When we’re talking about food, organic generally means it’s free from synthetic pesticides or herbicides, which means less harmful chemicals in our bodies and in the environment. Organic cotton follows these same principles — it’s a natural fibre that’s grown sustainably and is free from synthetic chemicals and GMOs. As a holistic style of farming, organic agriculture prioritises the health of the surrounding environment and the people working in that environment — resulting in cleaner waterways, healthier soil and improved air quality for all to enjoy.
