Cotton is frequently labeled the ‘world’s dirtiest crop’. When farmed traditionally, cotton requires a tremendous amount of water, pesticides and fertilizers, which has been proven to deplete and poison local water supplies, causing a variety of environmental and health problems. In addition, garments made in a modern supply chain use a wide variety of chemicals and toxic dyes. These chemicals have been thought to cause a variety of skin and other problems.
To be honest, we don’t really believe that organic clothing impacts your health - there isn’t much proof that it prevents things like skin cancer. However, organic farming and production practices are much, much better for the local environment, and this makes life dramatically better for local farmers and factory workers. That is unquestionable.
