Our GOTS-certified organic cotton pieces are ecological and socially responsible, aiming to do more for our world and the next generation. Working in harmony with mother nature, farmers make the most out of the world's natural systems and cycles to safely and more sustainably grow their crops. Non-organic production uses synthetic chemicals like nitrogen fertilisers and artificial pesticides which contribute to climate change and cause damage to local ecosystems and the health of local communities.
By working together with our Spanish ateliers and GOTS-certified suppliers, La Coqueta is proud to offer clients and their families a range of garments with ecological and social responsibilities that aim to do better for our world, and the next generation.
Organic cotton is a more sustainable choice because:
1. Fights climate change
Organic cotton farmers use natural methods to grow their crops, eliminating the use of fossil-fuel-based fertilisers, and working with nature to create healthy soils that store carbon and help combat climate change.
2. Saves and protects our precious water
The healthy soil works like a sponge, soaking up water during floods and holding it for longer during droughts. Rivers, lakes and drinking water is also kept cleaner, as hazardous synthetic pesticides are banned in organic farming.
3. Helps farmers feed their families
Organic farmers grow other crops alongside cotton, keeping a balanced system on their farms which helps to keep soil healthy, protecting the topsoil and encouraging the wildlife ecosystem. Through organic farming, crops can provide families and their communities with stable access to a more diverse food source and an avenue for income.
4. Gives control to farmers
Organic farmers save their seeds each year, meaning they have full autonomy over their crops. Genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned in organic farming, so farmers are not reliant on GM companies or the prices they set for farming.
5. Eliminates hazardous pesticides
Conventional cotton alone is responsible for 16% of all insecticides sold worldwide. Organic farmers use natural methods like crop rotation to control pests and diseases, as hazardous synthetic pesticides used in non-organic farming can damage ecosystems, poison water sources and also endanger workers who can’t always afford vital safety equipment.
