India Cultivation

Why more and more fashion labels and consumers rely on clothing made from organic cotton from the seed hairs of cotton plant produced cotton is the by far most widely used natural fibre for clothing and home textiles. While the term “Natural fibres” deceived a long time about how environment is the conventional cultivation of cotton, green fashion label, environmental organisations and the media have changed significantly the image in recent years. Because “Natural fibres” has to do anything with “Conservation” in this case but in the contrary grown cotton is one of the most polluting agricultural products is traditional at all as E.g. the example of India shows. India is not only the second most populous country in the world, but also the second-largest cotton producer in the world. While the cultivation of cotton in India claimed only a fifth of the agricultural area, more than half of all the pesticides used in the cotton fields at the same time. In addition, which has conventional cotton production nor for an increase in prosperity, but rather catered for social ills.

The background is that the farmers who grow the cotton, first need to borrow money for seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. A large part of or the entire harvest fails once this means often the off for the simple farmers. Against this background, it is little wonder that more and more people no longer close its eyes before the grievances of the textile industry. On the one hand, more and more sustainable cultivation labels conquer the market for years, also the demand is rising on the other side. While at the beginning, especially T-Shirts made from organic cotton brought the green fashion from the eco-niche, the offer is now broad: from ecologically correct Streetwear, underwear, jeans and high fashion to shoes, almost everything is available. Now, even the really big industry such as C & A, or H & M have clothes from organic cotton in the offer. Clothing from organic and fair production is therefore not only for people and environmentalists.

Because even if the destruction of the environment in conventional cultivation in distant developing or emerging economies takes place, the poison in conventionally produced textiles but its way up to the buyer. The garments are residues of plant protection products, as well as the chemical used to dye or the motifs and reach when in contact with the skin. Ecologically produced clothing is not only for the environment and conscience but also for your own health benefit.
