Better Cotton Iniative

Better Cotton is an initiative dedicated to the sustainable management of cotton. Their mission is to help cotton communities thrive while protecting and restoring the environment.

In 2005, as part of a round-table initiative convened by WWF, a group of visionary organisations came together to make sure cotton had a sustainable future. Initial support came from organisations such as adidas, Gap Inc., H&M, ICCO Cooperation, IKEA, International Federation of Agricultural Producers (IFAP), International Finance Corporation (IFC), Organic Exchange, Oxfam, Pesticide Action Network (PAN) UK and WWF.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

GOTS addresses the environmental and social processing stage of making organic apparel and textile products. All our organic cotton fabrics are certified through GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certification.

GOTS is the global leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental and social criteria along with the entire organic textiles supply chain. Worldwide organic textile requirements ensure the organic status of textiles from start to finish which means the products use raw materials that are collected using environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing criteria all the way to labeling. GOTS certified products deliver peace of mind to the consumer by providing credible assurance. (Learn more http://www.global-standard.org/).

Oeko-Tex Harmful Substance

Oeko-tex certified dyes are used on all our products. This means that our fabrics have been tested to ensure that they have no traces of harmful chemicals.

Fairtrade

Fairtrade promotes better working conditions and trade opportunities for workers and farmers. WEAR ORGANIC is committed to following ethical principles in all aspects of the production cycle be it farmers or the workers.

Clothing is one of the most consumed consumer product on the market after food. The apparel manufacturing cycle goes through a variety of processes with the raw material making a long journey to the finished product and finally the consumer. This requires care and attention as well as the labour of numerous hands. This also means that workers in the clothing manufacturing industry are exposed to several negative aspects throughout their working life. Providing better working conditions and livelihood are one of our main priorities at WEAR ORGANIC.
