Shipping calculated at checkout.
Called 'Simply Gentle Organic' is the first organic cotton wool produced by a UK company. More than four years has been spent sourcing the raw cotton and meeting rigorous purity standards at every stage. It is accredited by the Soil Association and meets SA8000 ethical trading and ISO 14001 international environmental standards. Approximately 5% of the product purchase price will be used to help smallholding farmers in Tanzania, East Africa, the source of the organic cotton. Instead of using toxic chemicals to control pests, they use natural methods. For example, planting Sunflowers by the Cotton crop attracts up to ten times more pest-eating Ants than would be found on a conventional plot. A fair economic deal is given to the family Cotton farmers, protecting them from the health risks of artificial chemicals and helping to stop the pollution of rivers and degradation of land through over intensive cultivation. Every product sold will also provide extra money for the local villagers.
