Mama's Root offers products that are eco-responsible, which means that their production has a low impact on the environment.
Cotton is considered the world's dirtiest crop due to its heavy use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Unsustainable farming methods are responsible for the pollution of the soil and water shortage. Chemicals contaminate rivers, lakes, wetlands, and they affect the biodiversity surrounding the cotton fields.
Organic farming methods support the land and the ecosystems around them. Also, organic cotton is never grown from genetically modified seeds.
Influencing the cotton industry to respect acceptable environmental standards is a challenging task. However, Mama's Root is choosing to do it's little contribution.
By purchasing products from Mama's Root, you increase demand for pure, safe, organic products, and you show your support for sustainable agriculture.
