With the terrible environmental situation that we’re in, innovation when it comes to fashion fabrics is very important. Producing organic cotton is definitely one way of doing that. Advantages of organic cotton are diverse, so it makes a lot of sense to use it going forward.
Organic cotton – sustainable textiles are important for the future
One of the major advantages are going to be the diminished use of pesticides and herbicides, which are very taxing on the ecosystem.
Other advantage that you might be more interested in is the fact that organic cotton has proved to be softer and healthier on the skin. Untreated cotton has been reported by those who use it to be softer feeling than cotton which has been treated. Of course this is subjective, and you might not feel the difference at all, but the health benefits of not wearing pesticide treated clothes are valid. What you should be glad to hear though is the decrease in the use of pesticide which are seriously threatening important animal species like the bee and bumblebees, which are very important for the spread of pollen. A simple low-tech solution for a highly beneficial high tech future. What more could you need.
