- What are the advantages of Organic Cotton?
Cotton is grown with the use of pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers. These chemicals are often highly toxic. Some are carcinogens that can harm people and animals as well as the environment. Organic cotton production includes healthier practices to ensure the soil remains healthy. These include maintaining a healthy balance between “pests” and their predators, physical removal of weeds instead of chemicals, and other practices that minimize the use of chemicals and their negative side effects.
