We work to promote organic production to safeguard the health of humans, animals and our global environment.
What makes something organic?*
There are rules and regulations which must be met by any product before it can be labeled as ‘organic’. EU law contains organic standards - rules and regulations that define how a product is made.
Organic food products must be produced using environmentally and animal friendly farming methods on organic farms. These methods are legally defined and any food sold as 'organic' must be strictly regulated.
Organic clothing and textiles must have been made from organically-produced cotton, and processing must not use harmful manufacturing chemicals.
There must be full traceability back to the commodity or raw material and the production must have been carried out to foster the recycling of resources, conservation of the environment and protection of biodiversity.
*Definitions of 'organic' from the Soil Association.
EJF's organic 'JUST FOR' designer t-shirts
EJF produces a range of ethical t-shirts that are made from organic, fairly-traded cotton without the use of pesticides. The carbon footprint of an EJF t-shirt is estimated to be 90% less than a conventional, non-organic, non-environmentally friendly t-shirt from the high street.
High profile designers and celebrities who have supported EJF’s t-shirt project to date include Vivienne Westwood, Katharine Hamnett, Christian Lacroix, Giles Deacon, Kenzo Takada, Luella, Eley Kishimoto, Jenny Packham, Emma Cook, Lily Cole, Naomi Campbell, Erin O’Connor, David Gandy, Gillian Anderson, Diana Vickers, George Craig and Polly Delevingne.
We sell our ethical and sustainable fashion products to raise money for EJF campaigns through our JUST FOR fashion brand at www.just-for.co.uk and in JUST FOR fashion pop up shops in London’s premier fashion districts. To date we have raised over £300,000 and created huge impact for affordable, sustainable fashion and our campaigns to protect the environment and defend human rights.
