Organic cotton is a natural fiber that does not contain residues of pesticides, insecticides, or other chemicals that are harmful to health and the environment, unlike conventional cotton.
The processing phases of conventional cotton are a key contributor to global pollution and are often accompanied by the exploitation of workers who are employed in the poorest rural areas. In addition, the chemical substances resist washing and are released into the water, posing a risk to people's health.
In the cultivation of organic cotton, organic fertilizers are used instead of chemical ones, resulting in a 46% reduction in the contribution to global warming and a 91% water savings, all with greater respect for working conditions along the production chain.
And the advantages of using organic cotton are not limited to the reduced environmental impact: the cotton is harvested by hand, and the longer and stronger fiber results in softer and more durable garments.
