Organic cotton means healthier soils, cleaner water, and safer conditions for farm workers. Since it’s hand-weeded and fertilized naturally, organic cotton helps keep soil healthy and viable. With organic cotton farming, there are no chemical fertilizers and synthetic pesticides, so there’s also less soil and water contamination.
Skipping the chemicals helps protect workers, too, especially the ones who pick cotton by hand. Plus, organic cotton tends to produce a higher-quality, more pure material—beefing up its durability so it doesn't need to be replaced as often.
