The Case for Organic Cotton
Cotton is a wonderful fabric. It breathes, feels great on your skin, and creates a beautiful garment.
But when grown conventionally, it requires lots of insecticides, not to mention pesticides, and sucks up a ton of water.
The better alternative: organic cotton, which is grown without pesticides or insecticides. Additionally, organic cotton requires 10% of the water needed to grow non-organic cotton.
Organic cotton prevents water contamination, protects the land and conserves water.
Fortunately, a number of our designers are using organic cotton to create beautiful shirts, tops, dresses and jeans (see below).
Consider trying something organic. It’ll feel and look as good as conventional cotton, but without the wear and tear on the planet.
