Why Organic Cotton?

Better for the Planet

Conventionally grown cotton consumes approximately 25% of the insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides used in the world. The runoff from these chemicals does irreparable damage to the soil and contaminates nearby groundwater. Organic cotton, as regulated by the USDA, is grown without any chemicals.

Better for Workers

In most of the world, cotton is harvested by hand, meaning laborers at conventional cotton farms are constantly exposed to carcinogenic pesticides and insecticides that have been sprayed on the crop.

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 are paid a living wage.

Better for You

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 all of toxic pesticides and chemicals present in conventional cotton and dyes.
