Is Bamboo organic
The definition of organic and/or “certified organic”, By the USDA:
The National Organic Standards Board of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines organic agriculture as “An ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.” Certified Organic means a verification process was performed by an independent state or private organization to ensure that the strict organic standards were followed in the crop or product’s production. Organic standards regulate the farm production of the raw material, but the finished materials can be treated with synthetic chemicals and toxic dyes and still be labeled Organic.
Our suppliers use well managed, eco-conscious bamboo crops/farms for the supply of the raw bamboo. All of our Bath Towels and Baby Products come from certified “organic” crops. You will not find any “greenwashing” political work-around answers here. With regards to cotton – any of our items that have a cotton/bamboo mix contain certified organic cotton.
