Why Organic Cotton?
Naturally Processed - The processing of regular cotton often uses a large amount of hazardous substances such as heavy metals, chlorine, and chemical dyes. Even after washing, the finished products still have a trace amount of these chemicals and can cause serious skin allergies. Organic cotton processors use safer, natural or water-based dyes and peroxide for whitening; resulting in a softer and more hypoallergenic product.
Eco Friendly - Perhaps the most important benefit is protecting the ecosystem. Organic cotton farmers regularly grow other crops on the same land in a process known as crop rotation. This leads to healthier crops by returning nutrients to the soil and retaining water longer, requiring less irrigation. Regular cotton is grown in the same soil over and over again, degrading the soil quality, removing nutrients, and leading to unhealthy crops. Since these crops require more water, they are heavy irrigated which leads to more water being wasted and fertilizers seeping into the ground water supply.
Ethically Grown - To ensure a safer environment for the farmers and workers, organic cotton is made from non-genetically modified seeds and do not require use of pesticides or harmful chemicals. The pests are controlled with insects that kill the pests. As a result, organic cotton products are safer for the skin. Regular cotton farming starts with seeds that are modified to build resistance to bugs, but when the bugs become stronger, more pesticides are required.
