Make a statement
A new global ethos is emerging. People worldwide have come together to take action and make change: “We are the future. We are all part of the global movement to save our planet. We are the spirit of tomorrow making a statement for everyone to see.”
It is becoming apparent to more and more people. It’s not just about looking good, it’s about doing good. By the way you dress, you can show the world what you stand for. But beyond that, your choice of clothes is actually a way to help save the planet.
At KnowledgeCotton Apparel you’ll find a range of sustainable tees and sweatshirts making a statement. Choose your favorite items from a diverse set of printed designs – all made from GOTS certified organic cotton.
What’s the big deal about certified organic cotton, you might ask?
To begin with, it means all the difference to the cotton farmers and their families. Although the yield from organic cotton compared to genetically modified is slightly lower (14%), income is more stable because organic farming requires greater crop diversity and food crops in the rotation.
Organic cotton is grown on fields without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or defoliants. Only natural fertilizers are allowed. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are prohibited.
Worldwide, most organic cotton is grown on rain-fed farms – meaning there is no irrigation. The water usage is 91% lower than that of conventional cotton, saving our valuable freshwater resources.
Growing organic cotton saves CO₂, as much as 46% compared to conventional cotton, which means a substantial reduction in global warming. Organic cotton farming is also significantly less energy intensive.
