The most widely used natural fiber cloth in clothing today, known for its softness and breathability.
The use of cotton for fabric is known to date to prehistoric times, currently accounting for for 2.5% of the world’s arable land but using more chemicals than any other major crop – for 6% of the world’s pesticides and 16% of global insecticide releases.
The cotton industries of some countries employ child labor and damage workers’ health by exposure to pesticides used in production – the Environmental Justice Foundation has campaigned against the prevalent use of forced child and adult labor in cotton production in Uzbekistan, one of the world’s largest cotton exporter.
The chemicals used on conventional cotton crops are among the most toxic known, such as aldicarb (which can kill a person by just one drop absorbed thru the skin) and endosulfan (thought to be the most important source of fatal poisoning among cotton farmers in West Africa).
Cotton pesticides can enter our food chain through processed foods (from salad dressings to margarine and biscuits) that contain cottonseed oil, and through meat and dairy products since cows are often fed cottonseed meal.
Although the cotton industry’s position is that conventionally grown cotton is safe for the end consumer, some studies found pesticide residues in the finished product.
There is no dispute about the fact that cotton crops are grown using many millions of pounds of chemical pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. And research shows that extensive and intensive use of synthetic fertilizers, soil additives, defoliants and other substances wreak terrible havoc on soil, water, air and many, many living things.
