Sustainability - why GOTS is important

Little Pancakes will only select from GOTS approved brands, because - 
    • Reduced Use of Harmful Chemicals: GOTS prohibits the use of harmful chemicals often used in conventional cotton production, such as pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers. This reduces pollution of soil and water, protects biodiversity, and promotes a healthier environment for both workers and consumers.
    • Sustainable Water Management: GOTS encourages responsible water usage throughout the production process, minimizing water consumption and ensuring proper wastewater treatment. This is crucial for conserving water resources and protecting ecosystems.
    • Reduced Carbon Footprint: Organic cotton farming practices typically involve less energy use compared to conventional methods. This translates to a lower carbon footprint and contributes to mitigating climate change.
Social Benefits:
    • Fair Labor Practices: GOTS certification ensures adherence to fair labor practices throughout the supply chain. This includes ensuring fair wages, safe working conditions, and no child labor. By choosing GOTS cotton, consumers support ethical and sustainable production practices.
  • Transparency and Traceability: GOTS certification guarantees transparency in the supply chain. Consumers can be confident that their cotton products are genuinely organic and ethically produced. This level of traceability allows for accountability and promotes responsible sourcing practices.
