Directory for Organic Cotton and Organic Cotton Products,

Web site<http://organiccottondirectory.net/

One quarter of all insecticides and one tenth of all pesticides are applied to conventionally grown cotton. This directory promotes sustainable alternatives as it connects all links of the worldwide cotton chain from growers to gins, mills, manufacturers and retailers. First compiled by PANNA and now expanded and maintained by PAN Germany, the directory provides information on organic certification, cotton production and retail outlets in a wide range of countries.
