Target now carries GOTS certified organic cotton sheets sets. They're not only a good deal, but they're good for the planet and for workers.
Choosing organic cotton over the conventional stuff makes a huge environmental and social impact. Cotton is the most heavily sprayed crop in the world, and most conventional cotton is genetically modified, courtesy of Monsanto.
The trouble with organic cotton is that it can be on the pricey side, and sometimes it's marketed in a misleading way. So, you can imagine how pleased I was to stumble upon these organic cotton sheets at Target! I picked up a set of full sheets in chocolate brown that included a fitted sheet, top sheet, and two pillowcases for just under $38. While conventional cotton sheets at Target probably run a bit more than half that price, $38 is a pretty good deal for organic cotton, and with Target's reach that means access to a reasonably priced eco-alternative for a lot of shoppers who might not have considered organic an option before.
Not only are these sheets reasonably priced, but they're GOTS certified, meaning they measure up to the Global Organic Textile Standard. GOTS is a third-party certification that sets a high bar, and it's a good one to look for when you're wondering if the organic textiles you're looking at are legit.
Have you guys spotted organic options in other unexpected places? I'd love to hear about them in the comments!
