Made with Organic cotton, no harsh dyes or toxic chemicals.
Regular cotton is treated with a variety of toxic chemicals to preserve the crops and increase their yield. The chemicals used are very toxic to the environment & wildlife, to the cotton pickers and in the end - to you as well, Most of the chemicals don't wear off the clothing and will always be present, off gassing certain chemicals such as formaldehyde (a known carcinogen.)
By choosing organic clothing, you are ensuring your body is not in contact with these harsh chemicals and you are not breathing them in all day/all night.
