Organic Cotton Diapers

Organic cotton

Organic cotton is not genetically modified, and organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

The Most Common Fiber

Cotton makes up 50% of the world's fiber usage. Cotton is still the most common fiber used for cloth diapers, even while other natural fibers like hemp become more popular. More cloth diapering products are available all of the time from manufactured fibers of natural materials, like bamboo, and of petrochemical products, like polyester and nylon.

Yet most people still think of cloth diapers as cotton diapers.

The Problem with Cotton

Most of the impact of cotton happens in the field. The problem with cotton is the way most farmers grow it. The extreme use of pesticides, fungicides, fertilizers, and other chemical inputs make cotton a very high impact fiber to grow.

It takes about 1/3 pound of agricultural chemicals to grow the cotton for one conventional cotton T-shirt. Just 2.4% of the world's arable land is planted with cotton yet it accounts for 24% of the world's insecticide market and 11% of sale of global pesticides, making it the most pesticide-intensive crop grown on the planet.  But it doesn't have to be that way.

Clean Fields

Organic cotton and "cleaner cotton" go a long way toward reducing the impacts of cotton in the field. Reduction of agricultural chemicals results in:

  • protecting surface and groundwater
  • biodiversity
  • elimination of toxics
