Our new customers still have a lot of questions about the fabrics of organic cotton clothing. This article is the answer to our most frequently asked question. Come and find out with us.
From the vegetables in the refrigerator to the clothes in the closet, the organically grown crops are grown with GMO-free seeds, following the practices of keeping the soil healthy, saving water and supporting biodiversity. Therefore, organic clothing is clothing made from organic cotton fibers.
When it comes to organic cotton and cotton, the difference is in yield. Conventional cotton uses 15% of the world's pesticides. The certified organic cotton cultivation prohibits the use of toxic chemicals, pesticides and GMOS. In other words, pure organic cotton is better for farmers, consumers and all living things.
Let us list some basic organic cotton facts: non-GMO, pesticide-free, low-water crops. Organic cotton starts with non-GMO (genetically modified organism) seeds that are grown without toxic chemicals, pesticides, or pollutants that are harmful to farmers and the ecosystem.
Organic cotton is grown mainly with rainwater instead of irrigation water. If these standards are met, the cotton is certified organic. Our cotton is certified 100% pure organic cotton.
Organic cotton uses much less water and usually uses a more sustainable type of water called "green water." Green water uses rain water, not irrigation water (in contrast, "blue water" is drawn from lakes, streams, glaciers and snow). Overall, organic cotton uses 88% less water than conventional cotton.
In fact, there is really no big difference in the feel. The only way to know if it is made of pure organic cotton is to read the fabric detail label inside the garment. But when the same solid color clothes have stains, pure organic cotton is easier to remove stains than clothes made of ordinary cotton.
