Organic cotton is better for the planet and its people

When compared to conventional cotton, organic cotton per 1,000 KG of fibre used in apparel results in:

  1. 46% less CO2 equivalent emissions (which are significant contributors to global warming)
  2. 70% less SO2 (Sulfur Dioxide) equivalent emissions; a driver of soil acidification and, thus acid rain
  3. 26% less PO43 (Phosphate) equivalent; a measure of eutrophication potential (the potential for the creation of aquatic dead-zones)
  4. 62% less primary energy demand (PED), measured in MJ, from non-renewable sources like petroleum and natural gas that depend on fossil resources
  5. The consumption of up to 91% less non-rain water (blue water) while typically requiring less irrigation
