WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ORGANIC COTTON?
Organic cotton is grown using organic means without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and insecticides, therefore helping to improve the quality of the land, prevent water contamination, and conserve biodiversity.
People with allergies and chemical sensitivity especially benefit from organic cotton clothing, as conventional cotton may retain harmful toxic residues. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, organic cotton will just feel better against your skin and smell better.
WHY ALL YOUR SOCKS ARE NOT 100% ORGANIC COTTON?
We're committed to using organic cotton for all our socks. For some of our socks with different designs that need a little bit more stretch than others, we blend our organic cotton with small amounts of elastane to give our socks the perfect amount of stretch for perfect comfort. We proudly display fabric content in the product details for every Love Sock on our product page.
WHAT IS GOTS?
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the world’s leading organic textile processing standard. It ensures that textiles are truly organic at every stage of production - from ginning, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling of the final product. GOTS makes sure that:
Inputs in processing such as dyes and inks comply with strict biodegradability and toxicity requirements.
Factories have functioning waste water treatment plants to protect local ecosystems and water supplies.
Products do not contain any allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic chemical residues.
Core International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions must be met throughout manufacture and a social compliance management system must be set up.
GOTS certifies thousands of textile businesses around the world and is fast becoming the accepted standard for truly organic textiles. In fact in the USA, where textile products labeled as ‘organic’ are legally required to be certified organic from production to processing, GOTS is an officially recognized standard.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW LOVE SOCKS?
We recommend a cold water wash and a hang dry. However, Love Socks can all be safely washed in warm water and tumble dried.
