RECIPE FOR A GOOD DAY

I'm a bit bummed learning about cotton and need to start buying clothes and other things made with organic cotton. This organic T-short I got from one of the discount stores while ago. "Grown free" of pesticides. According to the EPA, five of the top nine pesticides used in conventional cotton production in the United States (including cyanide, propargite and trifluralin) are known cancer-causing chemicals. Cotton eats up 25% of the world’s insecticides and 10% of its pesticides, and organic cotton that’s grown, processed and produced without pesticides and other toxins is just as soft, wearable and durable as its chemical-laden cousin. It takes one-third of a pound of pesticide to make one conventional t-shirt, and two-thirds to make a pair of jeans. For more, check out http://www.sustainablecotton.org.
