Are you wondering what exactly is "organic cotton"? If so, you are not alone. Thousands if not millions of people who love organic foods, eco-friendly products and a sustainable environment are wondering the same things.
I found this article on the web during the course of my research which should help all us learn about organic cotton and become an educated consumer.
"Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. In addition, federal regulations prohibit the use of genetically engineered seed for organic farming. All cotton sold as organic in the United States must meet strict federal regulations covering how the cotton is grown."
