What Makes Organic Cotton Eco-Friendly?
Consider the versatility of cotton; not only is it used for clothing, bed linens, towels and other household items, but it has many other practical uses. While approximately 60% of cotton produced around the world is used for clothing, it is also used in the making of towels, sheets, duvets, kitchen towels, and even blended with other Eco-friendly fabrics to create versatile styles for linens and clothing.
Why organic cotton?
Organically grown cotton has less environmental impact than traditionally grown cotton. Fibers from organically grown cotton are stronger and more durable than traditionally grown fiber that is exposed to chemicals. The organic cotton fiber is not weakened by toxins and thus makes a stronger yarn and a longer lasting material.
It is often debated if the higher cost of organically grown cotton is worth the extra money versus what is paid for traditionally grown cotton. The answer is yes, for multiple reasons. Organically grown cotton is much more durable which will last longer and does not have to be replaced as often. Another reason has to do with the chemicals used to produce traditional cotton. Not only is this bad for your body, but it is also damaging to our environment.
Therefore, organically grown cotton is not only better for the environment but also for your wallet. A wise organic consumer will choose organic cotton when they are purchasing clothing, bedding, towels, and other items.
