When you buy a new item of clothing, do you consider what it is made of and where it was made? Whether you realize it or not, your buying habits reflect your personal values about the environment, farmers and garment makers around the world, and of course, your own health.
The current trend of buying more and more cheap clothes, or Fast Fashion, is having disastrous effects on the environment, the livelihood of farmers and workers, and health.
Conventional cotton is a resource-intensive crop that uses more than its fair share of water, toxic pesticides, likely carcinogenic herbicides and other potentially hazardous chemicals. Over 90 percent of the cotton grown in the U.S. is made with genetically engineered (GE) cotton, as well as the 70 million acres grown worldwide.
The Dirt Shirt is made in the U.S. from farm to finish: grown, spun, cut and sewn. Dirt Shirts stand for everything that Fast Fashion does not – regenerative agriculture, fair labor practices, and fibers free of toxic chemicals and hazardous pesticides. These high quality made-in-the-USA cotton T-shirts are:
Made with GOTS certified organic cotton with no GE cotton and the hazardous herbicides that go with them
Made with American grown cotton produced by Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative farms
Made without harsh chemicals and toxic pesticides and defoliators, and instead use low impact dyes that don’t contain formaldehyde, PVC or resins
Made in a U.S. factory run by geothermal and solar energy, and pays its workers a living wage
Best of all, Dirt Shirts, made with GOTS certified organic cotton – your only assurance of organic fibers – support regenerative agriculture instead of the degradation of soil quality, pollution and the plundering of precious resources associated with conventional cotton.
We’re selling these high-fashion Dirt Shirts as part of the Care What You Wear Campaign. All profits from the sale of these shirts will go to non-profit organizations like the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) to support regenerative agriculture.
When you support regenerative agriculture, everything benefits – including the air, water, ecosystems, food, animal welfare, and your health.
