Apparel manufacturing is a significant source of waste and pollution that directly affects our health.
Cotton--sold as "the fabric of your life"--is one of the world's
most heavily treated crops with carcinogenic chemicals and pesticides.
25% of the world's insecticides are used to grow conventional cotton (1/3 lb per t-shirt).
1800 gallons of water are required to grow cotton for 1 pair of jeans & 400 gallons for 1 t-shirt.
Other toxins used in production of cotton and synthetics (such as
polyester, acrylics & rayon) include bleach, heavy metal/petrochemical dyes,
formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and perflourinated chemicals (PFCs).
