Why Organic Cotton?
 
 
WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON & WHY IS IT BETTER? 

  • Organic cotton is grown with minimal impact on the environment.

    Organic production replenishes and maintains soil fertility, and reduces the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers and builds biologically diverse agriculture!*


  • Organic cotton uses NO harmful chemicals.

    Conventional cotton uses approximately 84 million pounds of pesticides each year!*

  • Organic cotton uses NO synthetic fertilizers.

    Conventional cotton uses over 2 billion pounds of synthetic fertilizer every year!*
    Cotton uses more pesticides than any other crop (in fact, visitors to conventional cotton farms
    are frequently asked to wear a clean suit for safety).


  • Organic cotton uses NO carcinogenic pesticides.

    The Environmental Protection Agency considers 7 of the 15 pesticides used on conventional cotton in the U.S. to be "possible" or "known" carcinogenic (cancer-causing) agents!*

  •  It takes about 1/3 of a pound of chemicals (pesticides and fertilizers) to grow enough conventional cotton for one T-shirt!*
  • Organic cotton is the purest and softest for baby.

  • * Cotton facts from the Organic Trade Association Fiber Council.
