Why Organic Cotton?
Non-organic cotton has been dubbed the ‘world’s dirtiest crop’, however, the story for organic cotton is very different.
According to The Soil Association, here are some reasons we should switch to organic cotton:
It helps to combat climate change by working with nature and not against it; helps preserve and protect water supplies; helps sustain small-scale farmers who can grow crops alongside their cotton to feed their families; It also takes seed supply from the hands of GM companies and into the hands of organic farmers themselves; eliminates the use of synthetic and often toxic pesticides. This protects the farmer, soil, wildlife and wider environment.
