Products marked as ''100% sustainable'' on our website use GOTS-certified organic cotton + recycled fabrics. 90% of our collections are sustainable and we are prioritizing switching to 100% within the next year.
This is our priority as sustainable fabric choice is one of the most impactful ways to reduce harm to our environment. 20% of industrial water pollution comes from textile treatments and dyes, which use over 800 chemicals that farmers + factory workers breathe in.
Organic cotton uses no chemicals, fertilizers or pesticides to produce, protecting local habitats and the farmers which grow it. It also uses less water, preserves soil quality, and limits soil erosion.
One more crucial reason to steer clear of clothing treated with toxic chemicals is the risk of these substances being absorbed into your skin during daily wear. In contrast, organic cotton garments provide a safer option for consumers, as they are manufactured without the use of harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, ammonia, and softening agents. This means you won't have to worry about trace amounts of these toxins transferring to your skin with each use.
