What’s the difference between normal cotton and organic cotton?Updated 2 years ago

The cotton trade is a dangerous one. The industry, quite literally, grows on toxicity. Chemicals are used in production, farmers ingest the chemicals and their health suffers the consequences. It’s not a profitable one either. With no profit and a lack of good health, the suicide rate is at an all time high – ten cotton-related suicides a day in India.

Organic cotton means no toxicity. That goes for all definitions of the word. It currently makes up 1.5% of the entire cotton industry globally. We’d like to make this the new normal which is why organic cotton is the only cotton we’ll ever use.
