GOTS also verify that everybody involved in the production chain is earning a fair wage and no child labour is used. By buying GOTS certified products you are not just buying organic, you are
supporting sustainability and ethics in the textile industry.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers and harmful pesticides, keeping the soil fertile, water clean, and air pure for future generations.
Organic cotton farmers and their families don’t have to handle any toxins, and they receive a premium price for their cotton, which can help elevate entire communities out of poverty.
