of water and also huge amounts of pesticides which cause 350,000 farmer deaths a year and a million hospitalisations.”

Reflecting on the loss of the Aral Sea, Hamnett states: “This is not just climate change this is an extinction issue. As Vandana Shiva said ‘no species has deliberately designed its own extinction’, but with industrial agriculture we have. The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, causing human misery, enormous cost of life and gigantic environmental devastation.”

The harvest of Uzbek cotton is taking place right now – it started on the 5 September and is expected to last until the end of October. The harvest itself is also a horror story, on top of the environmental devastation, this is cotton picked using forced labour. Every year hundreds of thousands of people are systematically sent to work in the fields by the government.

Under pressure from campaigners, in 2012, Uzbek authorities banned the use of child labour in the cotton harvest, but it is a ban that is routinely flouted. In 2013 there were 11 deaths during the harvest (pdf), including a six year old child, Amirbek Rakhmatov, who accompanied his mother to the fields and suffocated after falling asleep on a cotton truck.

Campaigners have also managed to get 153 fashion brands to sign a pledge to never knowingly use Uzbek cotton. Anti-Slavery International have worked on this fashion campaign but acknowledge that despite successes there is still a long way to go.

“Not knowingly using Uzbek cotton and actually ensuring that you don’t use Uzbek cotton are two completely different things,” explains Jakub Sobik, press officer at Anti-Slavery International.

One major problem that Sobik points out is that much of the Uzbek cotton crop now ends up in Bangladesh and China – key suppliers for European brands. “Whilst it is very hard to trace the cotton back to where it comes from because the supply chain is so subcontracted and deregulated, brands have a responsibility to ensure that slave picked cotton is not polluting their own supply chain.”

The two issues – of environmental destruction and forced labour – are intrinsically linked. “Changing the policy that puts farmers and citizens in the position of forced labour to harvest cotton is the essential first step to addressing the overall picture,” states Matt Fischer-Daly from the Cotton Campaign, an international coalition working to end Uzbek slavery. “Farmers free to diversify their crops and escape local government controlled monopolies are the lynch pin to changing the ecological impacts.”

With cotton one of Uzbekistan’s largest cash crops (pdf) accounting for 11.3% of the country’s export earning in 2010-2011 and with little criticism of President Karimov’s human rights record by his allies in the US and UK, there are serious hurdles to overcome. Hurdles that could be lessened if fashion conglomerates demanded higher standards.

This could be done by brands implementing legally binding contracts with suppliers that ensure suppliers and sub-suppliers do not ever purchase Uzbek cotton. The contracts could be verified using traceability systems and social audits, a process that requires time and money but which is fully achievable. Hamnett advises another key step – phasing out conventional cotton and investing instead in its far more sustainable counterpart: organic cotton.

The environmental impact of losing the Aral Sea is not yet known, what we do know is that the cotton that destroyed it, is cotton picked by forced labour and destined for European shops. This is the reality of a subcontracted deregulated industry not bound by any global environmental or minimum wage legislation.

There was nothing accidental about what is happening in Central Asia, a catastrophe that has provided irrefutable evidence of the damage being done to our planet by the fashion industry. We can either focus on Paris Fashion Week or we can act now to save our world. But to ignore the industry’s role in the loss of the Aral Sea is to ignore the destruction of our planet.

China Is Growing Cotton on the Moon

Update (January 16, 2019): The cotton sprouts growing on the moon have died. They did not survive lunar night, which can reach -173 °Celsius. Mission planners didn’t expect the plants to live, Newsweek reports.

There’s cotton growing on the far side of the moon—the first time plants have sprouted there. On January 3, a lunar lander called Chang’e-4 touched down on the moon, deploying a rover to explore lunar terrain. The lander also carries a container filled with soil and cotton and potato seeds, and the cotton seeds are now sprouting, an image released by the China National Space Administration today (January 15) shows. The image was published on the People’s Daily, China twitter feed, which is run by the country’s state-owned media group.

“Learning about these plants’ growth in a low-gravity environment would allow us to lay the foundation for our future establishment of space base,” Chongqing University’s Liu Hanlong, who is leading the experiment, says in a statement, according to the South China Morning Post. The space agency is developing preliminary plans for a crewed lunar landing mission in the 2030s, with the possibility of building a moon base with international cooperation afterward.

Researchers have been working on several projects to grow plants on the international space station as a step toward understanding how they would grow on the moon. This is the first time that scientists have gotten seeds to sprout there. The soil and seeds are secured in an airtight container designed to maintain a temperature of 25 °C. There’s also rapeseed, Arabidopsis, and potato in the soil in the container, along with yeast and fruit fly eggs. The organisms have access to air, water, and other nutrients to help them grow and act as a biosphere, with the yeast decomposing the dead plants and fly waste while serving as food for the flies.

The sprouting is “good news,” Fred Watson, the Australian Astronomical Observatory’s astronomer-at-large, tells the BBC. “It suggests that there might not be insurmountable problems for astronauts in [the] future trying to grow their own crops on the moon in a controlled environment.”

    Method for printing photos on fabric – sublimation

    In the modern world, printing photos on any type of fabric has become very affordable.The application of a photo on the fabric is carried out on special equipment by the sublimation method. It is a technology that allows ink to penetrate the interior of fabric fibers. The result of such printing will be a beautiful, bright and clear photo on fabric that will serve you for many years, no matter what type of fabric it will be printed on. The fabric with the printed photos can be washed in the washing machine and ironed, while the quality of the photo will not deteriorate in the least. The inks we use are odorless, non-toxic, non-allergenic and can even be used in clothing. Such a product does not fade during washing, because the coloring pigment is securely fixed inside the fabric fiber.

    90,000 Scientists invented a cheap fridge T-shirt // Look

    In Central Asia, they traditionally protect themselves from the heat with a cotton robe – it does not let the sun’s heat into the body. Scientists from China have developed a special fabric for heat with the opposite effect – it takes heat from the body and gives it out like a refrigerator. The new fabric looks like a casual T-shirt and can cool the body by up to 5 ° C.

    Engineers-researchers went from nature: they used the properties of infrared radiation of human skin. This is mid-infrared radiation (MIR). It feels like warmth.

    A team of inventors from two Chinese universities started from the experience of five years ago American colleagues from Stanford University. They created a cooling cloth from nanoporous polyethylene with a thickness of 45 micrometers – 0.045 millimeters.A tissue as thick as a human hair could possibly reduce body temperature by about 3 ° C. But it raised doubts about its strength and durability.

    Engineers Ma Yaoguang from Zhejiang University and Tao Guangming from Huazhong University of Science and Technology decided to create a thicker and more durable fabric. To do this, they took a different approach.

    Together with colleagues, they developed a textile from a mixture of polylactide with titanium dioxide nanoparticles embedded in its fibers.The result is a piece of cloth 550 micrometers thick – 0.55 millimeters, ten times thicker than that of American inventors.

    This fabric uses chemical bonds to absorb infrared radiation from the body and radiate it out into the environment. It also reflects near-range ultraviolet, visible and infrared light, further cooling the wearer.

    “Although it [the fabric] looks like a regular shirt, optically it is a mirror,” says Tao Guangming.

    To test the properties of their product, the researchers sewed a tight-fitting vest.One half of it was cut from its cooling fabric, the other from white cotton of about the same thickness.

    The graduate student put on a vest and sat on a chaise longue under the bright sun for an hour. When the researchers measured the temperature of his skin, the side of his body under the new tissue was nearly 5 ° C colder, they reported on July 8 in their article published by Science.

    The contrast of the temperature of the adjacent parts of the body is clearly visible on the image of the infrared camera. Tao Guangming claims that the graduate student in the vest also felt the temperature difference.

    American inventors of the cooling cloth from Stanford are jealously watching their Chinese colleagues and note that it is necessary to figure out whether the Chinese refrigerator cloth works in a loose-fitting state. And whether she will cool the body during movement, and not only in a calm state, they are interested.

    Engineers Ma and Tao have already approached textile manufacturers and clothing companies to reserve space in their warehouses for their fabric. The inventors claim that impregnating the fabric with nanomaterials will increase the cost of fabrication by only 10%

    “We can mass production of new fabrics.This means that anyone can get a T-shirt out of it for the price of a T-shirt out of old fabric, “says Ma.

    In the world, more than five million deaths a year are associated with abnormally low or high air temperatures. If refrigerated T-shirts do hit the mainstream, they are likely to boom in the apparel market in a changing climate.

    But it is not yet known whether such constant cooling will only benefit the body, or can cause colds.

    We previously reported that scientists at the University of Maryland have created a fabric that will cool the body in the heat and keep it warm in the cold. They also said that the climate strongly influenced the evolution of the human body and brain.

    Selection of the best wash cycle before or after the first wash

    Clothing made from natural materials

    Plain and angora wool, silk, linen, cashmere should always be hand washed in cold water.

    Synthetic clothing

    Nylon, Lycra, Drillon, Coolmax, Gore-Tech, etc. can be washed in the washing machine and automatically wrung out, unless it contains stretchable materials.

    Organic cotton

    This type of fabric does not cause allergies or skin irritation. Organic cotton contains no pesticides, no foreign chemicals or heavy metals. Hence, it is very gentle on your skin. However, even clothes made from such fabric are recommended to be washed at a temperature not exceeding 40 degrees, before putting them on for the first time.

    Silk

    At first, it is important to wash things made of this material separately and by hand, as otherwise some of their paint may end up on other things.

    Velvet and dark materials

    Clothes made of similar materials, on which down and lint easily stick, should not be washed together with clothes made of fragile fibers, for example, with terry towels. Be careful with black items, they can easily turn gray! But this problem can be solved: wash them at low speeds, at a low temperature, and do not use more washing powder than necessary.Most importantly, remember to turn dark clothes and jeans inside out before washing.

    Colored clothes

    Before putting a new bright red sweater in the washing machine, we recommend that you do a little check. Dip one of the sleeves in very hot water and then run it over a white towel. If the towel turns pinkish, this sweater should be washed either separately from other clothes or by hand in cold water. You can repeat this check before the second wash!

    Tip: Before sending items to the washing machine, do not forget to button them all up and turn them inside out.This simple procedure prevents colored items from fading over time. So why not start following this helpful advice from the very first wash?
