Organic Cotton 101

Buying organic is top of mind when it comes to organic food and cleaning products, but what about your clothing? 

According to Cotton Inc., 60% of women's clothing contains cotton fibers, and 75% of men's clothing contains cotton fibers. It's soft, hypoallergenic and breathable, making it the natural fiber choice for everything from clothing to sheets and towels. The downside of cotton? A shocking less than one percent of all cotton grown is organic. 

Choosing organic materials, like cotton, means that the materials are grown in a way that uses methods and materials that lessen the impact on the planet. Crops aren't treated with GMO's or chemical pesticides that are toxic for farm workers, consumers, and wildlife eco-systems. They also use growing methods and techniques that are better for the earth - they maintain soil fertility and help build diverse agricultural ecosystems. And, they use way less water. That's something we can get behind.
