Conventional Cotton isn’t so pure

– Conventional cotton farming is one of the most environmentally unfriendly crops worldwide.

– Conventional cotton growing uses up to 25% of the world’s pesticides, putting about one third of a pound in every t-shirt you own.

– 24% of the world’s insecticide use—worth $2.6 billion—goes into cotton production.

– Insecticides and pesticides then seep deep into the soil, contaminating both the soil and nearby ground, surface and drinking water.

– Of the fifteen known pesticides and herbicides used in the production of conventionally grown cotton, seven of them have been labeled “possible,” “likely,” “probable,” or “known” carcinogens including: acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos, and trifluralin according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

WHY ORGANIC COTTON

Organic cotton is grown and processed without the use of pesticides, insecticides, defoliants, or artificial fertilizers, or dioxin-producing bleach. The general idea is to grow and harvest and process crops without damaging the ecosystem

Creating a pure, natural environment is a vital decision for a growing number of people.Since we expose to pollutants in many aspects of life, choosing organic fibers is another step towards natural living, both for us as well as our environment.
