Product information

Product update - 10/12/2020

Due to variations in the dying process, this organic cotton scarf formerly advertised as Burgundy, featured in the winter catalogue, has been redefined as Russet. This update has been made to best represent the actual product colour.

Part of our organic cotton scarf collection, inspired by nature... This richly coloured RSPB organic cotton scarf in russet is made from soft organic cotton with strong environmental and ethical benefits over non-organic cotton, proving that fashion doesn't have to cost the earth.

Size:

  • Length 180cm
  • Width 100cm

100% organic cotton

The cotton story

Cotton is the world's largest non-food crop, and millions of people rely on the industry for survival. However, the environmental impacts of conventional cotton farming can be devestating.

GOTS certified organic cotton scarfs logo

Cotton production uses huge volumes of water, which has led to the loss of habitats around the world - for people and animals. 

In addition, most fabrics made from cotton rely on farming methods that use harmful pesticides. The run-off from contaminated fields can poison rivers, wildlife and whole communities.

Furthermore the cost of these pesticides often leave farmers trapped in debt.

GOTS certified organic cotton

Organic cotton is produced without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) ensures textiles are produced in a more ecological and socially responsible way.

  • Water use is monitored, with targets set to reduce water consumption and increase efficiency more sustainably
  • Pesticides are not used, encouraging more wildlife-friendly farming
  • Social criteria are also required: Minimum wages, safe working conditions, and fair working hours.
  • Using a natural fibre like cotton means microplastics leeching from fabrics into our waterways is not an issue

Look out for the GOTS logo and better alternatives to non-organic cotton when updating your wardrobe.

Product was changed after order was placed
I ordered a burgundy robin scarf as a gift for my mother but received a russet scarf instead with no notification or explanation. The order description was even changed when I checked on the website, in what feels like an attempt to gaslight me. Fortunately I have a copy of the email confirmation of my original order telling me the truth. Not at all happy with such a devious practice from the RSPB. Very unprofessional and makes me question my support for this organisation.

Buyers beware!
RSPB response
We are sorry about the change in colour of the scarf. Due to the nature of the organic cotton the colour can differ, this lead to the original image being different to the scarf you received. If you would like a refund please contact our customer services.

Colour not as stated
This scarf is described and shown as burgundy. It is NOT - it is brown. Had I known this I would not have bought this. The robins are cute, but it would have been a lot nicer with a burgundy or red background. I won't return this but I will be donating to a Charity.
RSPB response
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we are sorry the colour was not as advertised. The colour can vary during the dying process of the organic cotton. We have updated the colour and description of the scarf.
