Why Organic?

Good for Your Baby's Health

  • Babies are more vulnerable to health problems often associated with the chemicals found in conventional cotton.
  • Even after washing, traces of chemicals that are harmful to skin and health still remain in conventional cotton clothing.
  • We protect our children in so many ways, it only makes sense to start with what we put next to their skin.

 

Good for Your Health

  • It is cultivated without the use of harmful toxins or synthetic fertilizers.
  • The World Health Organization has determined that three of the most hazardous insecticides to human health rank in the top ten most commonly used in cotton production.
  • One pound of raw cotton (about the amount in a t-shirt) takes almost one-third of a pound of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers to grow.

 

Good for the Environment

  • Organic cotton is grown using biodynamic farming and natural methods such as composting.
  • Organic agriculture uses less water, does not rely on expensive fertilizers and pe sticides, and helps sequester carbon in the soil.
  • Organic farming prevents soil erosion, protects air and water quality for plants and animals, and preserves biodiversity through crop rotation.

 

Good for Our Global Community

  • Strict certification guidelines ensure that organic cotton provides a fair livelihood for people in disadvantaged communities.
  • Organic cotton doesn't use chemicals that often seep into ground water, making it toxic for humans and animals.
  • Organic farming protects farmers and their surrounding communities from being exposed to the carcinogenic chemicals used in conventional crop production methods.
