The study is a holistic and comprehensive view of the life cycle of cotton textile products. The LCI is a collection of data sets that quantify relevant energy and material inputs and environmental release data associated with the production of cotton from cradle to- gate (fiber), and manufacturing from gate-to-gate (fabric). The associated LCA draws on the LCI data to model the environmental impact of representative cotton apparel (a knit golf shirt and woven cotton trousers) from the field through to consumer care, use and disposal (cradle-to-grave).
