What is organic cotton and where does it come from?

More and more we hear things like organic, recycled or recyclable, … Even when choosing our clothes. There are already several brands that offer us garments from sustainable and environmentally friendly origins. Choosing this type of clothing over other more "conventional" makes us feel better. We are taking care of the planet while enjoying fashion. Also in our minds, as consumers, when we hear words like "ecological", we imagine that this fabric is better, more natural, more resistant, more, more, more...

Well, all that glitters is not always gold. Today we are going to tell you a little about organic cotton and the certificates that exist to authenticate its origin.

El organic cotton It is grown in subtropical countries such as Turkey, India or China and one of the main characteristics is that the seeds or plants have not been genetically modified. In addition, during the growth process no pesticides or agricultural chemical fertilizers not allowed by the organic certification have been used.

The certification GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is one of the strictest when granting its certificate. Well, for the product label to contain the acronym GOTS, it must contain at least 95% certified organic fibers.

Likewise, organic cotton crops and the centers for their subsequent treatment are usually responsible not only for the environment, but also for the social impact they have on the territory. The people who hire in these industries work in conditions focused on achieving their well-being and personal development.
