IT'S ALL NATURAL – WE ALSO EAT IT!
Cotton is both a food and a fiber crop. Besides textile uses, cotton seed is used in things like cooking and salad dressings. It’s also high in vitamin E. About half of the weight of picked cotton, is cotton seed, used for food.
COTTON IS ANNUALLY RENEWABLE
Farmers plant and harvest cotton every year, making cotton a sustainable, renewable fiber crop.
Unlike synthetic foams which are do not break down, and can clog landfills, cotton is easily disposed underground where it decomposes very quickly and its nutrients are released back into the earth.
IT’S A NATURAL INSULATOR
Cotton is a soft, absorbent and breathable natural fiber making it a perfect material for bedding. Cotton keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter because it’s a good conductor of heat.
Cotton, due to its unique fiber structure, breathes better than oil based synthetic materials. Simply put, that’s why we love wearing cotton clothing and sleeping in cotton sheets. Cotton is also naturally anti-static and is unable to hold an electric charge.
A SAFE MATERIAL
Cotton is naturally safe. Synthetics and foam materials cannot make this claim – but cotton can! Cotton is naturally non-allergenic, and unlike synthetic fibers or foams, is a natural product that contains no chemicals.
