Scanfil joins you with our organic thread.

Did you know that about 25 percent of the world’s insecticide and more than 10 percent of the world’s pesticide is used on cotton crops? Some of these chemicals are considered to be the most toxic chemicals in the world.

The health risks of pesticide exposure include birth defects, reproductive disorders and weakened immune systems. In many countries, cotton is still handpicked. Anyone working in those fields is exposed to extreme amounts of toxic chemicals. Others in the community are also affected once the chemicals have seeped into the water supply. 

With so many products made from cotton, we are all exposed to these chemicals at some point. Even some baked goods, cookies and salad dressings contain cottonseed oil. A pair of jeans typically contains 3/4lbs. of chemicals; a t-shirt features 1/3lbs. If you are simply wearing jeans and a t-shirt, you are wearing over 1 pound of chemicals!

Organic cotton production uses no toxic chemicals.

It employs natural methods such as beneficial insect releases to protect crops. By opting for organic cotton, you’re not only choosing a healthier alternative for yourself, you’re also contributing to a cleaner, chemical-free environment.

For all these reasons FORBITEX developed - and is the first to offer - a complete range of Organic Cotton Sewing Threads, certified by GOTS.

For our Scanfil Organics, all production processes follow the strict rules of the Global Organic Textile Standard. This means we buy naturally grown cotton, grown without the use of chemicals and pesticides. We use natural dye stuffs, natural lubrication, and a very restricted process of mercerizing.

Besides helping the environment and the work environment, we all benefit from the Scanfil Organics initiative.
