Does organic clothing take more energy to make it?

    It is more labor intensive, and it’s expensive to circumvent all the traditional short cuts taken by general clothing manufacturers, but in the end, it is better for the environment.

    Everything I have read claims that producing organic items—food, cotton, etc.—uses less energy than conventional farming. The downside is that using less energy means that the yeild is also lower. A 22-year study by the Rodale Institute found that organic farming uses 30% less energy than conventional, and another by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations concluded that overall, organic farming uses 30 to 50% less energy than conventional farming.
