Organic Cotton 101: What It Is and Why You Need It

Organic Cotton 101: What It Is and Why You Need It

Posted by The Canningvale Team on 15th Jan 2021

What is organic cotton?

Organic cotton is grown without using synthetic chemicals or genetically modified organisms (GMO). Its production also requires methods and materials that have a less harmful impact on the environment.

What’s the difference between organic and regular cotton?

The methods used in farming, weeding and manufacturing, are the key differences between organic and regular cotton.

Regular cotton farming uses genetically modified seeds to build resistance to pests and uses pesticides to protect the plants while they grow. Organic cotton is grown from natural seeds, without the use of pesticides or chemicals. The cultivation process is less impactful on water quality and biodiversity. 

Organic cotton working alongside the Better Cotton Initiative is the more ethical and sustainable option, as it’s better for the environment, the workers and the community.
