- 100% Organic Cotton
- Farm to Yarn Series
Farm to Yarn Series - Volcom followed more than 20 tons of certified organic cotton from seed to sample in order to deliver you traceable Farm to Yarn products.
In partnership with the purpose driven company Cotton Connect, the Volcom crew drove deep into their supply chain and helped support a Farmer Business Training School in Maharashtra and a Gender Training Program empowering the roles of women in Madhya Pradesh, India. These efforts will allow farmers and their families to flourish by supporting their shift and continued commitment to organic farming methods.
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.
