What is Organic Cotton?
Organic cotton is grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilisers and is GMO-free. It thrives using traditional techniques and contrary to public perception, uses 91% less water than conventional cotton. As the rainwater that falls on organic cotton fields flows back into rivers and seas clean and uncontaminated by pesticides, it has an overall positive effect on soil, water and animals. And crucially, the health of cotton farmers and their communities is respected and protected.

Recycle or Upcycle your clothes
You've lost that loving feeling towards some of your clothes. They're looking old and tired.
Time for a new look, time for a change, time to dispose of them and move on, right?
Well just hold on there a second. Before you dash to trash, ask yourself a few questions:
Can you fix it?
Yes you can.
A well-placed stitch, a new button or a simple repair job could breathe new life into unwanted clothes. It'll be like adding whole new outfits to your wardrobe.
Well you've come to the right place.
Upcycling is in, with people across the UK getting creative to transform jaded items into brand new clothes and accessories.
Can you share it?
We're certain of it.
Swap parties or swishing are a fun way to get rid of unwanted items in your wardrobe. You can invite friends over with their unwanted clothing and see what you can swap – you could come away with new things for your wardrobe that won't cost you a thing.
Can you sell it?
We'd put money on it.
With two thirds of people already buying pre-owned and vintage clothes, there's a willing market out there. You can sell clothing online through websites such as eBay, Gumtree and even Facebook, or through your local cash for clothes outlet and at car boot sales.
We knew you cared.
Donating unwanted clothes to charity is a great way to support your favourite causes.
You can take them to a local shop yourself or put them in a textiles bank provided by charities - you can find these at supermarkets or through local council websites. Some charities also make door-to-door collections, so keep an eye out for those plastic sacks coming through your letterbox.
Is there anything I can bin?
We don't think so.
There's no reason to put any clothing or textiles in the bin.
If you can't fix, upcycle, sell, share or give away unwanted items, they can still go into a textile recycling bank. Socks, pants, even old curtains, they can all be re-used.
