What to love about this brand: Conventional cotton uses about 16% of the world’s insecticides and 7% of pesticides. In addition, the World Bank estimates that around 20% of industrial water pollution in the world comes from the treatment and dyeing of textiles. Not to mention the issues around forced labor, child labor, and factory collapses… it’s a dirty business (and we’re on a mission to change it).
No toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton. It doesn’t damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 71% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Organic certification in manufacturing requries dyes to meet biodegradability/eliminability standards, the proper treatment of water, and prohibits the use of toxic heavy metals.
Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers grow more than one crop which supplements their food and income. In India, farmers have the added benefit of earning the Fair Trade premium.
Our organic cotton is certified by The Global Organic Textile Standard. One of the key pillars of GOTS is the protection of workers’ rights. Employment is freely chosen, working conditions are safe and hygienic, living wages are paid, no discrimination is practiced, and no child labor is used.
We believe shoppers can change industries with the simple, everyday choices of our purchasing decisions. By choosing organic over conventional cotton you have the power to influence people and planet in a big way. Organic cotton makes up less than 1% of the world’s global cotton supply – that’s a big opportunity for change! (from Here)
