Q: Why buy organic cotton?

A: When certified organic items from food to yarn are grown without the cancer causing chemicals or added GMOs that come with conventional crops it makes our environment the way it should be as it was before the industrial revolution and before big agriculture. The less chemicals in our environment and in our bodies the better chance the human race has to survive. According to the Organic Trade Association organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. In addition, federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming. All cotton sold as organic in the United States must meet strict federal regulations covering how the cotton is grown.
