STRONG WORK A TRANSPARENT BRAND IN TERMS OF ETHICS
Strong Work is deeply attached to the values of respect for human beings. It is important to be totally transparent towards athletes who are sensitive to the different manufacturing conditions of their sportswear. Choosing an organic sportswear brand is a responsible choice which answers to deeply human values. Choosing Strong Work is choosing an ethical French brand that takes the conditions of its employees seriously. Within the different factories it is important to know that each fair-trade sportswear is made in conditions that respect human beings. We all have our own principles that reflect our personality. Strong Work is no exception to the rule because of its resolutely ethically committed mindset. Organic cotton farming is growing year after year. According to the Textile Exchange report of 2019 the world production of organic cotton has increased by 56%. This is an interesting figure which alone shows the favourable development of organic cotton farming. This increase in organic cotton production is a good thing for us, if it respects the working conditions of the men and women who produce it. Men and women who cultivate high quality organic cotton every day to provide an exceptional raw material. There is a great disparity in the working conditions in the world of textile cultivation and manufacture. In the traditional textile industry, it is common to find terrible working conditions that affect the health of the workers. The use of huge quantities of chemical fertilisers that are harmful to humans is frequently used in cotton fields. The unreasonable use of pesticides leads to dramatic soil pollution. The soil loses its fertility over time and farmers must use more and more fertiliser year after year. This is a real vicious circle that undeniably leads to the destruction of the environment. The environmental impact is affected by this pollution, especially the different ecosystems. The biodiversity of plants and animals is affected by this pollution. The traditional cotton industry leads to the emergence of serious diseases among farmers who neglect to take precautions when using pesticides and fertilisers. The danger for the consumer is very real, especially for athletes who wear clothing such as T-shirts next to their skin. Wearing this type of clothing in contact with the skin, particularly during physical activity such as sport, is eminently harmful to health. The skin of athletes, moistened by sweat, is more vulnerable when in contact with fabrics impregnated with chemicals. Having an ethical approach to the origin of raw materials to protect workers and consumers is essential to us. Strong Work makes sure every day that the different organic cotton sportswear is ethically responsible.
