The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world, and working conditions are infamous, both in the cotton fields and at the factories.
Conventional cotton farming ruins the environment and has for the last 30 years been a complete nightmare for millions of farmers.
The short version is that global chemical companies have made poor farmers in developing countries dependent on their GMO-cotton, chemical fertilisers and pesticides. In the end all profit goes to the big companies while the farmers work extremely hard for nothing. They end up with a polluted, sterile environment and can no longer support their families.
Organic cotton is about going back to how it used to be, farming cotton in a sustainable way, in touch with nature. What you pay for the cotton ends up in a farmer’s household, paying for food and school, instead of dividends to greedy shareholders. Simply, the way it should be.
Fairtrade are working for farmers’ rights in developing countries. They help them get organised and make sure they are guaranteed a minimum price for their crop. On top of that Fairtrade premiums are given to villages for investments in schools, infrastructure and other social improvements. For every Fairtrade cotton garment you purchase you help making the life better for our farmers out there.
