The Cotton we use at Ecobasic to make our non-printed reusable make-up remover pads and Muslin cloths is from the Organic Textile Company.
A bit about them......
Ann and Phil began the Organic Textile Company around 2005, although they have been selling fabric for over thirty years.
Nearly all our fabrics are made directly for them and to their specification .
They use GOTS certified mills in India and Turkey. The bamboo (closed loop manufacturing system) comes from China, and in India the main partner is Genesh in Kerala.
Around fifteen years ago they became aware of the damage done to people in third world countries who grow cotton and have to rely on pesticides. Thousands die each year. They live miserable lives, tied to poverty, bound to a system that supports agro chemical suppliers. Most of these farmers have 4 or 5 acres. By allowing them to farm organically, they and their families can live a more prosperous and healthy life that allows crop rotation and non-reliance on pesticide and fertiliser sellers.
Organic means that the cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides, using pheromone traps, crop rotation, hand picking of bugs and natural repellents.
This allows farmers to grow food and keep animals instead of being reliant on costly chemicals and fertilizers. They receive more for their crop and the input costs are lower and the fabrics will be pesticide free.
They have a small charity called 'Loom.' This is not a registered charity. They send small amounts of money to help with scholarships, health issues or improvements to buildings for the weavers. They also pay a little over the odds for the fabric to allow Genesh to reimburse the weavers at a higher rate than would be normal for weavers.
