Ethical production standards – for both people and the environment – are at the core of what we do here at Connecta, and it is particularly true of our Pure range which is made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
The Global Organic Textile Standard is important for many reasons, and there are five unique benefits that organic production offers:
1. It gives control to farmers, not GM companies
Organic farmers don’t have their choices controlled by GM companies
2. It eliminates hazardous synthetic pesticides
Organic cotton doesn’t use dangerous pesticides, protecting farmers’ lives and the environment
3. It helps farmers feed their families
Organic cotton enables farmers to grow other crops for food and income
4. It saves precious water
Organic cotton uses less water, preserving a scarce and precious resource for the future
5. It helps combat climate change
Organic cotton farming uses less energy and healthy organic soils store more CO2
It really is the highest quality cotton available – which is why we are so proud to offer it for this range of Connectas.
The Pure range is available to order in standard, toddler and preschool size, and in ten gorgeous colours. Take a look at our website to see which colours are currently available for dispatch – or alternatively if the colour or size you would like is not available then you can register for our Pure preorder!

In the words of the policy director of the Soil Association:
Organic cotton is proven to deliver positive benefits for people and the environment. When it comes to making sustainabilty claims you can trust, nothing beats it.
