Why Fairtrade Cotton is better

Why Takasa Only Uses Fairtrade-Certified Cotton

May 14, 2020Takasa Team
With so many consumer choices out there, it’s difficult for the eco-conscious to be sure that fair wages are paid to workers throughout the manufacturing process. That’s why Takasa is committed to engaging in ethical practices at each step of our supply chain. All of Takasa's cotton is Fairtrade Cotton certified. (Takasa’s certification credentials are filed under FLO ID 40793).

With an estimated 300 million people working in the cotton sector worldwide, many farmers and workers live below the poverty line. In fact, the poorest among them are over 40 million small-scale farmers who are responsible for producing over 60% of the world’s cotton. Competition with large-scale cotton producers leaves most small cotton farmers faced with unfair pricing for their goods. Add in the pressures of changing climates, food price inflation, food insecurity, cotton prices and high-interest loans, and most farmers are left with no power over their livelihood and sometimes no hope to continue farming.
Takasa Fairtrade Trade

Fairtrade was created to give fair pricing and premiums to these farmers in order to provide more stable incomes and give the promise of sustainability year after year. Fairtrade encourages sustainable cotton production through establishing economic, social and environmental standards that protect farmers, reinvest in farming communities and support local education for farmers.
Still curious about Fairtrade? Here's a quick explanation of how Fairtrade works and the impacts of shopping Fairtrade.
