Why we only use 100% Certified cotton (GOTS certified)

Posted on April 12, 2018 by Wholesale HoneyBee Wraps | 0 Comments

At HoneyBee Wrap we only use the best ingredients to make our beeswax food wrap and that means we only use 100%certified cotton (GOTs certified).

This means the cotton is grown without the use of chemical and pesticide.

Did you know that cotton is the most widely grown crops in the world, growing conventional cotton is also one of the most chemical-­intensive?

Gots Certified Organic Cotton is grown in soil that has been chemical free for a minimum of three years and the process of producing Organic Cotton is toxin free from field to factory.

Organic cotton that is not GOTs certified, are not certified because they have been contaminated through the use of toxic dyes and chemicals. Read more about GOTs Global Organic Textile Standards). here

More than 25% of pesticides used in farming are used on cotton alone, and they include highly toxic insecticides and carcinogens.Social and Ethical

Not only does GOTS relate to the quality of the fabric (ensuing compliance with standards such as no formaldehyde, no pesticides, no chlorine bleach), it also regulates ethical social standards – such as, no child labour, no animal cruelty, workers are paid a fair wage and have fair working condition – these and other key principles must be met by processors and manufacturers.  

Environmentally Friendly

GOTS certified Organic Cotton is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable! Did you know that up to 250ml (1 cup) of chemicals are typically used to produce just one single (non-organic) cotton t-shirt?

As most cotton farmers are located near river catchments, the drainage and run-off into the rivers is having a significant impact on the eco-systems, as well as contaminating drinking water.

All of these facts makes HoneyBee Wrap 100% compostable, so after the 1 year use date you can disposed of your wraps in your compostable bin or your worm farm.
