Comfort and knowing that we are helping preserve the environment are good motivations to go organic. It is wise to know about sustainable fabrics so to make the right choices when we shop.

To produce organic cotton the crops are grown using eco-conscious methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, the cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilisers. The ultimate goal is to build biologically diverse agriculture.

Different certification organisations verify organic productions. In addition, organic growth regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming. Organic farming practices cultivate and enrich the land.

Regular cotton uses a vast amount of chemical pesticides and fertiliser: a third of a pound for just one nonorganic cotton t-shirt.

As the textile Industry adapts and manufacturers and retailers commit to research and  produce environmentally sound and healthy garments, the consumer is left with task of finding and deciding which natural fabrics are right their families.

Regular cotton is one of the most popular and comfortable fabrics yet it’s also one of the least eco-friendly when grown using non-organic methods.

Some cotton is genetically engineered to produce its own pesticide inside of the plant. Scientists tinker with the plant’s genetic makeup in a way that could never occur in nature to create mini pesticide factories inside of the plants. Other genetically engineered varieties are designed to withstand high doses of weed-killing chemicals, ones that would normally kill the plants. Since the glyphosate—the pesticide of choice for cotton growers—is systemic, the chemicals drawn up inside of the plant.

The pesticides used on cotton harm people, wildlife, and the environment. Many of the most hazardous pesticides in the market, including broad-spectrum organophosphates and carbamate pesticides, are sprayed on cotton fields. These chemicals have been linked to certain cancers, childhood brain tumors, ADHD, autism, and poor motor skills in children, making it harder for them to use scissors, tie shoes, or even hold a pencil.

A 2002 study investigating pesticide illnesses in California ranked cotton as the third-worst offender for sickening workers (just behind grapes and oranges). In the U.S. and around the world, cotton grown with chemicals has been responsible for hundreds of thousands of fish deaths, Australian beef contamination, and bird deaths.

Switching to organic cotton helps protect rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds from toxic chemical runoff. Organic cotton insures your soft, caressing fabrics are grown without the use of GMO (genetically modified organisms) seeds and chemical fertilisers that create dead zones that rob fish of oxygen, too.

The development of non-toxic dyes has resulted in brighter healthier colours, organic cotton is now a fashionable choice.

The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification tag assures the purchaser that from seed to field, from processing to manufacturing, sustainable practices are used.

The World Health Organisation estimates 20,000 deaths annually due to pesticide poisoning in developing countries.

A field must remain pesticide-free for three years and the cotton harvested by international organic standards in order for cotton to be certified organic. Organic cotton farming has a lower carbon footprint than traditional cotton farming, as organic farming uses less energy and fuel, emits fewer greenhouse gases into the air and reduces water consumption and toxic run-off. Organic farmers forgo the use of pesticides to control harmful insects, and instead use beneficial predator insects and old-fashioned techniques such as trap cropping to lure insects away from the cotton.

Planting several crops together (intercropping) helps control pests, and, if necessary,organic farmers use approved organic pesticides like Bt and neem oil to protecttheir cotton crops. Covering crops with leguminous matter and implementing crop rotations sustain fertility and keep the soil healthy and nutrient rich. Organic cotton farmers use traditional mechanical devices such as hoes and flame weeders

 

Organic cotton is typically hand-harvested and often hand-spun. This fabric’s production is on the rise and, according to the Organic Trade Association, comprises 0.76 percent of global cotton production.

The eco-friendly status of cotton can easily be displaced once the finishing process begins, as certain companies inevitably end up bleaching or dying the fabric, creating a product that is toxic and anything but eco-friendly. Be sure to purchase organic cotton in its natural shades of cream, tan, light brown or pale green, or organic fabric that has been dyed using vegetable or natural based dyes.
