Organic Exchange is a 501(C)(3) charitable organization committed to expanding organic agriculture, with a specific focus on increasing the production and use of organically grown fibers such as cotton. Our long-term goal is to grow the amount of certified organic land farmed for fiber production by 50% per year. Achieving this goal will allow us to have a positive, significant, visible and measurable impact on the world. We create solutions which improve environmental quality, enhance the livelihoods of farmers, increase profitability for innovative brands and their business partners and expand consumer choice.
OE 100 Standard
The OE 100 Standard is a standard for tracking and documenting the purchase, handling and use of 100% certified organic cotton fiber in yarns, fabrics and finished goods.
The OE 100 Standard helps ensure that consumers of organic cotton products can be confident that the product contains 100% certified organically farmed ingredients. It also provides a tool for companies to use in confirming that the products they are buying or selling contain the percentage of organic cotton that they have stated.
OE Blended Standard
The OE Blended Standard is for tracking and documenting the purchase, handling and use of certified organically farmed cotton fiber in blended yarns, fabrics and finished goods. The standard applies to all goods that contain a minimum of 5% organic cotton.
