Did You Know?

The t-shirt and jeans you are wearing cost the Earth 2,200 gallons of water, enough to fill a small tanker truck?

The production of cotton-textiles uses up large amounts of resources, such as water and energy, as well as releasing byproducts of starch, paraffin, dyes, pesticides and other harmful pollutants into the air and soil — under regular conditions.
