what is organic cotton?
Like jute, cotton is a renewable and biodegradable natural fibre. While organic cotton features the same qualities as conventional cotton, there is a significant difference between the two, which lies in the farming process.
Traditional cotton production relies on the use of chemicals and pesticides. These substances contaminate nearby water sources and have a negative impact on both the land where crops are grown and the farmers who tend to them. In contrast, organic cotton is grown without the use of any dangerous pesticides, chemicals, synthetic fertilisers or genetically modified (GM) seeds.
