Purchasing organic cotton supports more than just cotton, it affects the entire ecosystem of organic farming.
Organic farming creates 60% less output of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases than conventional cotton.
Organic cotton farming uses zero toxic pesticides ensuring a safe working environment for workers.
We want to ensure that no one has to sleep in sheets made with this list of toxic chemicals deemed too harmful to use by GOTS, like formaldehyde, phthalates and endocrine disruptors.
We believe in extending the life of our organic products. To take our positive impact a step further, Coyuchi responsibly renews + recycles used linens through our partnership with the Renewal Workshop. Learn more about Coyuchi for Life here.
From the seed to your bed, organic cotton and linen are treated differently than conventionally grown fibers. Some of what makes organic better for the environment is obvious – no toxic pesticides, for instance, means cleaner soil, water and air. But did you know that by going organic with your bedding, you're helping to fight global warming, too?
By choosing organic sheets, you're not only reducing the output of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (organic farming creates 60% less of those than conventional), you're helping to protect the health of soil around the world. Healthy soil actually stores carbon dioxide, keeping it out of the atmosphere, and that stored carbon helps the soil retain moisture and nutrients. Fertile, carbon-rich soil helps more plants grow, and those plants, in turn, draw in more carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, continuing the beneficial cycle.
It's also worth noting that the positive impact of choosing organic sheets extends beyond the fiber they're woven from. Many farms rotate fiber plants with food crops, so by choosing organic sheets, you are actually helping to support and sustain the organic farming of veggies and grains, too. In a way, by simply changing your sheets, you're helping to change the world.
