Traditional cotton is a destructive industry, being the biggest pesticides user.
Cotton is 3% of the crops grown on farms but a quarter of the world’s use for pesticides.
Cotton is a crop grown on farmed land non-genetically modified, and can use companion plants to help its growth.
Unlike regular cotton, organic lacks pesticides used in the process.
