Clean Up Your Closet With These 13 Organic Clothing Brands

Staff Guide | January 2016 


An increasing number of brands recognize the importance in sourcing organic cotton as an alternative to non-organic materials. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic pesticides, fertilizers and GMO’s that are proven to harm the environment, farmers, producers and the end consumer.

According to the World Health Organization up to 20,000 deaths each year are caused by pesticide poisoning in developing countries during the manufacturing process. Pesticides cause a range of health concerns from short-term impacts like headaches and nausea to chronic impacts like cancer, reproductive harm, and endocrine disruption. On top of this, conventional cotton production may be the largest water user among agricultural crops.
