kodama apparel’s organic cotton t shirts
The benefits of organic cotton.
There are different certifications and levels of defining what’s organic.
Organisations like Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), sets a high standard for organic fibres, including ecology and social criteria.
Under GOTS, organic production is based on a farming system that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides and fertiliser and excludes genetic modification.
The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of all textiles made from at least 70% certified organic natural fibres.
about the organic cotton t-shirts and hoodies we use
We want to build awareness for our future generations and strive for sustainable lifestyle by reducing environmental impacts.
So when it came to choosing blank t-shirts and hoodies to print our designs, we wanted them to be 100% organic cotton that were sustainably made.
They are manufactured in a region of India that receives up to 95% of its water from the monsoon rainfall.
This is critical because the monsoon rain reduces the need for large scale irrigation – normally associated with conventional cotton farming.
These organic cottons are grown by low impact organic farming by using clean renewable energy generated by wind turbines. 30 turbines are dedicated for primary energy source to the entire production process from spinning the yarn to finishing the garments.
EarthPositive t shirts are also audited by FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION, which promotes fair labour conditions in the clothing industry and free of child labour. The factory has, by signing up to the FWF, agreed to an 8 point Code of Conduct.
Graphic artworks are designed and applied locally in Melbourne. Visit our online store to see more of our organic cotton basics.
