help needed for english french translation

hello,
any one there to help me to translate this paragraph to good french.

Gastrobio believe that the more information consumers receive, the more attention will be paid to the use of organic food and materials in daily life .For us It is important to buy organic cotton (not only because it is trendy) to let everyone know that the environment and social responsibility are within the values of their life time and that is an important factor for us to decide using bio products. It is good to find organic cotton initiatives but let us keep pushing to raise the percentages of its use , because we believe that
" A better World Will Begin With Us".

thank you very much.
waiting for your kind help

Re: help needed for english french translation

I'm not a translator...

But I am a native English speaker and I think that passage needs some work to improve the quality of the English before you start translating it into French.

For starters, what is it supposed to be? An advert, a mission statement, or a 'what we believe' statement? To be honest I can't decide if the passage is supposed to be chatty or formal in tone - it is an uncomfortable mix of the two. Your sentences are too long, poorly structured and some of them don't make a great deal of sense.

If you want help, I suggest you provide more information about what you are trying to say, what your target audience is, and what the context is. Then perhaps someone will be able to help you get that paragraph into a paragrapher that is decently-structured, grammatically correct, and that contains vocabulary that is appropriate for your aim and audience.

You might also consider updating your profile to be a little more specific. I am not inclined to help someone who cannot decide if they are a 'business student', a 'business man' or a 'business owner'. Why? Because I prefer to help people who are upfront about who they are, what they need help with and why they need it. I am under the impression that most of the posters on here feel the same way. If you come back and explain a little more, I'd be happy to try and get your English into better shape. And then perhaps someone might help with the French.
