Introduction:Organic cotton growers use sustainable farming methodologies. Than quality control is administered by unbiased third parties to guarantee that certified organic cotton is chemical free and harmful dyes weren't used during the manufacturing process.
Organically grown cotton is one of the world's most sustainable products. You may be assured that when buying certified organic cotton, it is free of pesticides and/or herbicides and formaldehyde. Cultivated or non-organic cotton is fertilized with synthetic fertilizers using at least seven pesticide/herbicide chemicals that are carcinogenic. Alternatively, organic cotton is fertilized with manure.
Crop rotation allows the land to rest, so that minerals will not be depleted.
Adults with skin sensitivities or allergies can wear clothing made of organic cotton without fear of aggravating most dermatological conditions. If you have hyper-sensitive skin, and I do because of fibromyalgia, I'd suggest buying hypoallergenic clothing that is dye-free.
The fabric is breathable, so that it doesn't trap perspiration. Also, this fabric is squishy-soft, which becomes more important as we age.
Organic cotton baby clothing is trending now. We know that babies are born with sensitive skin. Also, keep in mind that this all-natural fiber is pesticide free and is manufactured without dyeing, bleaching or spraying with formaldehyde.
All babies' body systems are developing, making it essential to provide a clean environment to support your child's healthy growth.
Not to mention that baby's soft bottom deserves soft organic cotton diapers. Here again, you'll be contributing to the Green Movement, as opposed to the throw-away plastic diapers, which are clogging up our landfills. Plastic diapers are toxic to the soil and small organisms that live in soil.
By clothing your bed in organic cotton products, you are contributing to the eco-friendly environment. The fabric for your bedding begins with untreated seeds aren't genetically modified and crops that aren't sprayed with toxic pesticides or insecticides or chemical fertilizers.
Experts state that in order to make one tee-shirt from cultivated cotton it takes about 1/3 pound of pesticides. If you can only afford to make one contribution to saving our environment at the moment, consider beginning with organic cotton bedding.
Besides, you'll get a good night's rest when sleeping on these super-soft sheets
Before you sign on the dotted line, ensure your selection is 100% certified organic cotton. Even some of the name brand manufacturers are passing off products that contain a minimal percentage of real organic cotton, blended with commercial fabrics.
A German lab reporting finding genetically modified cotton in around 30% of the samples they tested from India. So be alert when buying organic cotton products made in India. Unfortunately, about 61% of organic cotton is grown in India.
Good list of organic cottons. Why do they have to use so many chemicals today? Organic is so much safer. H5
What a beneficial list for all.Thank you for sharing your wisdom about organic cotton.
My poor six year old grandson has terrible allergies. His skin is always broken out all over with a rash. I am going to tell my daughter to try to find organic cotton clothing for him. I wish it was grown more in the good old USA. Great list.
