COTTON – 100% ORGANIC

NO GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEEDS

NO SYNTHETICAL PESTICIDES AND FERTILIZERS

NO CHEMICALS

The cotton used in our SHIRTS FOR LIFE garments is 100% from controlled, biological cultivation, and it is adjusting to highest social and ecological standards. Counter to conventional cotton farming the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers as well as genetically modified seeds is prohibited.

The cultivation of organic cotton, however, requires natural fertilizers and pesticides. The cotton is picked by hand; the use of defoliants is not allowed.

In the subsequent stages of processing, like washing and dyeing, non-degradable and genotype-altering chemicals are also prohibited.

Social standards and fair working conditions in the processing of organic cotton are also an important part of sustainability and are closely monitored. They are certified by the GOTS label, which most of our products carry.
