Taking care of the soil and the tiny critters
Every North T-shirt and Sweat is made from 100% Organic cotton, grown on farms without the use of any toxic and persistent pesticides or fertilizers. Using organic cotton to replace synthetic materials in our apparel range helps us to minimize our effect on Mother Nature.
Organic cotton farms start by looking after the world beneath our feet - taking care of the soil and the tiny critters that help keep the earth healthy. Both organic and inorganic cotton use equal amounts of water yet organic cotton does not leave the water full of harmful toxins.
“Conventional production practices for cotton involve the application of substantial fertilizers and pesticides. Pesticides threaten the quality of soil and water, as well as the health of biodiversity in and downstream from the fields” - WWF.
When farmers look after their soil and use more environmentally friendly agricultural systems, they are not only able to produce healthier and more resilient crops, but also to keep our waters free of harmful toxins.
