What is Organic Cotton?

It is impossible to imagine a world without cotton products. Our undergarments, outerwear, workout clothing, bathrobes, beach towels, bath towels, kitchen towels, bedsheets, tablecloths, napkins you name it. Although new fabrics are being developed, cotton is never out of fashion. It is timeless, most trusted, and comfortable.

Organic Cotton is The Safest Choice

Cotton is still the number one choice but our good old friend is not that innocent. 100% cotton is thought to be the safest choice, but there are some shocking facts about conventional cotton. For instance, according to Organic Trade Association (OTA), conventional cotton uses 2.03 billion pounds of synthetic fertilizers per year. It also uses 25% of the world’s insecticides and 84 million pounds of pesticides per year.

Conventional Cotton vs Organic Cotton

Unlike, conventional cotton, organic cotton is a safe and healthy choice. It offers all the benefits without the negative side effects of conventional cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic chemicals that are harmful to our health and the environment.

Organic Cotton Clothing

Organic Cotton is Eco-Friendly

Organic cotton does not only saves lives but also protects the environment. According to the definition agreed by the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) at its April 1995 meeting in Orlando, FL, organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.
