25% of the world’s pesticides and 10% of the world’s synthetic fertilisers are used to grow non-organic cotton, which covers less than 3% of the world’s farmland. Processing of conventional cotton uses toxic dyes and bleaches that remain in the finished fabric. Workers at these farms and mills are often exploited and exposed to these harmful chemicals. Using GOTS Certified Organic Cotton fabric is a guarantee of international labour and environmental standards. This is the fabric that we use for all of our products.
After they were made redundant by a large multi-national without lawful compensation a group of mostly women sewing factory workers based in Thailand banded together to fight for their legal rights. Their success in mobilising led them to create a new factory, established as a worker's cooperative where each worker has a direct vote in decisions. They work free of threat and exploitation and are paid a fair wage. We are proud to partner with this worker's cooperative for sewing our products.
WHY ETHEQ AT HOME
Two friends got together to create ETHEQ and ETHEQ AT HOME. We had long opposed the exploitative nature of the fast fashion industry and the overuse of plastic in our society. We wanted to create quality, timelessly designed products that meet the highest ethical and sustainable standards from the start, from when the cotton seeds are planted, to the very end, when it reaches your home. That's our promise to you.
For larger orders, we can customise all our products with your logo, unique design, or event information.
Perfect for your conferences, team events, webstores, gifts and so on.
We also have many other products that can be customised: folders, coffee, tea, chocolate, and more. All ethically and sustainably made. Visit our main home page to find out more.
