when choosing cottons, you have a choice...
the other way
  • seeds typically treated with insecticides GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) frequently used loss of soil due to mono crop culture
  • high usage of synthetic fertilizers
  • intensive irrigation required
  • herbicides are applied to the soil to kill weeds
  • accounts for approximately 25% of the world’s insecticide consumption
  • many of the insecticides are known to be carcinogens
  • cotton defoliation activated by chemicals

the better way
  • uses untreated seeds
  • never uses GMOs
  • soil retains more water because of the organic matter in the soil
  • fertilizers not needed due to stronger soil via crop rotation
  • irrigation requirements greatly reduced due to better rainwater retention
  • weeds are physically removed
  • beneficial insects and other natural methods are used
  • cotton defoliation activated through natural seasonal freezing (aboutorganiccotton.org)

art & eden is part-experiment, part-life-dream, part-resistance, part-social-movement.
we know that we don’t have all the answers. we don’t even have all of the questions. but what we do have is heart, imagination, and the conviction that our choices have the power to make a better world.
welcome to the journey. let’s open up to change and co-create something beautiful.
