Cotton is the most widely grown crop in the world & also happens to be one of the most chemical dependent. This, in turn, changes the biological balance of the area impacting the air, soil, water & health of the cotton farmers. At Almo, we are cognizant of this impact & therefore we have chosen a more sustainable alternative in the form of GOTS approved Organic Cotton.
Organic Cotton is cultivated using techniques which keep the environment first. The aim is to maintain & replenish soil fertility, reduce the consumption of water and to minimize the use of fertilizers & pesticides while creating fibre which is softer & richer than conventional cotton. Therefore, choosing Organic Cotton over regular cotton helps in –
- Reducing Environmental Footprint
- Promoting healthy livelihood of farmers
- Ensuring a safer future
Certified by Global Organic Textile Standard
Organic Cotton used by Almo is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which ensures organic status of textiles from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally & socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling, in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
