First of all: What is organic cotton?
Organic cotton is a type of cotton that is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture.
Farmers who grow organic cotton are looking to produce a more sustainable product with regard to the health of their fields, water supply, and the air. The difference between Organic Cotton and Conventional Cotton is that in “conventional cotton” growers have the full array of tools at their disposal, whether it’s insecticides to ward off pests or synthetic fertilizers to maximize yield per acre grown. Also, growers of conventional cotton utilize genetically modified seed, engineered to be herbicide and insect resistant.
Why should everyone choose Organic Cotton?
These are the four main reasons:
Organic cotton has no toxic substances in its composition. This makes the garments softer and more breathable, making them ideal for sensitive skin, babies or young children. This is very important for children to grow up healthy, strong and comfortable.
The fiber resistance in organic cotton is greater than in industrial cotton. That means that the garments are more durable and resistant because no aggressive chemicals or artificial bleaching agents have been used in the organic cotton production process. So, when you buy a garment made with organic cotton, you know that it will last much longer and it will be much more resistant. It is ideal for the little boys and girls to play, sing, dance, stain and be free!
When buying organic cotton, you know that the job of the workers was under decent conditions. In addition, no toxic substances are used in their production system, so workers are also not exposed to substances harmful to their health.
Organic cotton garments benefit the environment, respect resources, reduce contamination of the soil, air and water. Also, the cultivation of organic cotton is a sustainable form of production and economy, because it favors small farmers over large cotton production systems.
For all these reasons, consuming organic cotton is so important for our children and the environment. Creating a healthy planet is up to us.
