The Fabric
- - -
1) GE free: cotton plants are cross pollinated but no lab engineering is allowed. 2) Processed to a high environmental standard: a/we use peroxide bleaches as opposed to chlorine which is harmful to the environment. b/all water used in processing is treated before being released into waterways. c/in a general covering statement- 'no toxic substances are used in the final processing of this fabric'. 3) More bio-degradable than synthetic fibre fabrics. 4) From a natural source ie a cotton plant as opposed to synthetics which are mainly produced from oil which is a resource that is becoming depleted.

Production
- - -
No cotton is grown in New Zealand, so yarns are imported and then processed into fabric. It is at this processing stage that the most harm could be done to the environment. The fact that this whole processing stage is done locally, here in New Zealand, means we have control over this potentially harmful stage.

Global Pollution

Some other countries who are producing much more fabric than New Zealand ever could, do not show the same concern about our environment. So by marketing the 'green cotton' concept successfully, you are protecting your city, your country and the world. Spread the word.
