BENDITO DEL PERÚ
- Ground Floor
YES, WE GROW OUR COTTON IN PERU AND WE MAKE OUR SHIRTS THERE TOO.
We use Organic Cotton to create products in a way that reduces water and toxic chemical use. This improves life conditions for Peruvian Farmers and brings the opportunity to have a formal job.
Unlike conventional cotton, organic cotton is grown in soil free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and defoliants.
The organic standards do not allow the use of GMOS. Peru has a ban on GMO seeds, which reduces the risk of contamination that exists in other cotton producing countries. Furthermore, the fact that our cotton is handpicked is a benefit, as it reduces the environmental impact and improves the quality of the product.
Our TSHIRTS are GOTs Certified, meaning safe working conditions, no discrimination and no child labour.
