How does the small act of buying certified organic cotton actually make a difference in this huge world?

1)Impact on People

Certified Organic Cotton is cotton is grown in fields which have been free of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers for at least 3 years. This makes the water run-off cleaner for all of us!
Certified organic clothes are designed and manufactured according to strict ecological and social standards such as, GOTS certified organic which require Chemical-free cotton fields, and that all dyes and prints are free from toxic chemicals and comply with GOTS standards. DUSG? not only complies with the GOTS norms but is also the Worlds 1st Clothing Brand to get Carbon Footprint Mark  by SGS.


2) Impact on Mother Earth

Organic Cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.

3) Impact on your Family

Organic cotton is free from harmful chemical residues and the result is a cotton fiber that is less likely to trigger allergies. The fabric is not only pure but very soft and luxurious. Children with allergies and eczema seem to respond well to organic cotton clothing. Organic items are cleaner, softer, higher quality, and the stitching is often much better. They last, so you can pass them on.

Better for your child, better value for you.

Lastly get educated… and educate those around you!

Organic sustainable fashion isn’t a political idea – it is an idea to help our planet continue to thrive, something I think we can all agree is important. I know I want the world to be as beautiful for my children (and my grandchildren!) as it was for me… and to me, sustainable fashion helps that.

Simple things we do everyday can make a difference in the world.

DID U KNOW? – FASHION + ENVIRONMENT

 – The fashion industry is the second largest user of water in the world. Pretty scary when there are almost 1 billion people in the world with no safe drinking water source.

 – Over 90 million items (or 2 million tones ) of clothing end up in land fill sites globally each year. (BBC – 2009)

 – 150 grams of pesticides and other agricultural chemicals are used to produce the cotton for just one t-shirt.

 – Sheep, alpaca, llamas and other wool-bearing animals contribute to the production of methane gas, a major greenhouse      gas.

–  60% of the greenhouse gases generated over the life of a simple tee shirt come from the typical 25 washings and machine    dryings. The carbon emissions created to generate the electricity used to wash clothing in warm temperature water and        warm temperature tumble dryers exceeds the carbon emissions created during the growing, manufacturing and shipping    of clothing.


So are we doomed? NO! We love fashion as much as you do! That is why we have Organic clothing which is soft to the skin and is made without the use of chemicals | pesticides.

Organic cotton is usually rain-fed, not irrigated, so it uses a lot less water. Organic cotton, as you probably know, is grown without the use of pesticides and insecticides. How is this done? Farmers use composted manures and cover-crops to replace synthetic fertilizers. Innovative weeding strategies are used instead of herbicides. Beneficial insects and trap-crops are used to control pests. Nature’s frost and water inducement prepare plants for harvest, instead of using toxic defoliants. We like organic cotton.

We encourage you to DETOX your wardrobe and start small make a commitment to buy at least one tee this festive season for you | your loved ones and see the difference you make to mother nature…..

Small steps at a time, is what we believe in ….. shop at www.douspeakgreen.in and challenge your boundaries.
