As a family growing up in County Wicklow, Ireland we lived an outdoors, organic lifestyle. We all shared a passion for a good night’s sleep but struggled to find top quality sheets that weren’t sky high prices. We set out to find them and together we created White & Green. After many years of research, we found our factory and began creating the the upmost in luxury, cotton bedding. Throughout our travels around the world, we learnt the importance of ethical consumption which is why we are proud to be 100% Organic & Fairtrade certified. From farmer to factory, to you our products are made with love and care and we really hope you love them as much as we do.
Conventionally grown cotton is one of the most chemically dependent crops in the world, accounting for 25% of global pesticide use. An estimated 25 to 77 million agricultural workers suffer from acute pesticide poisoning. On the other hand, chemical residue on cotton can cause issues such as skin irritation, rashes, and dizziness for the consumer. This is why we are proud to be certified organic across our entire supply chain, ensuring the wellbeing of people and the planet.
We believe there are no excuses for inhumane practices. We comply with international labour laws and we pay a fair wage for fair work. In fact, our workers are paid the highest wages of all local textile factories. They receive pensions, medical insurance for their entire family, rent allowance and sponsored meals. We also pay them a fairtrade premium, which they spend on community projects.
We hope you love White & Green as much as we do and we look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you!
