It is clear that we need a positive alternative. This industry is the second largest polluter in the world and working conditions are infamous, both in the cotton fields and in factories.
Why organic cotton?
Conventional cotton farming ruins the environment and for the past 30 years has been a nightmare for millions of farmers.

In the end, all the profits go to the big companies, while the farmers work very hard for nothing. They end up with a sterile and polluted environment and can no longer support their families.
