Organic By Choice
and WE Choose Organic
Organic cotton can be found in everything, from clothing, footwear and home
furnishings personal care items and even stationery and note cards.
Organic cotton is cotton that is produced and certified
to organic agricultural standards. Its production sustains
the health of soils, ecosystems and people by using
natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Importantly
organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic
chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms).
Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to
benefit the shared environment and promote a good
quality of life for all involved.
Planting Organic Cotton also means
that the Farmer has planted different crops
This also helps nurture the soil and allows the Cotton to grow in a more protected
and therefore efficient way. It enriches the wildlife and nature that surrounds it, contributing
to the betterment of the environment.
The third most important difference is the water usage. 80% of the water used in Organic Cotton plantations comes from the rain. This is especially important for countries where the water is scarce. People can be thirsty, getting sick for lack of water while cotton crops are filled of it.

personal care items (sanitary products, make-up removal pads, cotton puffs and ear swabs),

If it is certified to an organic standard you can be sure it’s organic…
Just because a garment is labeled as green, sustainable or eco friendly does not make it organic. Cotton clothing is only organic if it is certified to an organic cotton standard.
OCS (Organic Content Standard) provides third party assurance that the organic content in your clothes can be traced back to source, while GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) traces the organic content in your clothes and ensures that it is processed socially and sustainably.
