Organic Cotton Bags & Fair Trade Cotton Bags

Organic Cotton and Fair Trade Cotton bags are viable alternatives to the dreaded plastic bag and to conventional cotton bags.

Cotton is a wonderfully versatile, breathable, absorbent, soft fibre of global importance. But the farming, irrigation and pest control practices of conventionally grown cotton are proving problematic for the planet.

Gradually a new option is becoming available, with more cotton being grown organically (no pesticides or fungicides) and sometimes without irrigation. Initially available in clothing, towels and bed linen, organic cotton is now being used in a wider variety of fabric applications, including T-shirts, bags and caps. While supplies are still limited, there is no doubt that the spread of organically grown cotton will continue, saving water, soils, energy and preventing chemical pollution.

Also available is Fair Trade Cotton: FairTrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.
