What is Organic Cotton?
Organic cotton, increasingly featured in conversations about sustainable fashion, is a type of cotton cultivated without the use of artificial pesticides, fertilisers, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It offers an eco-friendly alternative to conventional cotton, known for its intensive pesticide and fertiliser use and enormous water consumption.
Benefits of Organic Cotton
Choosing organic cotton has many advantages for both consumers and the environment. For consumers, organic cotton is softer and more comfortable to the touch, and its natural fibres are gentler on the skin, making it an ideal material for t-shirts, hoodies, and bags. Furthermore, due to the natural cultivation process, organic cotton doesn't contain the harmful chemicals that can be present in conventional cotton.
For the environment, organic cotton cultivation has numerous benefits. Primarily, it consumes less water and energy compared to conventional cotton. Additionally, organic farming practices such as composting and crop rotation help to maintain soil health and fertility, protecting it from erosion and degradation.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the leading worldwide certification standard for textiles made from organic fibres. This certification ensures that a product is made of at least 70% organic fibres, and also meets rigorous criteria for the ecological production process, social responsibility, and safety and hygiene at work.
