The A Slice of Green bags are made from GOTS certified organic cotton in India.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres and means the entire textile supply chain is independently certificated including both ecological and social criteria. The cotton is grown on non GM, small farms in South India where the dry climate helps the cotton to grow well. It is then woven in GOTS certified weaving units and sewn into bags by our manufacturer. For the mesh bags the fabric is woven to the actual size of the bag (as it cannot be cut easily) which also means there is no wastage.
The bags each have a GOTS label and A Slice of Green branded label inside. The branded label includes the tare weight ie. the weight of the empty bag.
Our manufacturer is a family business that makes the bags in their own sewing unit in Tamil Nadu, India. We visited the unit in 2018 and were impressed by the high standards - pictures below...
We also sell a natural organic cotton baggie and wrap which are made for us by Keep Leaf in India. You can find out more about Keep Leaf here.
