Our goal is to make conscious consumption accessible to everyone.  Hopefully, we are passing on the idea of natural living onto others. Join our quest and stay informed!

WHY ORGANIC COTTON?  Consumers come into contact with cotton every single day. Growing conventional cotton requires the use of enormous amounts of pesticides, which has a large environmental impact and presents health risks for those working around it. Conventional cotton may cost less, but organic cotton has less impact on the land, farm workers, the planet and thus your well-being. We believe what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it.  Our products are of the highest quality and we validate every step in our entire supply chain to ensure no harmful chemicals are used from field to finished products.

Visit us at

Made from 100% organically grown cotton and certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard, the strictest textile standard in the world. We use the highest quality cotton fibers, which are spared from harmful pesticides and chemicals during production, harvesting and processing. The end result is a pristine cotton fiber that is naturally softer, stronger and delightfully smooth to the touch. You can feel good knowing each Grund product is responsibly made to the absolute highest social and environmental standards and the cotton used can be traced to the very community of cultivation.
