We love to use natural, organic and recycled fabrics that look and feel incredible, with a reduced environmental impact. One of our favourite fabrics is Organic Cotton.
Non-organic cotton is one of the most treated crops on the planet.For 1 pound of raw cotton in the US, 1/3 pounds of synthetic fertilizers are used. 1 pound of raw cotton is roughly used to make a single t-shirt. In just one year in 2011, more than 2.03 billion pounds of synthetic fertilisers were used in the US alone. Conventional cotton also utilises between 3 and 5 times more energy to produce than organic cotton.
Organic cotton is superior to conventional cotton in terms of increasing biodiversity, mitigating climate change by elimination of intensive fertilizers, reducing water contamination and consumption, preserving soil quality and reducing energy requirements. It’s also very soft on your skin making it good for you and good for nature.
