The mill in India treats the safe mordants (used to fixate the dyes on to the fabric) with lime to neutralise the waste water so it can be returned to the local waterways completely safely.
The mixing and settling water treatment tanks produce a sludge which is used as manure and water that is reused on the gardens where they grow the plants for dying. This is possible as they only use biodegradable soaps in their water treatments so it is all safe for their beautiful organic gardens.
Further to this, they have been recycling the water in the dye vats since they they began in the 90s – wasting no water at all!
100% GOTS organic cotton, sustainably harvested without pesticides, herbicides, defoliants, GMOs or unsustainable irrigation.
