Organic Cotton Reusable Make-up Pads (Pack of 8)

 

In Stock

Description

Introducing the first Soil Association certified 100% organic cotton reusable make-up cleansing pads.
 
No more plastic wrapped, throwaway pads or synthetic, chemical-soaked wipes, just pure organic cotton.

We've packed 8 super soft, brushed organic cotton rounds into an organic cotton drawstring bag that can conveniently be machine washed for ease of use and prevent the pads going astray in the washing machine!

They are designed to be a little bigger (and thicker!) so you can cleanse with one side and apply toner with the other.

Made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton under fair and safe working conditions.

They should last a long time with careful use, but when they get to the end of their life, organic cotton is fully biodegradable so you can just add them to your compost heap!

10.5cm diameter.

Soil Association license number X8731

About Organic Cotton

Conventional cotton production uses around 11,000 litres of water for every kilogram of cotton produced. As it takes around 450g of cotton to make the average t-shirt that's a highly water-intensive 5000 litres per garment!

Cotton is grown on 4% of the world's arable soil. Annually 24% of all insecticides, and 11% of all pesticides used in the world are used on just one crop: cotton. It is estimated that less than 10% of the chemicals applied to cotton fields are actually doing their jobs. The rest goes into the air, soil, and water around the fields, harming or killing wildlife and farm workers, and severely affecting the ecology of the surrounding areas.

3,000,000 people suffer the effects of pesticides poisoning each year, 20,000 subsequently die.

Cotton pesticides can enter our food chain through processed foods (from salad dressings to margarine and biscuits) that contain cottonseed oil, and through meat and dairy products since cows are often fed cottonseed meal.

Over 45% of all conventional cotton grown in the US is genetically engineered.

Conventional cotton is bad for our health, damaging to the workers who produce it, and destructive to the environment.

Over 8,000 synthetic chemicals are routinely used at some stage during a conventional garments' production.

5 reasons to give organic cotton a go!

Eliminates hazardous pesticides

Gives power to farmers not GM companies

Helps farmers feed their families and local community

Saves precious water and combats climate change

Protects you and your family's skin from harmful chemicals

Greenfibres has been selling eco goods and garments for over 15 years. We specialise in offering customers the most natural clothing and bedding, which protects the producers, it protects the environment, it even protects yourself as conventional cotton can have many thousands of chemical residues on them which will soak into your skin and can cause allergies.

If you want to make a positive change, and support a better future, then start with small changes in making your lifestyle a little bit healthier by switching to organic cotton. It's strong, long lasting and will biodegrade once you've finished using it, so you can feel really good about what you wear.

Organic certification sets very strict social and economic conditions for farmers and buyers which gives the growers a fair wage, safe working conditions and a good price for their produce from buyers. This helps to reduce poverty within a farming community and protects against child labour and inhumane treatment.

Organic cotton is grown and produced without the use of toxic chemicals which means that the health and safety of the growing communities and the risk to the environment is much less compared to conventional cotton.

Organic cotton does not get treated with any chemicals when being woven into fabric and does not get treated with toxic finishing chemicals such as formaldehyde which is used as a fire retardant or easy-iron finish on the garments.

Organic cotton does not allow the use of any genetically modified seeds which helps to protect natural biodiversity and ecology.
