Climate Beneficial™ cotton is cotton grown with regenerative farming practices focused on carbon sequestration, groundwater recharge, and building healthy soil ecosystems for farming systems in California. Regenerative farming goes beyond organic to support more robust and nutritious food production, biodiversity, and the reduced need for irrigation, fertilizers, and pesticides.

SUPPLY CHAIN PARTNERS
HEMP PARTNERS: The hemp fiber is our pads is grown by our farming partners in North Carolina, Montana, and Germany and is purified in North Carolina and Germany. We are working together to advance technology and expand farming operations for hemp fiber. Your support directly supports the scaling of hemp fiber cultivation for a bigger environmental impact.
COTTON PARTNERS: We choose to grow our Climate Beneficial™ cotton in the Central Valley of
California because farmers here are known for growing highest quality cotton in
the world, yet the land suffers greatly from drought and over-farming. When you purchase TRACE pads, you financially and directly support our farming partners' ability to dedicate new acreage to regenerative farming practices. The more TRACE pads we use, the more earth healing we achieve.
UP-CLOSE WITH NATURE
Celebrate the beauty of nature. TRACE's hemp fiber is purified with a gentle, non-toxic proprietary process that does not bleach the fibers. Hemp fiber has natural variations in color from a light tan to a dark gray. It is normal to see flecks of this beautiful fiber in your pad that may vary in appearance from pad-to-pad and box-to-box.
RESTORING THE LAND
WHAT IS REGENERATIVE?
There is no single definition of regenerative agriculture because each plot of land holds is own unique personality, history, and need. Our fibers are grown to meet each acre's specific need and special legacy. Restoring soil health allows the ground to hold more water and supports the living, microscopic ecosystems that sustain crops without fertilizers while maintaining the delicate balance of nature for generations to come.
Our products are made from the tender stalk fibers of carefully chosen hemp plant varieties. These fibers, when handled properly, absorb and wick moisture better than cotton while remaining soft and supple. The hemp plant itself grows well without pesticides or irrigation. With a long tap-root that extends further than most crops, this rapidly-renewable plant sequesters carbon and cools soils to help reverse the damage of climate change.
