OEKO TEX 100

Organic Cotton is Vegan is its production does not cause harm to local wildlife or habitats.
Cotton grown organically means farmers grow healthy crops using techniques such as crop rotation and composting. This maintains soil health and protects ecosystems by using natural processes.
Conservation of Water
Organic Cotton uses 91% less water than non-Organic Cotton. Typically, it takes 2,700 litres of water to produce a small item such as a T-Shirt or hand towel. That is a lot.
Cotton is not only organic but also passes strict ecological and social criteria. This means that products are created in an environment practising health and safety and not forced labour, children or coercion.
We are incredibly proud to be part of the 1% for the planet, an initiative that allows us to donate 1% of our profits to amazing causes who tackle our planet's most urgent environmental issues.
The Longing, and Lindsey & Jack personally, are part of Ecologi.

If you have ever taken the time to read a towel label, I don't know... perhaps whilst face-down on a sun lounger, trapped in the loo or, frankly, because you care about what you are buying into, then you may have come across Organic Cotton. 'Why does it matter if Cotton is Organic, I'm not eating it?!'
Firstly, please do not eat Organic Cotton. Here, at The Longing HQ, we can categorically confirm it does not taste good.
Secondly, it is much more sustainable, using less water and no chemicals, fertilisers or pesticides to produce, thus protecting local wildlife and habitats.
Lastly, it is just beautifully soft and there is no better feeling than knowing the little things we enjoy, the meaningful moments in our lives, are guilt-free. If you have The Longing to know more about Organic Cotton, then you are in luck!
