- In most of the world, cotton is harvested by hand. This means that the workers at conventional cotton farms are exposed to carcinogenic pesticides and insecticides that have been sprayed on the crop-though inhalation, skin contact and ingestion. Organic cotton eliminates exposure to these toxins. Our GOTS certification also means that through our whole supply chain, workers are guaranteed safe working conditions and paid fair wages.
For the environment
- Conventionally grown cotton consumes nearly 20% of the world’s insecticides and more than 10% of the world’s pesticides. The runoff from these chemicals cause irreparable damage to the soil and contaminates nearby groundwater. Organic cotton, as regulated by the USDA, is grown without any harmful chemicals.
For you & your family
- Skin is the body’s largest organ. We absorb all kinds of environmental toxins through our pores. By wearing clothing made with organic cotton, you can avoid exposure to toxic chemicals present in conventionally grown cotton.
For agriculture & farmers
- Organic cotton, especially regenerative organic cotton, diversifies farmers’ income stream with crop rotation, reduces soil erosion, uses less water, decreases fossil fuel emission, fosters fair treatment of workers, and reduces our carbon footprint by way of carbon sequestration in the soil.
