Organic Cotton farming protects water quality by not using pesticides and fertilizers that are linked to groundwater contamination, the primary source of drinking water for half of the global population. It also encourages biodiversity by controlling pests with friendly insects rather than multiple applications of toxic chemicals. And babies and children are the most vulnerable to the health risks related to pesticides. Choosing Organic Cotton clothing reduces their exposure to toxic and persistent pesticides on their skin, in soil and water, air and food. For adults with sensitive skin, Organic Cotton enables you to avoid allergens contained in chemically grown and synthetic products. Also, supporting organic agriculture is essential to creating improved working conditions for farm workers.
