Why Organic Cotton?
What Is Organic Cotton?
Organic Cotton is produced & certified to organic standards. Its production sustains Soil health, Eco-system preservation, Wildlife health, & the Well-being of people.
Organic cotton does this by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Most importantly, organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Instead, it combines traditional, innovation, and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.
The main benefit of organic cotton is that organic cotton is not treated with pesticides, insecticides, and GMOs. Pesticides are harmful to farmers, workers, consumers, and our entire eco-systems. A standout effort in the organic cotton movement is to use growing systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture.
Organic cotton promotes safe work & better livelihoods
Growing organic cotton keeps farmers’ and their families’ safety. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers grow more than one crop which supplements their food and income.
Organic cotton reduces the environmental footprint
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.
