Organic Cotton

Friends don’t let friends wear conventional cotton

To enable sustainability the main challenge for cotton production lies in cotton cultivation with reduced water usage, pesticides, fertilizers, defoliants and growth regulators. If this kind of cultivation is provided we speak of organic cotton. You probably think “Yuck, that’s a lot of bad stuff in conventional cotton” and we can assure you, you are right. The conventional cotton business is a dirty industry. Make sure to buy as organic as possible. At JAN ‘N JUNE we use organic cotton and recyled cotton. All of our organic cotton fabrics are certified.
