Permalink Global Organic Cotton Initiative Launched

The UK's Soil Association and the Global Organic Textile Standard have launched a campaign and website challenging major players in the textile industry to sign on to use organic cotton. The campaign is detailed in a briefing paper titled "Have You Cottoned On Yet?" that spells out five unique benefits of organic production:
1. Gives control to farmers, not GM companies
2. Eliminates hazardous synthetic pesticides
3. Helps farmers feed their families
4. Saves precious water
5. Combats climate change
