13 Reasons Why Organic Cotton is Great for You

13 Reasons Why Organic Cotton is Great for You

Cotton is a natural fiber that has been used in textile production for centuries, popular because it is lightweight, breathable, and easily absorbs dyes. Traditional cotton production uses a large amount of water, pesticides and other chemicals, which affects biodiversity, soil, water and your body. Organic cotton has a lower environmental impact and is a better option than traditional cotton because it uses less water and other sustainable ways to improve soil conditions and combat pests.
  1. High-quality clothing: Organic cotton is often softer and of higher quality than conventionally grown cotton, since it is not treated with harsh chemicals during production.  Your clothes feel softer and last longer because the chemicals don't weaken the fibers. 

  2. Kind to the largest organ in your body: Organic cotton is a great option if you have sensitive skin or allergies since it's free of chemicals. 
     
  3. Healthier farming communities: Organic cotton farmers and their families are not exposed to the potentially harmful chemicals used in conventional cotton farming.

  4. Safer working conditions: Organic cotton farming requires less use of chemical pesticides and other hazardous materials, which means safer working conditions for farmers and workers.

  5. Animal friendly: Organic cotton is typically grown using natural methods that are animal friendly, such as crop rotation and use of natural fertilizers.

  6. Environmental benefits: Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful chemicals, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers. This helps reduce the environmental impact of cotton production. 

  7. Improved soil health: Organic cotton farming practices promote soil health by allowing soil microorganisms to thrive, which helps maintain soil fertility and reduce erosion.

  8. Reduced water usage: Organic cotton farming practices use less water than conventional cotton farming, since the soil is able to retain more moisture, and keep out the chemicals from the water. 

  9. No genetically modified organisms (GMOs): Organic cotton is grown without the use of genetically modified seeds or organisms.

  10. Supports local economies: Buying organic cotton supports local economies and small-scale farmers who practice sustainable farming methods.

  11. Reduce carbon footprint: Organic cotton farming practices, which rely on natural methods rather than fossil-fuel based chemicals, have a lower carbon footprint than conventional cotton farming.

  12. Reduce micro-plastic waste: Choosing organic cotton prevent micro-plastics from washed synthetic fabrics from ending in water, soil, animals and, eventually on our table.  

  13. Vegan Dyes: Some organic cotton producers also use safe printing inks.  Our provider use Kornit Water-based and NeoPigment inks that are Oeko-Tex™ certified for printing, which means they're safe to print on clothes and reduce environmental waste.
