What is Organic Cotton?
Organic cotton is an ecological material, cultivated without pesticides, insecticides, chemical fertilisers nor GMO. The recycled version allows a preservation of the earth’s resources, and to reuse the cotton which is already produced. The material keeps all of its qualities, nevertheless.
Produced and certified to organic agricultural standards, its production sustains the health of soil, ecosystems and its people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Its farming combines tradition, innovation, and science to benefit the shared environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved. It has less impact on the air and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supplies, which contributes to an ethical and fair production process.
