Organic cotton for Africa shirts
All of our cotton shirts are made out of organic cotton (we sometimes even add recycled organic cotton). Organic cotton means that pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers and GMO seeds are not used when growing crops.
Farmers use natural fertilizers and natural pest control instead. They also practice crop rotation which means they also grow soybeans, wheat or other crops to increase nutrients in the soil.
Organic cotton used for our shirts has GOTS Certificate and comes from organic farmers in Tanzania, India or Türkiye.
In most cases, organic cotton is grown by small farmers. Organic farming decreases their dependency to big agrochemical corporations.
Last but not least, growing organic cotton emits less CO2 and uses less water.
