Why Organic Cotton?
So you might be wondering what the big deal is with organic cotton? Well a few years ago I probably couldn't have told you myself, but brace yourselves, now I can!
Now this might not seem like the most interesting read, but to me it's that one small step we can take to a better world. Ok, I get it, it means the garment costs slightly more but shouldn't we maybe buy less but buy better?
Conventional cotton relies on pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and genetically modified organisms, all of which cause harm to us, our children, the farmers and to wildlife eco-systems. But Organic cotton uses none of these nasties meaning you help lessen the impact on our environment and enhance the health of humans and animals.
Organic crops don't contaminate the soil ,instead they use beneficial insects to control pests which encourages biodiversity. It has less impact on the air, around 46% less CO2e is produced when compared to the growing of conventional cotton and it uses a whopping 88% less water. I think that's enough facts and figures for now, I mean, at the end of the day most of us care about our planet and our people and we want to help change it for our little sidekicks. Who knows, if we all committed to buying more organic now it might just become the norm for our future generation and you can smile knowing that you helped make that change.....
