Sustainability and Social Justice The premium quality organic cotton used for Cocoon® TravelSheets™ and MummyLiners™ is grown by Indian farmers. Organized in cooperatives, many small, family-owned Indian farms have gone organic over the last years. Organic cotton farming is characterized by a great respect for the environment, a number of natural approaches to pest management and soil fertility as well as social improvements for the farmers and their communities. Pesticide-Free Farming and Organic Fertilizers Indian organic cotton farmers use natural alternatives to pesticides and insecticides including neem plant-based pest control and they fertilize their fields with organic worm compost. Farmer Empowerment and Economic Development Growing organic cotton gives Indian farmers in these cooperatives a new sense of economic security. Fairtrade certified cooperatives and factories guarantee a fair and stable price for organic cotton. Premiums for organic and Fairtrade cotton flow into community development projects democratically chosen by the farmers. "
