Bamboo - is it organic?
The definition of organic and/or “certified organic”, By the
National Organic Standards Board of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA)
defines organic agriculture as "An ecological production management system
that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological
activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management
practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony."
Certified Organic means a verification process was performed by an independent
state or private organization to ensure that the strict organic standards were
followed in the crop or product's production. Organic standards regulate the
farm production of the raw material, but the finished materials can be treated
with synthetic chemicals and toxic dyes and still be labeled Organic.
Our suppliers use well managed, eco-conscious bamboo crops/farms for the supply of the
raw bamboo. All of our Bamboo Bedding, Bamboo Clothing, Bath
Towels and Baby Products come from certified “organic” crops. Again, you will not find any “greenwashing” political work-around answers here.
With regards to cotton - any of our items that have a cotton/bamboo mix contain
certified organic cotton.
