Bewust voor mens, dier en milieu. Dat is in al onze kleding de standaard. Bij ons vind je dus geen extra organic lijnen ter aanvulling. Voor de Aredee Organic ’22 Polo lijn is dan ook 100% biologisch katoen gebruikt.
Zo gaat niet alleen jouw look erop vooruit, maar je houdt ook nog rekening met het milieu. De stof voelt extreem zacht aan en zit als gegoten.
The organic cotton we use is grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
Organic cotton farming uses natural methods, such as crop rotation, which not only benefit soils, wildlife and the environment, but also create biodiversity and promote good health and quality of life for farmers and their communities.
Growing organic cotton ensures that no chemical insecticides, fertilizers or pesticides flow into the soil or into adjacent rivers, lakes or seas. The water used for organic farming is not wasted water, as it is reused over and over and can return to the source without causing any damage. The overall positive impact on water, animals and biodiversity means that the well-being and livelihoods of cotton farmers and their communities are respected and protected.
Benefits Organic Cotton
Organic cotton prevents any form of pesticide poisoning, which can lead to multiple health problems. According to the UN, 200,000 people die each year from toxic exposure to pesticides. Although the yield of organic cotton may be lower than that of conventional cotton, farmers’ incomes do not decrease as their overall costs are reduced.
Crop rotation and intercropping also benefit farmers as it allows them to further supplement their food and income. Organic cotton farmers in India use traditional, natural fertilizers, such as cow dung, to keep the soil rich in nutrients. Organic cotton is even used as currency or to barter for food.
