Organic school uniforms have become popular ever since the rapid growth of the organic cotton industry. Our school uniforms are made from organic cotton, this means that no chemicals are used during the growing process. The difference is astonishing and since our children wear them all day long, this is a very important factor.
Organic is not just a buzzword. Organic is a lifestyle. Long-term commitments by brands and retailers to use organic cotton are driving the development of a new global market. Key changes in the organic cotton market in recent years demonstrate that organic is not just a trend, it is the way of the future. Everywhere you look organic cotton is the fabric of choice. Today, key sectors of the economy such as health, hospitality, and educational industries are choosing organic.
Currently, synthetic fabrics contribute to a number of issues that people have come to realize organic is the better way. Often times, conventional fabrics are not breathable or sweat absorbent. They tend to be coarse and not pleasant to the touch. Furthermore, these fabrics are treated with harmful chemicals that can worsen or, cause irritable skin conditions. This is why we believe it’s particularly vital for kids to wear uniforms made from chemical-free and organically grown materials.
Why Organic Cotton For School Uniforms?
Cotton is widely recognized as the best natural cloth. What people are commonly unaware of is the fact that the standard production of cotton is the highest in chemically-intensive farming operations within the world.
Conventional cotton uses about 25% of the world’s pesticides including herbicides, and defoliants. Roughly it takes 5.5 ounces of chemicals (pesticides and fertilizers) to grow enough cotton for only one T-shirt!
Our organic cotton is free from artificial poisons this prevents the earth’s waterways from getting contaminated with pesticides, bleach, artificial dyes, and harmful chemicals. Organic cotton is softer than standard cotton and is 100% hypoallergenic.
The garments we produce have a longer lifespan than conventional cotton products, due to the fact that the chemicals used in the growing and dying process break the fibers down resulting in a weaker garment that most people associate with ill-fitting or tearing.
Conventional cotton production, with its in-depth use of artificial fertilizers and soil additives, wreaks serious havoc on the soil, water, and air of farming communities. These chemicals spill into local water supplies, contaminate the soil in farms and pose long-term health threats to people and animals.
At Organic Apparel, we use the traditional methods of manufacturing cotton such as spinning, knitting, dyeing, printing, and stitching. They are conducted with adherence to the strict guidelines set forth by Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), and the international gold customary for organic textiles.
The complete production cycle of the product is certified organic and checked for environmental and social standards. GOTS was developed by leading consumer regulators to outline worldwide recognized needs that guarantee organic standing of textiles, from the harvest of the raw materials, production, up to labeling for credible assurance to the buyer.
