Organic cotton is produced according to organic agricultural standards. The most important fact is that organic practices prohibit the use of ‘agrichemicals’ (artificial pesticides and fertilizers) and genetically modified (GM) seed.
Organic cotton is produced in such a way that it sustains the health of ecosystems, soils, and people. This type of cotton relies on ecological processes, biodiversity, and locally adapted inputs in place of chemical inputs, which can harm both the farmer involved and our environment.
The production of organic cotton involves tradition, innovation, and science. And all of this to benefit the environment and promote good quality of life.
No such concrete health benefits can be associated with wearing clothes crafted with organic cotton.
However, there are significant dissimilarities between organic and conventional cotton when it comes to how the cotton is grown (without toxic or persistent chemicals). This definitely has a better impact on you in the long run.
Brands and retailers who market organic cotton products should be willing to provide proof of any product claims. Standards, verified by an independent third-party, are often the best way to provide such evidence.
Several standards can support your claim of organic cotton from farm to finished garments like Organic Content Standard (OCS) and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
Organic cotton is grown using techniques and materials that are environment-friendly. A significant effort in the organic movement is to use growing systems that replenish and maintain soil fertility, all the while promoting biologically diverse agriculture.
Organic cotton uses far less water too. The primary benefit of organic cotton is that the seeds used are natural and not GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). The crops aren’t treated with harmful insecticides and pesticides either.
Organic cotton helps in the preservation of the environment.
