What is organic cotton?

Making sustainable choices when it comes to clothing is not always simple, especially when you're a busy parent and kids get through clothes so quickly. Looking for clothes which use GOTS certified organic cotton is a good place to start.

Standard cotton is one of the most popular fabrics to make clothes out of but it has a nasty track record when it comes to sustainability. Here I'll share some of the benefits of organic cotton and why it's a good swap to make if you're trying to make your home greener and your shopping habits more eco-friendly.

What is organic cotton?

  • Organic cotton is grown, harvested and processed in a way that is better for people and the planet
  • It is mostly watered by rainwater which preserves local water supplies
  • Farmers use natural farming methods to create healthy soil which helps to combat climate change by storing carbon dioxide
  • Toxic fossil-fuel based pesticides are not allowed which protects local wildlife and people
  • Farmers are paid fairly and can diversify their farms so that they don't rely on big businesses for their income
  • No nasty chemicals are used in the manufacturing process which makes organic cotton gentle on delicate skin
