What is organic cotton?
Organic cotton is generally defined as cotton that is grown organically in subtropical countries such as India, Turkey, Bangladesh, and parts of the USA from non-genetically modified plants, and without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides aside from the ones allowed by the certified organic labeling. Its production is supposed to promote and enhance biodiversity and biological cycles. In the United States, cotton plantations must also meet the requirements enforced by the National Organic Program (NOP) from the USDA in order to be considered organic. This institution determines the allowed practices for pest control, growing, fertilizing, and handling of organic crops.
As of 2007, 265,517 bales of organic cotton were produced in 24 countries and worldwide production was growing at a rate of more than 50% per year. In the 2019. season, annual global production reached more than 3.5 million metric.
Organic Baby Clothes Made In The USA
Ethically-made clothing should be the standard in the apparel industry. But what does it mean when a product is ethically made? It means we consider the impact of our actions and let our values guide our decisions as we make our clothing.
Organic cotton is a great example of our efforts to support ethically-made clothing. It drinks less water, uses rainwater more efficiently, eliminates GMOs and harmful chemicals from your closet, and so much more.
We have focused our efforts at providing babies the safest and softest clothes eco-friendly, free from chemicals, pesticides, and contaminants. Organic cotton is the best choice for babies with sensitive skin, allergies, and chemical sensitivities. Baby’s skin is very delicate, making it especially sensitive to environmental pollutants and chemicals which may cause irritated, inflamed skin conditions like Eczema.
By choosing organic cotton clothing over conventional cotton, you are reducing/minimizing the chance of allergic reactions and skin irritations because you know there’s no way that the numerous toxic chemicals used in the production processes are getting anywhere near your little one.
Also, organic cotton is sturdier, and more durable as compared to conventional cotton. It does not break down as easily as regular cotton fibers which undergo chemical processes. In fact, organic cotton clothing can be washed ten times more than its conventional counterpart, which means less need to buy replacements, making it a more cost-effective alternative in the long run.
More reasons to choose organic baby clothes
When you buy organic cotton you are investing in water conservation, cleaner air, better soil and farmer livelihoods. The price for organic cotton is therefore sometimes, but not always, higher. However, with demand on the rise, more choices will become available.
By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may face water shortages. But organic cotton is 80% rain-fed, which reduces pressure on local water sources. The absence of chemicals also means that water is cleaner and safer. Cotton is often grown in water-scarce areas using irrigation and it takes 2,700 liters of water to make a conventional cotton t-shirt.
Organic cotton is grown from organic cotton seeds. Cotton seed oil is used in a variety of food products such as cookies, chips and vegetable oil, and is also fed to livestock. So while cotton fiber is not something we put in our body, the by-product can make its way into our diets.
Caring for the world and the people we share it with is a life choice. Choosing organic cotton baby clothes is part of this choice. By choosing organic cotton baby clothes made in the USA over traditional or imported clothes you have the purchasing power to influence brands, manufacturers and even farmers. So let’s realize the importance of organic cotton and change the world together!
