With around 52,000 team members and 2,200 stores, ranging from local community pharmacies to large destination health and beauty stores, Boots serves its customer and patients’ wellbeing for life. The GOTS certification means the cotton is farmed without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides or synthetic fertilisers, and in fact sustains the health of soils and the environment. This supports the farmers of cotton, allowing them to grow additional crops alongside cotton, like food, which they can use themselves or as a source of income. According to WWF , current cotton production methods are environmentally unsustainable. Non-organic cotton has been dubbed the ‘world’s dirtiest crop’ as it accounts for 16% of global insecticide use – more than any other single crop. Traditional cotton production requires substantial amounts of water, so it depletes local water reserves, impacts and wildlife and affects the health of farmers.
