What do organic cotton and puppies have in common? They love being in photos together! Before diving into why I’m a big fan of organic cotton (especially from prAna) I wanted to introduce you to the newest addition to our family. Introducing our new puppy who arrived three weeks ago from Mississippi. She’s added so much love and joy to our family. For those of you who have been following me over the years, you might remember when we lost our chocolate lab. It’s been five years and we finally took the puppy plunge.
Now back to my love of organic cotton and prAna.
I’ve been wearing prAna for many years. I started out with a few yoga tops way back when I took my first yoga class. Their tops have always been trendy and comfortable, with a great fit. What’s not to love about a company that creates ethically-made clothing? prAna considers the impact of their actions and lets their values guide their decisions as they make their clothing.
Every ounce of cotton used by prAna is organic. That’s pretty amazing.
There are 3 great reasons to make the switch to organic cotton whenever you can
Organic Cotton is Better for You
Many of us spend time researching what we put in and on our bodies. Trying to limit the number of chemicals and toxins that we’re exposed to by making educated choices is a priority. How about our clothing? Our skin is our largest organ and everything that comes in contact with it can be absorbed by our bodies. Cotton is considered the world’s dirtiest crop due to its heavy use of pesticides. Making the switch to organic will reduce your exposure to those pesticides.
It’s Better for Farmers
When we choose to use organic cotton we are helping to protect farmers and their families from being exposed to harmful chemicals.
It’s Better for the Earth
If you replaced one conventional tee with an organic cotton tee, you would save 115 gallons of water, which is the same amount of water used if you let the shower run for nearly an hour. The soil prep requirements for organic farming can increase the water-holding capacity within the land, creating less water waste.3 Reasons Organic Cotton Rocks (hint: harmful chemicals not allowed) #WearOrganicCotton #prANaFall18 Click To Tweet
