Cotton is considered the world’s ‘dirtiest’ crop due to its heavy use of insecticides, the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health. Conventional cotton cultivation and cotton cloth production have a negative impact on the environment, as well as farmers and laborers living on the textile industry.
Cotton fields occupy less than 3% of cultivated land in the world, but they consume about 25% of all insecticides and 10% of all herbicides. For the cultivation of cotton, chemical substances that are banned in the food industry are massively used.
Cotton is one of the most genetically modified plants, especially to withstand above-average doses of chemicals.
One kilogram of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are consumed to produce one T-shirt and one denim.
Both the cultivation and the production of biobavlna are forbidden to use toxic chemicals that cause poisoning in agricultural workers and harm to the environment, as well as genetically modified organisms.
Certified farms are seeking to build a biodiversity farming system and maintain soil fertility naturally.
Organic cotton unlike conventionally grown cotton, does not cause allergic reactions. Therefore, it is suitable for children, allergy, eczema and people with sensitive skin.
