A Better Cotton for a Better World
Our choices matter. Whether they’re large or small, we go through our days making decisions about work, food, and transportation that affect our lives, the lives of those we love, and the world at large. Decisions about what we wear are no different. Though it may seem like a simple choice, modern clothes are made from an abundance of materials, and each one can have a dramatically different impact on the earth. That’s why choosing organic cotton is such a revolutionary choice. Organic cotton is one of the most sustainable materials available today. And we have chose for you, Organic Peruvian Pima Cotton which is in a class of its own. Not only is it delightfully soft, silky, and free from pesticides, but it also helps create a better tomorrow. Here are a few ways organic cotton helps make the world a better place.
It’s Better for the Environment
Organic cotton is non-GMO and pesticide free. The lack of pesticides means that local bird and insect populations can continue to flourish in an ecosystem free from toxic and persistent pesticides. It also means that the soil organic cotton is grown in remains fertile, ensuring the preservation of biologically diverse agriculture for years to come. Organic cotton also requires upwards of 90% less water than conventional cotton, helping to conserve one of the most vital natural resources on the planet. All in all, organic cotton is the bee’s knees when it comes to caring for the environment, but that’s not all it does!
It Creates Better Jobs
Healthy farming communities are built around organic cotton. When cotton is grown and harvested organically, it’s produced without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides that are harmful to the soil and the farmers themselves. When using organic methods, farmers can work their land without fear or health complications arising from pesticides and herbicides. What’s more, healthy soil means more productive soil, so organic farming techniques help build jobs and communities that can last for generations.
Better Partners for a Brighter Future
For all of these reasons and more, we partner with Bergman Rivera to source organic cotton that is ethically produced and sustainably grown. Bergman Rivera has been working directly with local farmers since 1986. They operate on the belief that organic farming is a better way to both work with and nourish the soil. Bergman Rivera’s partnership with local communities goes deep and includes training and seminars, no-interest rate loans for seeds, and low-interest rates for farm equipment. After all, shouldn’t everyone be able to prosper from their investment in sustainable agriculture?
