How we are sustainable
At Tajah Lane, we believe passionately in a regenerative future for people and the planet. That’s why we look carefully at our business to ensure we are having a positive, regenerative impact in everything we do.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a great template to help us regularly assess where we are and where we want to make improvements.
Specifically, we want to ensure we minimise our impact on people and the planet.
At Tajah Lane we do this by:
- Using only certified organic cotton and dyes for our bedding ranges. Globally, non-organic cotton production accounts for 8-10% of pesticides and up to 50% of all pesticides used in developing countries, contributing to poor health of farmers, degradation of soil and water systems and reduction in biodiversity. Certified organic cotton growing accounts for about 0.2% of world cotton production. Organic cultivation does not allow the use of any synthetic fertilisers, pesticides or genetically modified seeds, and requires other best practice management that increase soil fertility such as manuring and crop rotation.
- Our bed linen production partners are selected for their Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification which requires having a functional waste water treatment plant for any wet-processing unit involved in order to minimise the release of untreated waste water. The key criteria of GOTS is its quality assurance system which is recognised as the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres.
- Providing recyclable and reusable packaging options where possible. Our duvets and pillowcases are presented in recyclable cardboard boxes, and the quilts come in handy reusable organic cotton drawstring bags.
- Ensuring all our supply chain partners employ workers fairly and for a fair wage, meeting international ethical audit standards.
