HEMP IS EARTH FRIENDLY

 

Hemp uses less water to grow than Cotton and requires zero pesticides.

The Current System: Right now Cotton Farmers are spending over $60 BILLION a year on pesticides and other toxic chemicals. These practices are destructive to the health of the Environment and Humans. We need to be conscious of the amount of pesticides and chemicals when we put this toxic clothing against our skin; especially women, children, and elderly.  Always choose ORGANIC FABRICS.

 

Hemp does not require any toxic chemicals, or dyes to process into clothing.

Cotton - " The Fabric of our Lives" is often times very toxic by the time it reaches us in the form of clothing. The average cotton t-shirt has had as many as 5 carcinogenic treatments by the time it hits our skin for the first time.  Blue Jeans are said to use 140+ chemicals to create. Talk about an environmental and human health disaster!
