organic cotton production
1kg of organic cotton needs 8500l of water vs. conventional cotton needing 11500l. the conventional cotton industry is not a very pretty business. make sure to buy as organic as possible - organic cotton uses less water, pesticides, fertilizers, defoliants and growth regulators and is not grown in a monoculture.
