We put ourselves in the shoes and sandals of the people making our children’s clothing.
We asked, "What would be acceptable working and living conditions if our family members were the ones doing these jobs?"
Spraying pesticides without protection? Having local water supplies and food crops contaminated by these same chemicals? The stress of dependency on large corporations for GMO seeds?
We wouldn’t want that for anyone in our family, we don’t want that for anyone else’s family either.
If “organic” also happens to mean softer, more durable fabric… we’ll take that too.
