Why Organic?

At Tenth & Pine we have always been committed to using only certified organic and environmentally friendly materials.

Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a positive impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, expand biologically diverse agriculture, and prohibit the use of synthetic toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, as well as genetically engineered seed. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers meet strict federal regulations addressing methods and materials allowed in organic production. Sustainable water management is a fundamental part of organic production. This involves the use of agronomic practices such as crop rotations and the use of green manure, catch and cover crops - shown to reduce nutrient leaching and run-off into water bodies.

Organic agriculture protects the health of people and the planet by reducing overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with numerous health consequences, from asthma to cancer. Because organic agriculture doesn’t use toxic and persistent pesticides, choosing organic products is an easy way to help protect you, your family and the farming communities that are growing cotton.

Our organic fibers are certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textiles Standards). GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

Our GOTS organic cotton is its natural color. It is left untreated, unbleached and never dyed.
