Sustainably made from GOTS certified organic cotton
Conventional (non-organic) cotton is dirty. And by dirty, we mean 90% of it is genetically modified and it uses 11% of the world’s pesticides and 24% of the world’s insecticides. To top it off, it’s processed using heavy metals, petroleum, and chlorine bleaching. Gross, right?
That’s why we use GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton. This means our cotton is natural, non-toxic, fair-trade, GMO-free, and grown using sustainable methods that reduce water usage, promote biodiversity, and treat workers well.
But what about other fabrics? Clothing made using common synthetics like polyester can take up to 200 years to break down and has contributed around 85% of the plastic pollution in the ocean. By using organic cotton (even our thread is organic cotton) and cotton-rubber blend elastic, our garments are 100% biodegradable and compostable.
