Very toxic pesticides, fertilisers and herbicides are used in the farming of conventional cotton, amounting to 25% of global pesticide consumption. These not only cause considerable damage to farming communities and the environment, but also leave residues on the finished product. All Simply Gentle Organic products are 100% organic.
The Fair Trade certified organic cotton comes from small village farming small holders in Tanzania, East Africa. The Tanzanian farmers are given a guaranteed market for their organic cotton at a premium price with payment in cash. Cotton is the second most important source of foreign exchange for the country after coffee.
