When it comes to t-shirts, we all have our favorites. Maybe it's that one super soft tee that you've had for years, or the one with the perfect fit that makes you feel like a million bucks.

Organic cotton is a natural fiber that is grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, such as fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The process of organic cotton farming relies on traditional methods of agriculture, such as crop rotation and the use of natural pest control measures like companion planting, to maintain healthy soil and protect the surrounding ecosystem. This means that the cotton is grown in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way, with less impact on the environment and less risk of exposure to harmful chemicals for farmers and consumers alike. In order to be certified as organic, the cotton must meet strict standards set by an appropriate government agency or approved NGO, ensuring that the cotton is truly free of synthetic chemicals and GMOs.
