: Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and fertilizers, unlike conventional cotton, which uses 25% of the world's insecticides and 10% of the world's pesticides. For instance, it takes roughly a third of a pound of pesticides and fertilizers to grow enough cotton for just one T-shirt.
-Better for human health
: Organic farming prevents farmers and the local population from being exposed to hazardous chemicals. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 7 of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton in the year 2000, in the United States, as "possible", "likely", "probable", or "known" human carcinogens.
-Better for the environment
: Organic farming prevents soil erosion, protects air and water quality for plants and animals, and preserves species biodiversity through crop rotation.
-Safer product especially for a baby's sensitive skin
: Clothing or toys made from organically grown cotton are free of much of the harmful chemical content present in conventionally grown cotton. Bleaches, formaldehyde, and other chemical finishes are also used in non-organic textile manufacturing. Even after washing a cotton shirt many times, chemical traces remain.
