For cultivation of conventional cotton chemical pesticides and fertilizers are used. 150 grams of toxin are found in every T-shirt.
Furthermore, the cultivation and processing of conventional cotton use scarce drinking water and poison ground water sustainably.
Organic cotton is produced according to the guidelines of organic farming. Genetically modified seeds must not be used. The use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides is prohibited. This improves the health of farmers, and the environmental impact decreases dramatically. By a crop rotation (ie, the organic cotton is cultivated in rotation with other crops) the soil fertility will maintain or even improve. Direct irrigation in the organic variant of the textile fiber saves water.
Especially allergy sufferers and people with eczema have to fear any residues of pesticides and dangerous chemicals.
