In accordance with certified organic agriculture standards, the
cultivation process must promote water and air quality, energy
conservation, agricultural biodiversity and healthy soil. It has a lower
impact on the enviroment than traditional cotton-growing methods
and benefits the long-term health of people and the planet.
Federal regulations prohibit the use of toxic
chemicals in organically grown cotton
procedures, causing a reduction in carbon
emissions, which results in cleaner air.
Organic agriculture protects the health of people
and the planet through the use of natural
methods and materials rather than hazerdous
synthetic presticides and other artificial inputs.
By eliminating the use of synthetic pesticides and
herbicides, organic farming protects the local
water supply from potential contamination.
Organically grown cotton is primarily rain-fed,
requiring significantly less water and energy than
traditional cotton-growing techniques.
