ABOUT ORGANIC COTTON:
Known for its incredible softness, absorbency, and ability to breathe, organic cotton is pure and safe for dog's skin. The cotton is hand-picked and grown without the use of chemical fertilizers. Contrary to the popular belief that cotton is a "natural" fabric, the current manufacturing methods of conventional cotton employs the use of up to 25% of insecticides and more than 10% of pesticides.
In the year 2000, the Environmental Protection Agency deemed seven of the pesticides used in cotton production in the U.S. as "probable" or "known" human carcinogens such as acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos, and trifluralin. Organic cotton, is grown, based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers. Sckoon's partner factories located in Egypt and India are considered model enterprises for biodynamic agriculture and fair trade.
