Food for thought from Buzzya.com

"American’s spend close to a billion dollars a year on clothing. Most of which is bought without any idea of how the clothing is made, where it comes from, or the environmental footprint it leaves on the Earth. A good example of this is cotton. Many of the insecticides used to treat cotton are classified as hazardous by the World Health Organization, six out of seven in fact.

One of these pesticides, Aldicarb, can kill a man with just one drop on the skin. This particular pesticide has even been found in the drinking water of many states. I don’t know about you, but I would rather not drink Aldicarb."
