Conventional cotton uses 24% of pesticides and 11% of insecticides worldwide. The impact of these toxic chemicals is far reaching, affecting not only the farmers who have direct contact with these chemicals, but also their families and communities whose waterways can be polluted. Not to mention that these chemicals are ingrained in the fibre, and also can affect the wearer’s skin.
Our organic cotton is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. This ensures that all steps within the process are certified organic. From the seed to the ginning and spinning and dying and printing no harmful chemicals are used. Learn more www.global-standard.org
The first step in the right direction. Our first Fairtrade organic cotton product was this simple drawstring bag. It’s paved the way for changing our entire supply chain.
