Organic Cotton - Grown without petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides, organic cotton is healthier choice for the Earth, the people working in the fields and for you the consumer.
When compared to conventional cotton, organic cotton per 1,000kg of fiber used in apparel results in:
46% less CO² equivalent emissions (which are significant contributors to global warming)
70% less SO² (Sulfur Dioxide) equivalent emissions; a driver of soil acidification and thus, acid rain.
26% less PO4³ (Phosphate) equivalent; a measure of eutrophication potential (the potential for the creation of aquatic dead-zones)
62% less primary energy demand (PED), measured in MJ, from non-renewable sources like petroleum and natural gas that depend on fossil resources.
The consumption of up to 91% less non-rain water (blue water) while typically requiring less irrigation.
