The Future of Cotton: Color, Purity & Ecology
Sep 24th, 2015 - contributed by Emily Roberts

Natural organic cotton for eco friendly clothingYou picture a fuzzy white ball, right? Or rows and rows of plants, all the same, soaking up water, sun, and pesticides. You might even think of the cotton farmers in India, never able to make enough to pay back their creditors. Slaves to their fields.

That’s not the kind of cotton we’re talking about. And those are not our cotton farmers. That system is unsustainable, bound to fail the earth and fail its people. Exploiting everyone and everything it comes into contact with. What we’re talking about is something entirely different: organic Peruvian cotton, in many colors. And that makes all the difference.
