Organic Socks

GOTS Certified Organic Cotton 

DO YOU KNOW: It takes 713 gallons of water to make a non-organic t-shirt.

713 gallons of water is enough for a person to drink for 900 days.

The water consumption of organic cotton is 91% lower than conventional cotton.

CONVENTIONAL COTTON: conventionally grown cotton requires unsustainable amounts of chemical pesticides, which has a harsh effect on the environment and on the workers’ health as well. On the contrary, organic cotton is untreated and chemical-free. It is creamy-soft and gets even softer with each wash. By choosing organic, you don’t only give your skin the purest cotton, but also support sustainable cotton farming.

GREENWASHING COTTON: when the brand claim natural or even organic without showing the certification seal, it has something to hide. To be truly organic the brand and the products need to adhere to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON:

Do you know when cotton is organic? When the item displays the  "GOTS" - Global Organic Textile Standard - logo on the merchandise. 

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.  The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading, and distribution of all textiles made from at least 70% certified organic natural fibers.  The aim of the standard is to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labeling.

DYES:Socks here are all low-impact dyes, meaning they are made with less water, less heat, no formaldehyde, no carcinogens or mutagens versus their conventional socks. They meet the stringent dyeing standards in the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), meaning they are the most environmental dyes available!
