GOTS or the Global Organic Textile Standard are a world leader in certifying organic fabrics from farm to factory. As an organisation, GOTS play a vital role in the production and transparency of the organic textiles supply chain. Why is organic cotton so important to our planet and to South West Coast? When we decided to stock a range of reusable produce bags, we didn’t just want to solve the problem consumers were currently facing: using a single use, flimsy plastic bag typically found in abundance in the fruit and veg section of all supermarkets, but we wanted to ensure that the fabric used to make these bags were : Organically farmed No harm to the cotton farmer or local ecology Traceable and certifiably organic Organic farming actively benefits the environment which is why GOTS are so important to us. Firstly the cotton farmers are not exposed to chemicals that are harmful to their health. Local eco-systems aren’t subjected or exposed to unnatural practices either as solutions are put in place that respect farmers and the local eco systems. The Global Organic Textile Standard will only ever give their certification to farms that are committed to the GOTS standards. We source all our organic cotton bags from the lovely Lowri at Ingreens who does her utmost to keep the supply chain as short and ethical as possible. These bags are made of GOTS-certified organic cotton. The string is natural unbleached organic cotton, with no dye. Long-lasting, washable and a reusable alternative to disposable plastic bags or Tupperware containers. GOTS-certified, this ensures that the cotton has been organically grown and that fabrics have been treated in an eco-friendly way. How to hand wash - turn them inside out and soak in cold water to help prevent stains. Hand wash in your sink with a little washing up liquid, then a quick rinse under the tap. Line dry. For a deeper clean, soak the bag for a few hours in vinegar and water(apple cider or white vinegar) 1 part vinegar to two parts water.
