A Short Video on OrganicEra
we are killing our soil by supporting conventional agriculture,
we are contaminating the soil with one cup of ( approximately 100 gr) insecticides to grow the cotton that is needed to make one basic t-shirt, the toxic chemicals sprayed into the air is absorbed by the soil and the groundwaters,
we are destroying the natural life, the agricultural workers are prone to pesticide poisoning, vomiting, memory loss, lack of coordination and lung cancer,
the carbofuran used during the spraying causes the death of approximately 2 million birds annually (EPA),
these chemicals are affecting our health even if we ignore them, being exposed to pesticides might cause birth defects, reproductive disorders and weakened immune system, we do not consider in what way the products we buy are produced, and we ignore the damages to the environment caused during the production, However, our families' and our own health, the productivity of the mother earth is in our hands..
You can make a big difference with a small change...
GOTS ( Global Organic Textile Standard) was developed through collaboration by leading standard setters with the aim of defining requirements that are-recognized- world-wide and that ensure the organic status of textiles from harvesting of the raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labeling in order to provide credible assurance to the consumer. Since its introduction in 2006 the Global Organic Textile Standard has already demonstrated its practical feasibility. Supported by the growth in consumption of organic fibres and by the remarkable demand for unified processing criteria from the industry and retail sector, it has gained universal recognition, enabling processors and manufacturers to supply their organic textiles with one certification accepted in all major markets. With the introduction of the logo and labelling system the GOTS is already visible not only on the shelves of natural textile shops but large-scale retailers and brand dealers as well. This is a milestone in consumer recognition and a strong acknowledgement of our reliable quality assurance concept.
GOTS standards not only represent the cotton production processes but also applies social criteria to both textile processing and farming to promote humane, safe and hygienic working conditions at all the stages of processing and production. There is no forced labor and workers are not required to lodge so-called “identity deposits” with their employer.
Workers are free to leave their job at any time and have the right to join or form trade unions. Child labor is absolutely forbidden, and strictly enforced. Wages and benefits paid for a standard working week meet national labour standards or industry benchmark standards, whichever is higher. Working hours comply with national laws and benchmark industry standards whichever affords greater protection.
The OrganicEra items are certified as organic by ETKO according to the GOTS standards.

The dyeing of our yarn and material is done with heavy metal-free colors, which do not contain any harmful chemicals, and are in accordance with the Global Organic Textile standard. Our dyes do not contain PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride). PVC is a hazardous chemical used in the conventional dyeing process that has been proved to cause kidney failure, developmental delays, and even hearing loss in children. Our aim during the dyeing process is to use only such agents and methods that are environmentally sound and, at the same time, ensure the highest quality standard.
In order to get the very soft feel of our material, the cotton yarn is handled with great care during the knitting or weaving process. All auxiliaries used must either be recyclable or be biodegradable to at least 90%. For example, for the weaving process only natural starch is used.
No, we do not use bleach. Sometimes the cotton harvest of a particular year is more on the yellow side. To achieve our white color we use a natural whitening process, which uses hydrogen peroxide
No, we do not use chemical finishings on our fabrics. One of the most dangerous chemicals found in the finishing of conventional fabrics is Formaldehyde. This is a chemical gas used in the finishing of conventional cotton fabrics. Babies and children are very sensitive to this chemical, and having it on the clothes they wear can cause skin rashes, coughing, and flue like symptoms.
OrganicEra toys are filled with PLA or natural wool. The plush toys which are filled with wool can not be machine washable.Please, do not immerse the wool toys in water-only take a damp cloth with a mild detergent to wash away the spot that needs cleaning. We use PLA (polylactic acid) instead of silicone as a filling material in our rattles. PLA is an innovative material obtained from corn starch. It is also a soft material that absorbs and retains the shape, making it an excellent choice for our organic toys. PLA is made from sugar cane without GMO and does not contain harmful chemicals. In addition, PLA is biodegradable and is a more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based materials. OrganicEra is proud to be the first company in Turkey to use PLA as a filling material.
Use a detergent that does not contain chlorine, phosphate, dyes, or phenols.just all-natural ingredients. There are many brands to choose from, depending on your personal preference.
No, we do not use flame retardant on any of our products.
Our snaps are made of nickel-free copper, according to OEKO-TEX standard 100.
