So, why should you buy organic cotton?
If there is one action you can take to be more environmentally friendly, changing your shopping choices to include organic cotton can have a tremendous positive impact on both the Planet, and quite possibly your health.
As soft and comfy as cotton is, the cultivation of non-organic cotton is a toxic nightmare.
Over one quarter of all the pesticides used in agriculture today are applied to the modern cotton plant.
This stuff contains some of the nastiest compounds known to man, including cyanide.
Of the nine major pesticides used on cotton five are proven cancer-causing chemicals and all nine are classified by the EPA as type 1 and 2 - the most dangerous listing possible.
After so many years of growing in these toxins the modern cotton plant has been genetically engineered to the point where it is no longer a natural fiber, but rather a plant that is designed to stand up to the strains of the pesticides sprayed on it.
In addition to the obvious harm done to the environment by the cultivation of non-organic cotton, numerous questions remain unanswered about how this chemical laced fabric affects the human body.
We do not pretend to be experts on the science of this potential problem, however, common sense suggests that there might be something unhealthy about constantly coming in contact with non-organic cotton.

ECOBAGSŪ Products, Inc. opened for business in 1989 with a simple goal; to produce quality bags at great prices so that "Reusable becomes a way of life."
We started with the ECOBAGSŪ Brand Classic String Bag, a simple lightweight, expandable daily tote used in Europe for generations, long before paper and plastic bags.
We introduced our bags at the 1990 Earth Day celebration on Sixth Avenue in New York City. The bags were a hit. We sold out in four hours.
Now, we carry a complete line of ECOBAGSŪ Brand bags in natural and certified organic cotton, recycled cotton and hemp/cotton blends.
We exist to provide products, information and inspiration that help people reduce, re-use and recycle.
Starting with the simple step of bringing your own reusable cloth bag to shop may seem trivial, but it creates a "mindset."
Like anything, the more people who take this simple step, the more it becomes the natural and right thing to do.
