What is "greener" - Organic cotton or Recycled Cotton?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am curious what everyone thinks...Organic cotton is way better than conventional cotton but still requires tremendous resources to farm (think how much water is wasted) and still creates a tremendous amount of waste in the production process.

 

Recycled cotton has been recently developed where the cotton waste is processed into recycled cotton material....

I do believe organic cotton is better for the environment.

I wrote an article about organic cotton for baby clothing.

you can read it here:  http://bit.ly/organiccotton

Organic Cottons like Pima Cotton are much better for the environment. They do not use any chemicals in the processing of the fibers. You can feel the difference in the quality of the finished product too. When a cotton is bleached and processed it is not a soft to touch.

 

I have my own line of products and I can tell you first hand that organic cottons are much better!

 

 

Hope this helps!

I really like the idea of more organic clothing for infants due to the fact that most companies are overseas and who knows what other materials they put into our babies clothes. I'm going to help support babykeba
