Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful chemicals like pesticides and fertilizers, and its seeds are not genetically modified. It is also the only cotton standard that is 100% GMO free. Aside from the environmental benefits of organically grown cotton, the absence of hazardous chemicals also helps to improve the work environment of the local farmer. Organic cotton can be traced directly back to the field, as it helps sustain the land it is grown on through crop rotations, and uses less energy and water.
Linen is a textile made from the fibres of flax plants, and is one of the best fabrics options for many reasons. It is strong, breezy, anti-bacterial, and gentle on your skin and the planet. The production of linen requires virtually no water, and emits a quarter of the carbon as cotton per pound of fibre.
