About Our Supply Chain
Unlike most apparel companies, Mightly uses a completely transparent supply chain. We know our factories, their suppliers and where our organic cotton is grown.
But just knowing isn't enough. Certification matters too. Our partner factory is certified to Social Accountability International’s SA8000 standard for labor conditions and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) for environmental standards.
About Organic Cotton
Organic cotton is cotton that is produced and certified to organic agricultural standards. Its production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs.
Organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Instead, it combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.
No toxic chemicals are used in the growing of organic cotton. It doesn’t damage the soil, has less impact on the air, and uses 71% less water and 62% less energy.

About the Farmers
While all organic cotton is better for the planet, not all organic cotton is the same. Mightly uses cotton from Chetna Organic Farmers Association. Chetna is a farmer-owned nonprofit that works with smallholder farming families in three rain-fed regions of India: Maharashta, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. Since its founding in 2004, Chetna has worked with marginalized farmers to make farming a sustainable and profitable occupation.
