Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from Next Gen Cotton?

Crinkled shirts and disposable fashion could soon be a thing of the past with CSIRO researchers developing more sustainable and environmentally friendly varieties of cotton.

Through exploring the properties of the cotton itself, researchers are able to modify a small part of the plant to make the product more sustainable, without affecting the growing process.

Sarah caught up with Madeline Mitchell a Plant Scientist at the CSIRO to find out all about where this could lead in the future.
