A Mission That Matters
About 25% of the world's insecticide use and more than 10% of the world's pesticides is used on cotton crops. Some of these chemicals are considered to be the most toxic chemicals in the world....
The health risks of pesticide exposure include birth defects, reproductive disorders and weaker immune systems. With so many products made from cotton, we are all exposed to these chemicals at some point. Our organic cotton is USDA Certified meaning the United States Department of Agriculture regulates the term organic as it applies to agricultural products through its National Organic Program (NOP) regulation, 7 CFR Part 205.
With methods that focus on soil health, organic farming is also a powerful tool in the fight against global warming. It reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and stores carbon in the soil where it boosts soil fertility instead of releasing it to the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas. Organic farming just makes sense for people and for the planet.
