Have you ever realized that the clothes we wear or the fashion that we follow has a negative impact on our society and even your health?
I know you would be shocked to know.
You would be thinking, “How come regular apparel can have a negative impact?”
Some was our reaction when we were researching on the type of fabric and cotton while launching our online t-shirt store, and found out the impact of regular or GM cotton on the environment, society, and your health.
Cotton you wear is genetically modified and has a harmful effect on you and your environment. Here are few major points to be aware of regular cotton.
- GM cotton is grown using a lot of chemicals: The seed of regular cotton is genetically modified and treated with fungicides. Later, while cultivation lot of insecticides and pesticides are aerially spread over the fields. Few of those insecticides are cancer causing agents. Cotton occupies 3% of world’s farmland but uses 25% of world’s pesticides chemicals. That is a very dangerous fact. There is the intense use of chemicals in normal cotton.
- Chemicals on your skin: Because of the treatment while making of the cotton there are a lot of harmful chemicals on the final product. These chemicals can cause allergies on your skin. It’s quite harmful to your health.
- Farmers Livelihood: Imagine farmers and their family being in constant touch with those chemicals. There have been reported cases of fatal diseases among farmer and their families.
Also, it is expensive for farmers to grow normal cotton because of the high initial capital required. In India, lot of farmers gets into bad debt cycle while producing cotton and few of them result in taking their lives. That’s one of the major reasons of high farmer suicide rate in India.
- Creates Environment Imbalance:
Around only 10% of the chemicals used in cotton accomplish their task, the rest are absorbed into the plant, air, soil, water and eventually, our bodies. It’s a major cause major environmental imbalance
