In this small article, we want to show you on how products made of 100% certified organic cotton slow climate change. Certified organic farmers contribute to the reduction of:

  1. Green House Emissions as they do not use pesticides and fertiliser intensive crops. The manufacture of pesticides themselves involves the burning of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Without synthetic pesticides, fertilisers or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), certified organic farming promotes an ecological balance through the conservation of resources and the protection of our fragile biodiversity.
  2. Carbon emissions as organic farming helps not only maintain but also increase the amount of carbon held in the ground by using biological diversity of organically farmed soil. This results in it being up to 25% more effective at storing carbon.
  3. Water consumption by 90%, by harvesting rainwater, to water their crops,selecting crop varieties that are drought resistant and increasing the amount of organic matter in their soil.
  4. Water pollution as organic farming protects the life of our waterways by not leaching nitrates and toxic chemicals into our waterways (rivers and sea waters).
  5. Energy consumption as organic farmers conserve energy and can thus help slow global warming.
  6. Plastic waste - the challenge here is about what is left behind once you have used your period products…Plastic takes at least 450 years to decompose…. and in a woman’s lifetime she uses on average 11.000 single-use plastic menstrual products! The impact of plastic on our planet is huge, but we can do something: Our period products leave behind zero plastic waste. Plastic is not needed in our menstrual products….PERIOD.
