Recently, Sam and I wrote a blog post on organic cotton. In our research, we found ourselves horrified about the type and quantity of pesticides used in organic cotton farming. Although I’ve always been interested in organics, and try to choose organics as much as possible
in my own life, it was always because of a general notion that pesticides are bad… they kill living beings, of which I am one, so I always assumed that it would be bad for me. In our research we came across a fantastic non-profit working towards educating people about pesticides and the consequences pesticide use is having on our environment and our health, Pesticide Action Network (PAN), North America. On their website they offer many informational articles on how pesticide use is harming us… information backed by solid scientific research… not just a “notion” that pesticide use is bad for us. PAN is working hard to make changes by reducing pesticide use and finding pesticide alternatives in hopes to have a smaller impact on our health and environment. For more information about the organization and their efforts, visit www.panna.org.
