Traigh Bhan is going organic!
Support organic bedlinen for Traigh Bhan.
Traigh Bhan, our retreat house on Iona, is asking for your support with its unique infrastructure needs that come from our remote location in the inner Hebrides. We are doing what we can to go organic, for example growing many of our own vegetables chemical-free in the Traigh Bhan garden, supplemented by the delicious organic produce from Cullerne Garden.
Now we have to replace our old duvet covers and bed linen and would love to take the next step in organically by replacing them with organic cotton ones. We would love your support!
Organic cotton is grown in a way that uses methods and materials that lessen the impact on our environment. A big effort in the organic movement is to use growing systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture. Organic cotton uses far less water too. The main benefit of organic materials, however, is that the crops aren’t treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms. These toxins are harmful for farmers and workers, us as consumers, and entire wildlife eco-systems.David Dietz, Huffington Post
Sleeping with organic cotton brings peace in our hearts and minds, and benefits the planet!
