THE TRUTH BEHIND COTTON

“Behind a conventional cotton fabric there is a highly polluting and damaging process for the environment and society”

A COCKTAIL OF
CHEMICAL PRODUCTS

Insecticides such as paration or aldicarb are used. These have been declared especially problematic for human health by the WHO itself. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers seven of the fifteen most widely used insecticides in cotton cultivation in this country as “possible”, “probable” or “known” carcinogen (acetate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimentalin, tribufos and trifuralin).

WATER
AND CLIMATE CRISIS

The problems associated with the excesses of the chemical fertilizer. Nitrogen, especially, which is never lacking in cotton cultivation, is a source of contamination of ground and surface waters. They cause the eutrophication of rivers and lakes, preventing the correct development of aquatic life. Water with excess nitrates is not suitable for human consumption and is especially harmful for children.

COMMUNITIES
AND FARMERS

It should not be forgotten that 99% of cotton farmers live in poor countries. Pakistan estimates that 50% of applied pesticides are lost due to misuse and the use of obsolete machinery for their application. Pictures of children running or playing by the fields while their parents apply toxic products to crops are not uncommon.
