Organic cotton is grown using no fertilizers or pesticides, which prevents contamination to local water sources, helps biodiversity, and protects agriculture workers from toxic chemicals. It’s non-GMO, uses less water than conventional cotton farming, and encourages crop rotation for healthier soil.
When present, GOTS or OCS organic cotton certifications tell us that cotton was grown organically and also ensure that workers’ rights were protected throughout the supply chain – from growing the cotton in the field to sewing the garment in a factory.
WHEN YOU SAY “ETHICAL”...
In this case, we mean: Garments are either Fair Wear or WRAP Gold certified, meaning workers were paid a living wage (Fair Wear) or at least a fair legal minimum wage (WRAP), and factories don’t allow child labor, forced labor, or unsafe working conditions. This brand is totally vegan and uses nontoxic, water-based inks for printing (instead of the typical plastic-based inks used for other screen prints).
