Cotton is a renewable resource. It can be regrown in a foreseeable future.
Cotton is carbon neutral. It absorbs the same amount of carbon dioxide they produce.To reduce greenhouse gases, we need to shift to a bio-based economy and sustainable manufacturing practices.
During processing, they generate mainly organic wastes and leave residues that can be used to generate electricity or make ecological housing material.
And, at the end of their life cycle, they are 100% biodegradable.
