Conventional Cotton Isn't So Pure

- Conventional cotton farming is one of the most environmentally unfriendly crops worldwide.

- Conventional cotton growing uses up to 25% of the world's pesticides, putting about one third of a pound in every t-shirt you own.

- 24% of the world's insecticide use—worth $2.6 billion—goes into cotton production.

- Insecticides and pesticides then seep deep into the soil, contaminating both the soil and nearby ground, surface and drinking water.

Of the fifteen known pesticides and herbicides used in the production of conventionally grown cotton, seven of them have been labeled "possible," "likely," "probable," or "known" carcinogens including: acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos, and trifluralin according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Why Organic Clothing?

Organic cotton is grown and processed without the use of pesticides, insecticides, defoliants, or artificial fertilizers, or dioxin-producing bleach. The general idea is to grow and harvest and process crops without damaging the ecosystem

Creating a pure, natural environment is a vital decision for a growing number of people.Since we expose to pollutants in many aspects of life, choosing organic fibers is another step towards natural living, both for us as well as our environment.

In summary, here are the top 10 reasons why organic clothing should be on your shopping list:

  • It helps protect us and our children
