Simply Gentle Organics has a huge positive impact on our planet, supporting the growth and production or organic cotton in up to 20 countries worldwide.
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Smarter production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and hazardous pesticides and fertilisers, and builds a more sustainable agriculture. Growing organic cotton requires far less water and energy to grow than conventional cotton, what this means is water pollution is reduced by up to 98% and CO2 emissions is cut by up to 94%. This has a great impact on local areas, improving welfare of towns, farmers, workers, wildlife on eco-systems.
Conventional cotton is farmed using around 25% of the world’s insecticides, that’s more than any other crop in the world, and 10% of the world’s pesticides; a crazy amount just for one crop.
All these chemicals can be deadly. Pesticides poison farmers and factory workers have to breathe in their fume’s day in, day out during the manufacturing process. Each year up to 20,000 deaths are caused by pesticide poisoning in developing countries and a further 10,000 farmers in the US die from cancers related to these dangerous chemicals.
These chemicals are washed off in heavy rain, which then flows into rivers, waterways and lakes, poisoning local wildlife. According to the US fish and Wildlife Service, pesticides kill at least 67 million birds annually just in the US alone.
Pesticide are being found in our food, farm animals, and even breast milk. There is not just a great concern that these chemicals are lead causes of thousands of cases of cancer in adults daily, but they are especially harmful to young children as it increases the chances of developing debilitating neuro-development effects.
Still, less than 1% of cotton is grown organically and it will remain so unless more people and brands make the change to a happier, healthier and a more sustainable source of cotton materials.
For every Greener Beauty customer order we plant one tree. This is part of our ongoing effort to lower our carbon footprint and build a better world. We work with an American Charity called Eden Reforestation who plant trees globally where they are most needed. They hire, train and employ local people at a fair wage who then plant trees native to their land and protect the seedlings and eventually the forests. As a result of their careful nurturing they have an 80% seedling survival rate. This gives the local people a consistent income enabling them to provide for their families, and as the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests emerge and the negative effects of deforestation disappear. Since Eden Reforestation began over 250 million trees have been planted around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique. To further negate the carbon footprint of Greener Beauty HQ we also plant 15 trees a month per member of staff. Always ethical. Always vegan. Always Greener Beauty.
