Benefits for you: - You'll be more content knowing the producers and the planet have been treated well.

 - Your cotton goods are free of allergy-causing toxic pesticides and insecticides.

- You'll enjoy top quality goods from the expert Indian craftspeople at Rajlakshmi.

Benefits for the producers and the planet: - Organic clothing production means no toxic pesticides and insecticides are used in cotton growing. That means better health and less debt for the Indian farming families.

   - Traditional cotton growing uses about 60% of all toxic chemicals used in India, so moving to organic production makes a huge difference.

   - The organic cotton growing is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard.

The Chetna Organic Farmers Association is registered by FLO-International (Fairtrade Labelling Organizations International) which ensures a fair price and conditions for the farmers. This FLO registration also ensures cotton production: - Is child-labour free

 - Is produced by small & marginal farmers - Is socially responsible for its farmers and farm-workers in the production chain

- Is absolutely free of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms)

- Cotton spinning is done in a factory that is ILO (International Labour Organization) compliant and also ISO 9001:2000 (quality management) certified. - The factories producing the final products are meeting all ILO requirements for their workforces (in fact they do better than ILO requirements, for example by providing primary and secondary education for the workers' children, and a revolving loan scheme for workers).

- Whenever dyes are used the organic fabric dyeing process is GOTS certified

In brief our project partners at Rajlakshmi Cotton Mills and the Chetna Organic Famers Association are working very hard to ensure that conditions in the entire production chain exceed the goals of the Clean Clothes
