Organic cotton – simply the best for the environment and people!
Worldwide, large quantities of fertilizers and pesticides are used in the cultivation of ordinary cotton. Cotton cultivation accounts for about 25% of global insecticide use and 10% of pesticide use, although it accounts for only 4% of all arable land. For each T-shirt, for example, about 150 grams of poison lands in cotton fields.
Excessive use of chemicals reduces soil fertility and pests become more resistant. Controlled organic farming prohibits the use of toxic and non-degradable chemical synthetic pesticides and fertilizers so that soil and groundwater are not polluted.
The use of genetically modified organisms is also prohibited. People working in textile factories are also exposed to toxins from normal cotton production on a daily basis. That's why Lotuscrafts has resisted such dirty practices and their products boast GOTS certificate (Global Organic Textile Standard).
What is GOTS?
GOTS covers the entire production chain, from extracting raw materials from fields of organic cotton to packaging. At all stages, they take into account environmentally friendly processes, materials and social standards.
Also included are social standards from the International Labor Organization - ensuring fair wages, protection at work and freedom of association, protection against toxic chemicals, a ban on forced labor, child labor, harassment and discrimination.
GOST includes some additional "benefits" for the people involved in the process - for example: they carry out evacuation exercises in case of fire ... It is also involved in the processes of obtaining fiber from controlled animal organic livestock - wool.
