Pathetic Brands offers products made from Organic Cotton rather than regular cotton because of its many benefits. Firstly, it is grown naturally which reduces the negative impact on soils and ecosystems. Around 16% of the world’s pesticides are used in Regular Cotton farming every year. The chemicals degrade soil, pollute water systems and poison cotton pickers. Harmful pesticides are not used in the farming of Organic Cotton and Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) are not used.
It takes 2,700 litres of water to produce one Regular Cotton T-Shirt which is enough drinking water to last one person 2.5 years. Organic Cotton requires less irrigation than Regular Cotton which substantially reduces the annual water supply required to produce cotton garments.
It also gives power to farmers to improve their livelihoods while protecting them and your skin from harmful chemicals. It carries less risk to those who suffer from skin problems such as eczema. Check out Organic Cotton T-Shirts.
Organic Cotton is usually more breathable and comfortable to wear. It is soft and keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This material is very durable and providing the care instructions are followed, an Organic Cotton garment will last many seasons.
It is important to check that the Organic Cotton Product you are buying is in-fact what it says it is. You should always look for brands who offer garments produced by certified manufacturers. The certifying organisation to look out for is ‘GOTS’ (Global Organic Textile Standard).
