Many of us are interested in doing what we can for the environment. Consider requesting organic cotton when getting custom apparel screen printed. For cotton to be deemed organic, it has to be grown by making use of not only materials but also methods that result in a low environmental impact. What this means is that the seeds used cannot be modified genetically in any way. Consumers can also be assured that non-toxic pesticides and non-synthetic fertilizers are used in the production of this organic cotton. To make sure that companies are adhering to these standards, third party organizations regularly inspect them.

The great thing about organic cotton is that it can be used for all the same products that regular cotton is used in. Many designers are implementing organic cotton not only for its environmental benefits but also because it sets them apart from others in their market.

The one downside to taking the organic cotton is that it tends to be more expensive. Cultivating this product is much more difficult for a couple reasons. First, the seeds are not genetically modified which means they are much more sensitive to climate changes in addition to soil changes. Since farmers cannot control these variables, a layer of difficulty is added. The next reason is that more man hours are required to rid organic plants of pests and weeds since the use of pesticides and chemicals is considerably minimized. To manage the conflict of interest between wanting to encourage the organic cotton industry and still keeping prices to an acceptable level, many companies produce blends that include both regular and organic cotton.
