Have you cottoned on!? There are many reasons to choose organic cotton rather than the conventional – the planet, wildlife, workers welfare and for you.
- It loves your skin-
no more toxic pesticide residues in your clothes and personal care products. Organic cotton keeps your skin and your body from these harsh chemicals.
- It supports wildlife-
keeping the air water ways clean protects birds, animals and bees from poisonous chemicals, so you are looking out for all creatures big and small.
- It looks after workers-
certified organic cotton is fairly traded because it regulated. This assures safe working conditions and rights and pays a fair wage, helping to support cotton workers and their families.
- It protects the health of others-
toxic pesticides used in conventional farming can travel up to 25 miles in the air and water streams, causing health problems such as poisoning infertility and birth defects. Organic agriculture keeps damaging chemicals away from cotton workers in the fields and protects communities nearby.
- It takes care for environment-
conventional cotton is the most heavily pesticide spread crop. It uses a massive 16% of the world’s insecticides and puts greenhouse gases by avoiding pesticides. Organic farming not only keeps the air cleaner, but actually removes CO2 from the atmosphere thanks to health fertile soil.
