Cotton is everyone’s go-to fabric. It’s premier, easy to grow and in great demand. But do you know its also the dirtiest crop there is?
To meet the demand, farmers across India are wreaking havoc on their soil, using 24% insecticide and 11% pesticide, despite less than 10% of it actually helping. And in the bargain, 77 million agricultural workers suffer from pesticide poisoning every year.
Beyond this, cotton then goes to manufacturing plants where it’s treated with over 8000 chemicals before finally making its way to your child’s wardrobe and sometimes leaving traces of toxic chemicals on their skin!
Enter organic cotton. Grown with natural techniques like crop rotation, organic fertilizers and beneficial insects, organic cotton helps maintain soil health. It also uses rainwater and reduces the emission of greenhouse gas emissions, helping combat climate change.
At the garment production stage, organic cotton is treated with natural oils, dyes and potato starch. Which means the garments are worker-friendly, planet-friendly and kid-friendly!
All our clothes are 100% biodegradable! We use coconut shell buttons and closures and 100% natural plant-based fabrics like GOTs certified cotton and azo-free, natural dyes.
At Miko Lolo, we’re big believers in upcycling and zero waste. No scrap of fabric goes to waste. When we’re around, and we make sure all excess cloth is used in our accessories.
Our price and care tags are printed with non-toxic ink on seed paper. Instead of throwing it in the trash, get your green thumbs out, plant it in the soil with your little one and watch your basil plant grow!
1. Soak the tag in shallow water in a saucer for 2 days, making sure it remains wet throughout.
2. Place healthy, fertile soil in a pot right to the top. Gently pack the soil so it’s slightly compressed and place the tag on top. Add another thin layer of soil on top of the paper (about one-eighth of an inch)
3. Watch your tag grow into a basil plant.
Don’t forget to share pictures of your plant with us. Happy Planting!
