Harmful Pesticides
Conventional cotton is considered the world's dirtiest crop because of its heavy use the most hazardous of pesticides.  So, anyone working these cotton fields is exposed to seriously harmful toxins. Even worse, these chemicals can seep into the farming community’s water supply.

No Toxins
Organic cotton is grown without any toxic and persistent pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

More Water, More Energy
Non-organic cotton plants need intense irrigation and thus more energy is used
to water crops. Some estimates claim conventional cotton crops use the largest amounts of water among
all agricultural crops.

50% Less Energy
Organic farming uses 50% less energy than conventional farming. Plus, organic cotton uses far less water too

Harmful to Your Health
People feel the harmful effects of non-organic cottons and fabrics in their daily lives. Irritated skin, rashes, even headaches and dizziness can be caused by the chemical residue trapped in conventional cotton threads.

Softer, Stronger, Safer
Besides quality-of-life benefits from organic cotton, quality of the clothing is also substantially higher.  Organic cotton plants yield longer-stable fibers which makes a stronger yarn and thus a more durable fabric.  Toxin-free long-stable cotton is more breathable and feels softer and more luxurious to your skin.
