Care what your baby wears? GO ORGANIC, it's a healthy way to go!

The cotton plant produces more food for man and animals than it does fiber for clothing. Approximately 850,000 tons of cottonseed is produced annually in California. About 95% of that supply is fed to dairy cattle and the balance is crushed for the oil. Most dairy cows are fed 8 pounds of cotton seeds each day, so all the toxic chemicals applied on the cotton go right into our milk and meat. Cottonseed oil is used in food products like candy, potatoes chips and crackers and is a main ingredient in many marinades, dressings, margarines and prepared foods.

When you purchase organic cotton products you support responsible organic cotton farmers and manufacturers and help to decrease amount of toxic chemicals in our food!
