Why organic cotton is important

Organic cotton is a healthier choice for growers and for the environment.

Conventional cotton farming uses more insecticides than any other crop. It uses an awful lot of pesticides too. In fact, cotton production is responsible for approximately 5% of global pesticide use and 10% of insecticide use.

It’s no secret that pesticides and insecticides (aka killing chemicals) are bad for people and bad for ecosystems. They are linked to cancer in everyone and developmental defects in children. They kill and injure farmers, their families and communities. 

It’s not just about killing chemicals though. 

Because organic farmers are able to save their own seeds, they are not dependent on industrial agricultural companies or compelled to grow GM crops.

Organic cotton means healthier, more resilient farming communities and ecosystems.
