Organic Cotton Tote Bag
Product Eco Rating
This Organic Cotton Tote Bag is a great alternative to the conventional Cotton version, causing significantly less harm to the environment. The Organic Cotton used to make this Tote Bag is GOTS Certified.
Organic Cotton is grown without the use of chemicals. It’s free from pesticides, fertilisers and the seeds are not genetically modified. Other than the chemical-free farming, Organic Cotton uses around 70%+ less water to grow, as opposed to conventional Cotton. Although, it can require larger volumes of water and more effort during the manufacturing process (when comparing Organic to Conventional Cotton), depending on the manufacturers capabilities (much the same as most organic/natural materials).
Organic Cotton is durable and this Tote Bag can be reused time and time again. Organic Cotton is typically stronger than conventional Cotton, due to the lack of chemicals that can make the materials more frail.
As it’s made from natural materials, the bag can be buried or placed in the compost where they will quickly decompose, unlike conventional Cotton or synthetic materials.
The reduction in harm to the environment during the farming and manufacturing process of Organic Cotton compared to typical Cotton, the fact that tit is washable and reusable and the ability for the entire item to quickly decompose once buried is why this Organic Tote Bag from Australian brand Wandering Sol is considered to be a eco friendly and sustainable product.
