Where are Gossling Organics products made?
Our products are all made in our home studio in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
What materials are used in Gossling Organics products?
Our products are made using organic cotton canvas and GOTS certified organic cotton. Conventional cotton fabric includes lots of chemicals - 25% of all pesticides in agriculture, and is made with chemical dyes and processing agents.Organic cotton, on the other hand, is grown without harmful pesticides, printed with low impact dyes and processed without harmful chemicals, resulting in a healthier, safer product for us and for the earth. It is important for us at Gossling Organics to use 100% organic fabrics. It gives us, and you, the option to live a cleaner, eco friendly lifestyle.
GOTS is a textile production certification that limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process of textiles. It is internationally recognized as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes far beyond verifying the organic farming process to include every step of manufacturing. To obtain the GOTS “organic” label, a product must:
- Contain at least 95% organic fiber
- Not be treated with bleach, formaldehyde or any other toxic substances
- Be colored with nontoxic dyes
- Be produced in a mill that enforces strict social and environmental standards, treating their employees and the earth with deep respect. GOTS certification means that our products meet the very highest standards.
Are Gossling Organics bins and zippered bags machine washable
You betcha! Our products are 100% machine washable. However, due to the delicate nature of the hand embroidery, which can be found on some of our products, we recommend spot washing. Should you need to toss your products in the machine, please use a gentle cycle with cold water and mild detergent
