Why choose organic

During the developmental stage, a baby's skin is very delicate and absorbent. This means their skin will absorb more of all the things in comes into contact with including the hard chemicals found on clothing. Organic clothing that is GOTS certified is subject to a strict process that that removes and regulates the use of harmful chemicals on organic cotton. The manufacturers and supplies involved in the production of organic cotton are held accountable via inspections and strict protocol meaning that our babies' tender skins are protected.
2. Protects the environment
The methods used in organic cotton farming are much more sustainable and ethical in comparison to tradition farming methods. The process uses much less energy and water meaning that 94% less greenhouse gases and emissions are produced. Strict GOTS regulations prohibits the use of harmful chemicals and mandates processing units to treat all wastewater to protect water supplies.
3. Benefits to factory and farm workers
Due to the strict GOTS regulations, farmers and factory workers do not come into contact with any toxic chemicals during the production of the organic cotton meaning their health is not effected. They are able to used saved cotton seeds as they are free from chemical damage allowing for more sustainable farming. They are able to grow food along side the cotton as the soil is not polluted which in turns allows for more income. The good working conditions and fair wage naturally means workers are happier. Child or forced labour is also banner under GOTS regulations and standards.
