    Information about microplasts

    Microplaster is a collective name for small plastic fragments ranging from nanometers to five millimeters. Microplastic arises when, for example, polyester clothing (string bags for prams are often made of polyester) and other plastic materials, such as when fleece garments are washed and the microplaster disappears in the drain. The purification plants are unable to capture all micro-plastic, especially not the microscopic. The inhabitants of the sea receive plastic particles in the belief that it is food. The plastic particles may remain long and cause major problems for aquatic animals, as they are not broken down into the digestive tract. Microplastic is also a health hazard to us humans because researchers found microplastic in the fish we eat. Why is it bad to eat microplastics? In animal experiments, some PFAS substances (substances found in plastic) have caused liver damage, affected the immune system and impaired the ability to have kids. Certain substances in plastic are suspected carcinogenic.

    Manufacturing
    Manufactured in India at a GOTS-certified factory. The factory is visited regularly. The GOTS standard guarantees that the fabric is organic and that a variety of international rights for employees are met and that no toxic, hormonal, carcinogenic or polluting chemicals are used in the production and dyeing. Extensive controls are carried out by independent certification bodies, which monitor and test all stages of the production chain – the organic cotton, spinning, dyeing and imports are checked.

    Other information about the factory

    KeepJars organic textile products are all manufactured at the same factory in India. KeepJar's founder Annamaja Segtnan was an exchange design student and social entrepreneur in India 2007-2012. The factory has a social focus and here are some examples. The usual thing in the textile industry is that textile workers get paid per sewn product, which creates enormous stress for the employee. At our factory monthly wages are applied, which is unusual in the textile industry. Workers are also paid even in temporarily slower production pace. Parents have the right to go down in time (for family life time and household work). There is an action plan to avoid sexual harassment at the workplace and a special committee has meetings once a quarter to identify and prevent. The company is actively working to hire housewives to pack products, as a way to get them to start working. 80% of the workers live within 10 minutes walking distance from the factory and can choose to have lunch at home.
