Conventionally grown cotton is one of the most pesticide-laden agricultural products on the planet. For example, it takes about a half a kilo of pesticides to grow the cotton used for a 3 towel set (bath, hand and face towel). Cotton uses 25% of the world’s insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides (including insecticides, fungicides, miticides, herbicides, defoliants, and growth regulators).
Cotton as a fabric is cool, comfortable, and easy to care for, but conventionally grown cotton has serious flaws. This is why this company has made a deliberate choice to support organic cotton for a greener planet.
