Sustainable sourcing of organic cotton
Bears for Humanity sources cotton from small co-ops, whose farms practice crop rotation, use natural fertilizer and healthy water to ensure the health of the soil.
All products pass the Global Organic Textile Standard Chemical Composition test not just by having ‘legally acceptable’ levels of toxins, but by being 100% free of them.
HANDCRAFTED BY SMALL ARTISAN CO-OPS
The cotton passes hands for each one of these processes.
They work with small, artisanal co-ops for each step of processing, from washed to dyed.
Each co-op must adhere to strict safety requirements so that finished products will contain no trace of harsh chemicals, kids can touch and play with them safely.
WATER SOLUBLE ECO-DYES
Their products are dyed with 100% non-toxic water-soluble eco-dyes, which do not harm the environment.
As they are free of harsh chemicals, they are safe for even the most sensitive child.
Their bear’s hang tags are made of recycled paper and printed with water-soluble eco-ink.
They are packaged in biodegradable bags that protect the bears and the environment.
