What is organic cotton? April 2, 2009

So, one of the first questions I get every single time I introduce myself in a crowd is – what does organic cotton mean…- Why? What is that?

So, I’ve decided to define what this actually is:

Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a LOW impact on the environment – which means that it is better for the planet!  Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture – helping keep the soil rich, fresh, and easy for crops to grow! Certified organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production to ensure that there are no chemicals or pesticides added to the process – to help keep it in check! Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. In addition, federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming – so NOTHING IS genetically modified!

Clean Cotton!
