Organic Cotton growing has low Impact on the Environment
Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. These toxins can be deadly for the farmers, the factory workers, us as consumers and the wildlife ecosystems. For example, these pesticides have been known to affect important bee colonies in the farm fields. In addition to chemicals, conventionally grown cotton uses intensive irrigation which means it's one of the largest water users among agricultural crops.
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. It doesn´t use GM seeds, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, use 71% less water and build biologically diverse agriculture. An organic farm produces 94% fewer carbon emissions than conventional.
