Why Organic Cotton
Many consumers first become aware of organic food. They know if they eat an organic apple they are not ingesting pesticides or chemicals. "But they don't get that connection with clothing. So you have to start looking in that bigger community scope. That it is about our air, it's about our world, it's about our planet, it's about our people.....You may not feel that you're having a direct impact by buying this organic shirt [or towel]. But the impact you're having is in the bigger picture in the world at large, and especially in the community where the cotton is grown."
