WHERE ARE THE PRODUCTS MADE?
WHAT IS GOTS-CERTIFIED?
GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. Just like the FDA is the leading authority when it comes to drugs, GOTS is the leading global standard for organic textile processing. GOTS-certified merchants are committed (and are constantly monitored) to adhere to the highest environmental and social standards. This means that the product and its production process are environmentally safe, and that employees enjoy a safe work environment and sufficient working conditions.
WHAT IS THE FAIR-WEAR FOUNDATION?
FAIR-WEAR is an independent non-profit organization that was founded in order to resolve the troubling issue of factory workers' conditions in the fashion industry. These workers often face inhumane working conditions such as: no vacation days, hazardous work environment, constant harassments, and extremely low wages.
FAIR-WEAR works with brands that are committed to safeguard workers' rights. FAIR-WEAR helps brands use their power to improve the lives of the people who make their products.

WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON?
Traditional cotton is devastating for the environment. It is one of the world's most polluting crops. It is produced from genetically-modified seeds. It requires massive amounts of water and synthetic pesticides. Its production process emits high levels of CO2 and damages the fertility of the soil.
Organic cotton, on the other hand, is produced from 100% natural seeds. Organic cotton production requires much less water and no synthetic pesticides. Organic cotton farmers also use crop rotation methods that actually replenish the soil. This also results in fewer CO2 emissions.
So, the difference in the environmental impact is huge. Ecoholic Threads™ is committed to use only earth-friendly materials.
IS MY ITEM RECYCLABLE?
Yes. Organic cotton is a natural plant, thus recyclable. Please do note that some of our items also contain recycled polyester, which is recyclable too. If your item contains both organic cotton and recycled polyester, it may be required to be dropped to a separate recycling container.
IS MY ITEM BIODEGRADABLE?
If your item is made of 100% organic cotton then yes, it is biodegradable. Note that some our items also contain a small percentage of recycled polyester, which is not biodegradable. However, it recyclable.
