Organic cotton is the responsible alternative to man-made fibers. It helps protect our lands and people from harmful chemicals.
Environmental Impact of Organic Cotton
The cotton grown organically is 80% rain-fed, which reduces pressure on local water sources. The absence of chemicals also means that water is cleaner and safer. Single non-organic cotton t-shirt requires on average 700 gallons of water to produce. Organic cotton uses 91% less water to produce, thanks to healthier soil and less water pollution from run-off.
Reduces Global Warming
Organic farming practices help to sequester carbon in the soil, which actually helps mitigate the effects of climate change and carbon emissions.
Insect and bird life has been found to be as much as 50% greater on organic farms than conventional farms.
Choosing products in sustainable packaging is one way to avoid harmful chemicals and cut back on the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills.
