Organic cotton production uses significantly less fossil fuels than conventional production. The results of a recent life cycle assessment of organic cotton revealed that carbon dioxide emissions (CO 2 eq.) are on average 46% lower than CO 2 emissions equivalent to conventional cotton production. This is mainly due to the limited use of chemical inputs in organic production and the fact that the vast majority of organic cotton is produced by small farmers in developing countries who farm by hand instead of using machinery and irrigation systems.
The good news is that the demand for organic cotton is growing year by year and more and more companies are committed to using organic cotton.
