While cotton is a natural fibre that can biodegrade at the end of its life, it is also one of the most environmentally demanding crops. Our use of conventional cotton comes at huge and unnecessary cost: growing cotton unsustainably, with massive inputs of water and pesticides, has already been responsible for the destruction of large-scale ecosystems and the deteriorating health and livelihoods of people living there.
WHY CHOOSE ORGANIC COTTON
Organic cotton is grown without harmful chemicals, leaving the soil, air and water free from contaminates that cause harm. Organic cotton produces around 46% less CO2e compared to conventional cotton. It also uses far less water to grow since organic cotton growers typically utilize rain far more than irrigation.
