Why Choose Organic?
The fashion world is an ever-changing industry of trends, idols, styles and brands!
So how on earth can any of us make sense of it all!
Not only that how do we know if we are buying good quality eco-friendly garments?
Cotton is used in more than 40% of worldwide textile production. There are a staggering 100 million cotton farmers across the globe and over 70 million cotton workers suffer poisoning from toxins and pesticides every year!
I was shocked to hear that 25% of all pesticides used worldwide are used on conventional cotton, and 20% of all freshwater pollution comes from the textile treatment and dyeing process causing sickness for the local communities.
One of the most frightening facts for me was that just one t-shirt made from non-organic cotton a staggering 2500 litres of water is used during production!
A crazy amount of water.
So, when we learnt of this huge demand and devastating impact globally on the environment and workers, we decided very quickly to evolving as a small business, providing you with Ethically Sourced Organic & Handmade clothing and lifestyle products was the direction we pursued.
Organic cotton! is not only Safer for the workers but also a lot safer and kinder for the environment and little one's skin!
Let's face it who doesn't want to do their best to protect their little one's soft peachy skin?
I hear you thinking hmmm, what exactly are the benefits of switching?
