Cotton or Organic Cotton?
Cotton has always been preferred to synthetic materials, natural material more breathable, cotton is softer and easier to maintain but, unfortunately, it is not necessarily healthier because it undergoes many chemical treatments during its culture. So let's see why it is preferable to choose Organic Cotton.
The difference between cotton and organic cotton can be noticed on two essential points, the environmental aspect and the consequences on health.
Cotton or organic cotton, what impact on the environment?
The cultivation of conventional cotton requires the use of many fertilizers and a significant consumption of water. Cotton cultivation alone represents 25% of the pesticides used in the world, while cotton fields only represent 2.5% of the cultivated surface of the earth.in addition, the purchase of fertilizers represents a major source of expenditure and debt for producers.
Organic cotton, on the other hand, is grown without chemical fertilizers, without GMOs, is more resistant and can therefore be grown without pesticides. It also requires 50% less watering. For an optimized culture, the producers use natural fertilizers like compost. its cultivation preserves the environment by preserving the quality of soil and water.
