What is Organic Cotton? And what are the environmental benefits of its use?

Organic cotton is cotton which has been grown from non-genetically modified plants and without the use of pesticides or fertilizers.

This is very relevant because it prevents the use of toxic synthetic chemicals for the most widely grown crop in the world (it covers 2.5% of cultivated world´s land) which is specially intensive in its use. Conventional cotton crops use 10-16% of the world’s pesticides.

Obviously, these chemicals have a disastrous impact on the air, soil and water. Let alone, the impact on the farmer’s health.

Organic Cotton: an ethical choice.

By using organic cotton, we are promoting the growth of a crop which aims to reduce the use of polluting and hazardous chemicals as well as to create a healthier ecosystem. Even though the production of organic cotton is growing every year, currently it only represents 1-2% of global cotton production. Thus, there is still plenty of room for a reduction of the use of these unhealthy toxic chemicals and its environmental impact.

Organic Cotton and GOTS certification.

GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standards is an organization which sets standard requirements through the entire supply chain for ecological and labor conditions in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials. In this, environmental impact as well as labor conditions are the focus*.
