Many people consider cotton to be one of the purest fibres on earth. In fact, traditional chemical cotton cultivation inflicts a heavy toll on the environment. Good news is there are now some 50 countries commercially farming cotton organically including India, Turkey, USA, Australia, Peru and China amongst others.
Organic farming means using ancient cotton farming knowledge combined with modern technology to create a sustainable and healthy crop. Farmers replace chemical use with methods approved by organic certifying bodies such as SKAL (Holland), BFA Australia, AGRECO (Germany) & IMO China.
These certified methods minimise the impact on the soil and water supplies and preserve the Earth for future generations. These methods include things like:
? Eliminating the use of synthetic fertilizers and using animal manures instead
? Eliminating the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides from every step of the farming process and using cow urine as an insecticide which is harmless to the environment.
? Hand weeding
? Introducing good bugs to eat up the bad ones
? Organic cotton farming uses 50% less water than chemical farming
? Allowing the plant to defoliate naturally whilst the farmers have a holiday instead of using nasty chemical defoliants
? Letting the soil recover naturally after harvest
The gorgeous toys are machine washable at 40?.
Here are a few tips though:
- Take their bows off first and wash separately.
- When they come out of the machine they will feel heavy and stiff as the cellulose fibre is wet, don?t worry this is normal and they will soften up as they dry
- Put somewhere out of direct heat or sunlight to dry
- Make sure they are thoroughly dry before popping back to bed with you
- Don?t worry you won?t be the first parent to have bought a second back up toy to avoid sleepless nights because one is in the wash or has gone walkabouts, please call us for any sleepless replacement emergency, we understand!
