Why Buy Men’s Organic Jeans?
Buying organic jeans keeps harmful chemicals out of the environment.
Jeans are made from cotton and while cotton only takes up 3% of the world’s farmland, it uses more than 20% of the world’s chemical pesticides. In 2008, the United States used nearly 4 pounds of pesticide for each acre of cotton.What’s worse is that 7 of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton are considered to be “likely” or “known” human carcinogens by the EPA.
Then there are the tons of herbicides and fertilizers.
Organic cotton still uses chemical inputs, but uses more ecologically sound methods of production. As of 2011, organic cotton only accounted for 0.7% of total world cotton production but cultivation is on the rise.
Buying organic cotton products will help grow organic cotton’s market share and keep harmful chemicals out of the environment.
