about organic cotton

Top 5 reasons why organic cotton is better:

  1. Tonnes less chemicals. Cotton represents 3% of the world’s crop but 25% of all chemical insecticide use is on non-organic cotton.(i)
  2. Less foggy brains. Pesticides can cause a range of ill effects in humans, from relatively mild effects such as headaches, fatigue, and nausea, to more serious illnesses.(ii)
  3. Farmers are our friends. Pesticide-related illnesses are a major problem for farmers. Fair trade and organic farming offer a healthier way of life for farmers.
  4. The environment – yeah, kind of important. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility and build biologically diverse agriculture.(iii)
  5. Wears well. Organic cotton actually feels softer than average cotton products. Care goes into producing our organic cotton, so it’s not surprising that it ends up making good quality clothing.
