Why use organic cotton?
Better for your child
• Organic cotton is grown without the nasty chemicals that can break down cotton fibres, so our cotton is not just extremely soft, it’s also really durable and long-lasting too.
• Plus it's free from toxins that can irritate your little ones skin, so it’s a fantastic fabric to use if your child has sensitive skin or eczema.
Organic Cotton is not just better for us to wear…
Better for the Farmers
• Conventional cotton is intensely sprayed with pesticides that can damage farmers health. But organic production gives farmers and their families a much safer environment to work and live in.
• Organic farmers always grow other crops alongside their cotton, which can provide another source of income plus an accessible and diverse food supply for their community.
• Plus organic cotton farmers normally work together in cooperatives so share knowledge and support one another.
Organic is kinder to everyone!
Better for the planet
• Organic farming uses natural methods to grow cotton. Done properly organic agriculture is a joy to behold. Good bugs and traps are used to catch the bad bugs. Natural fertlisers and manure are used and sensible crop rotation keeps nutrients in the soil.
• Removing hazardous synthetic pesticides and fertilisers keeps rivers, lakes and drinking water cleaner, and leads to 46% less greenhouse gas emissions than non-organic.*
• GM seeds are banned, so farmers save their seeds year after year, and work with the environment in a long-term, sustainable way.
