ORGANIC HAIR TIES - Ginger
The first organic cotton and plastic-free hair ties! Those beauties come in a pack of 5. They are long-lasting and very great for thick hair, kids or athletes. Plus, they look pretty as wristbands!
❤ 75% GOTS certified Organic Cotton from India
❤ 25% Natural Rubber from India
❤ OEKO-Tex and GOTS certified Organic Dyes from India
The hair ties are designed in Canada and because natural rubber comes from the rubber tree which does not grow in America, they are made in India where the tree grows.
Non-Toxic: Certified organic cotton and dyes, no synthetics, not pesticide-heavy
Fair Trade: Supporting fair wages at a Fair Trade certified cut & sew facility owned and operated by nuns, and at a small family farm that produces the natural rubber
Zero waste: Long-lasting, reusable, plastic free, 100% biodegradable
Vegan: No animal-based ingredients or testing on animals
Giving: Kooshoo donates product and profit to charity and their cut & sew facility's profits go to a cancer treatment centre for those without access to care
Eco-friendly: The organic cotton and natural rubber are grown nearby to the cut & sew facility to keep the supply chain short and save unnecessary transports, Kooshoo's packaging is 100% recycled FSC certified paper and all waste water of the dye house is recycled to drinking quality

MEET THE MAKERS
Kooshoo was founded by Jesse and Rachel, husband and wife yoga teachers living in Canada. Their goal is to help people feel good. Kooshoo's core values are honesty, transparency and love. Their mission is to uplift every person involved in the making of their products.
Kooshoo means feeling good in Norfuk, a small Island in the South Pacific where Rachel comes from.
The founder's priority was to find a production partner that is both certified and audited regularly and has the Fair Trade and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) accreditation. After months and months of samples and multiple visits to India, they found the perfect cut & sew facility, owned and operated by nuns.
For more than 25 years the women have been making locally grown, organic cotton garments.
Jesse has been to their facility twice in the past year, working closely with the Sisters and their team of local creators.
"Every time you choose to support a company doing things right, know that your choice benefits more people (and animals) than you can imagine!" - Kooshoo
