Why Organic Cotton is a Better Choice for your ECONIC Story.
At Econic Apparel, we only use GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton fibers in our manufacturing process of apparel.
Cotton is one of the most widely grown crops in the world, it can also be the most chemically sprayed crop. The chemicals used on conventionally grown cotton are the most aggravating to the people that tend to the them, the water and the soil itself as reported by the Environmental Protection Agency. The lack of regulation and deaths due to the use of these chemicals in developing countries are increasing every year.
Organic cotton and it’s growing methods have a low impact on the environment. Production processes are in place to replenish and maintain soil fertility and reduce the use of toxic pesticides and to build a strong biodiverse agriculture. Federal regulations also prohibit the use of GMO seeds for organic farming and you’ll be pleased to know that all cotton sold in Canada and the United States must meet strict federal regulations on how cotton is grown.
Econic apparel is unique in that we only manufacture our apparel using 100% certified organic cotton in the creation of our tee shirts, long sleeve tee shirts and blended fibre apparel options. For instance, you may want a softer look and feel for your tee shirt program so you could opt for our 50% pet recycled polyester combined with 50% organic cotton.
