Organically Grown Cotton at the Tree People
Green With Tiffany’s Tiffany Paige catches up with Organically Grown. A line of organic cotton apparel for men, woman, children & babies. Robert and Julia Stein are the founders and believe there is a direct connection between what we wear and the effect it has on the earth. Their apparel is made from 100% organic cotton, which is grown using safe, pesticide-free methods from plants that are not genetically modified. They support the organic farming community and organizations worldwide that are committed to a green, sustainable environment.
According to the Organic Exchange, as estimated 170 million pounds of pesticides, and 25% of the world’s insecticides are used in the production of conventional, non-organic cotton. 7 out of 10 of these pesticides are on the EPA’s “known” list of “likely” or “probable” carcinogens. These chemicals result in the work-force illnesses, water contamination, and the devastation of farmland. All of the problems are eliminated through organic farming practices. Organically Grown is proud to be a part of the solution.
Organic cotton is grown and harvested using methods that have a low impact on the environment. Organic farmers build, replenish, and maintain healthy soil, which is the foundation of the food chain. In addition, organic cotton farmers do not use toxic chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, or GMO seeds.
