10 Reasons to Choose Organic Cotton

 

For over 20 years, we have used only 100% organic cotton. Here's why...

 Ten Reasons to Choose Organic Cotton Clothing

 

Better for People

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: skip the chemicals
Skip the Chemicals

Conventional cotton uses 16%-25% more pesticides and herbicides than any other crop. Some of these chemicals are among the most deadly in the world. 

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: kind to sensitive skin
Kind to Skin

Organic cotton is the best choice for people with sensitive skin, allergies, and chemical sensitivities.

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: lasting softness
Lasting Softness

Organic cotton is softer and more durable—going through less processing, with no chemicals to weaken fibers. Your clothes feel better and last longer.

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: health of farmers and their families
Farmers' Health

Organic is better for farmers and their families. They deserve to live free of toxic, carcinogenic chemicals.

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: safe, eco-friendly dyes
Safe Dyes

Organic cotton is colored with safe, low-impact dyes, and free of all finishing chemicals like formaldehyde.

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: often fair trade
Fair Trade

Our organic cotton farmers are paid a fair price. At a time when global cotton prices are plummeting and cotton farmers around the world are taking their own lives in desperation, fair trade is the only ethical solution. If a cotton product seems outrageously cheap, then you know someone else has paid the price.

 

Better for the Earth

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: prevent CO2, greenhouse gasses
Prevent Greenhouse Gases

Organic cotton produces around 46% less CO2e compared to conventional cotton. By crafting our clothing from 100% organic cotton, last year alone INDIGENOUS kept 45,600 lbs of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere!

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: cleaner waterways
Cleaner Waterways

Runoff from conventional cotton fields is bad news. Choosing organic keeps deadly chemicals out of waterways and off the land.

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: encourage biodiversity
Promote Biodiversity

Organic cotton uses less water and encourages biodiversity. Growers typically use more rainwater for irrigation and rely on beneficial insects to control unwanted pests. To promote biodiversity even more, try out our PURE Collection, in which all clothing is dye-free, with natural shades of organic cotton and free-range alpaca wool. 

Reasons to choose organic cotton clothing: all natural
All-Natural

When you choose organic cotton instead of synthetic fibers, you ensure that no micro-plastics are entering waterways through your everyday laundering. Plus, organic cotton is completely biodegradable.
