We love Organic

Why do we love organic?

Because we don’t like pesticides.

R

The organic cotton we use to make our clothes is grown without using any harmful chemicals.

This means the cotton fibers don’t get broken so our organic cotton incredibly soft, long lasting and

kind to even the most delicate and sensitive skin.

Choosing organic is better for your child, better for the planet and better for the health of the farmers.

Conventional cotton is intensely sprayed with pesticides, whereas organic production

gives farmers and their families a much safer environment to work and live in.

R

Done properly organic agriculture is a joy to behold. Good bugs and traps are used to catch the bad bugs.

Natural fertilisers and manure are used and sensible crop rotation keeps nutrients in the soil.

Farmers are often organised in co-operatives so they can support to each other.

R

Despite this, organic farming isn’t the easy option. It requires careful planning and hard work, and

farmers still lead a precarious existence, but few who convert to organic

consider returning to chemical based agriculture. More farmers want to convert,

but they need to be able to sell their organic cotton once it’s ready.

So what they need is for more of us to

#choose organic!
