Why do we choose Organic Cotton at Spoilt Rotten?

Did you know that traditional Cotton is the second most pesticide-laden crop in the world? Five of the top nine pesticides used on cotton in the U.S. (cyanide, dicofol, naled, propargite and trifluralin) are well known as dangerous chemicals. Organic Cotton on the other hand is grown in certified pesticide-free and hericide-free soil using organic farming methods, covered in the Global Organic Textiles Standard. 

A babies skin is 5 times thinner than our own, allowing toxins to penetrate much more easily. With organic cotton you can be sure that during production no harmful chemicals were used which also makes it less likely to trigger allergies.

Organic Cotton is also softer, for your babies skin, as the fibres have not been damaged by the chemicals.The print on the front of the garments are also non-harmful and no chemicals are used. They are all individually printed to order so you can be sure of a high quality standard.

Under GOTS, only garments with 95% or more organic fibres can be labelled as 'organic'. Our babygrows and baby tees at Spoilt Rotten have 100% organic cotton fibres.

Organic Standards

Organic standards are the rules and regulations that define how an organic product must be made. Organic standards for food are laid down in European Union (EU) law. Anything labelled 'organic' that is for human consumption must meet these standards as a minimum. The standards cover all aspects of food production, from animal welfare and wildlife conservation, to food processing, to packaging.

Organic standards ensure that you can be certain that you are buying a genuine organic product that has been produced in line with our principles. Imported organic foods must have been produced and inspected to equivalent standards. There must also be full traceability of organic ingredients back to the farmer.

There a number of different certification bodies in the UK which carry out the inspections and paperwork to ensure that the standards are being met. The Soil Association is one of only a very few of these bodies that have chosen to set standards that are higher than the EU minimum in several areas such as GM, animal welfare and nature conservation. We have also developed standards for areas not covered by government or EU regulations. These include fish farming, textiles and health and beauty care products.

Soil Association

Organic clothes and textiles have become increasingly popular in the last decade. If you're seeking environmentally friendly clothing, then choose organic clothing - textiles are certified as organic it means that both the production of the fibre on the farm, and the processing of this fibre into textiles has met organic standards and been checked at every step of the processing supply chain for social and environmental responsibility.

The Soil Association certifies to the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) – the international gold standard for organic textiles. The whole supply chain from field through manufacture to final product must be certified, and we check against environmental and social standards.

There are several reasons why organic textiles are kinder, cleaner and better:

Organic fibres are grown without the use of harmful pesticides or genetically modified organisms so promote a healthier farm and environment. We don’t allow harmful manufacturing chemicals in organic textile production, so its better for local wildlife, animals and people Social conditions are high in organic textile factories, and organic cotton production can help farmers find a way out of poverty. Animal welfare is at the heart of organic systems, so is better for animals growing our fibres Our organic textiles don’t contain allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic chemicals.

Our factory has adopted a Zero Tolerance policy with regard to the following minimum social responsibility criteria:

- No use of child labour

- No use of forced labour

- Safe and healthy working conditions

- Legal labour contracts

- Payment of living wage

- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining

- No discrimination against employees

- No excessive hours of work

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)

The aim of these standards is to define requirements to ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.

Approved are natural fibres that are certified organic and fibres from conversion period certified according to recognised international or national standards and certified by any IFOAM accredited or internationally recognised (according to ISO 65) certifier.

The following social criteria currently apply to the textile processing level only. As far as a practical quality assurance system for the farm level will be in place, these social criteria also apply for the farm level.

- Employment is freely chosen
- There is no forced or bonded labour
- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected
- Working conditions are safe and hygienic
- Child labour must not be used
- Living wages
- Working hours are not excessive
- No discrimination is practised
- Regular employment is provided
- Harsh or inhumane treatment is prohibited

Low Carbon Footprint

Our men’s and women’s t-shirts are Earthpositive, 100% organic with 90% Reduced CO2
The carbon footprint has been calculated in accordance with BSI PAS2050 methodology, and certified by the Carbon Trust.

The 90% reduction has been achieved by a combination of low-impact organic farming, efficiency in manufacturing and transportation, and the use of renewable energy instead of the fossil fuel based grid electricity.

It has been calculated that a single EarthPositive T-shirt saves around 7 kilograms of CO2, whereas a hooded sweatshirt saves up to 28 kgs of greenhouse gases.

These are actual reductions achieved in the manufacturing, without any carbon offsetting.
