Why Choose Organic?

The simple reason - organic is the healthy, environmentally responsible choice for both our planet and your family. As we hear more and more about the environmental challenges facing our world, it seems only logical we should do all we can to help safeguard our earth and its precious natural resources for ourselves and future generations. By selecting organic products, like BuddhiWear, you’re doing just that!

Organic clothing can also provide benefits right in your own home. Organic clothing is:

  • Safer - Clothing made from organically grown cotton is free of many of the harmful chemicals found in conventionally grown cotton. Conventional cotton farming makes up less than 3% of the agricultural farmlands in the world, but it accounts for 25% of the insecticide and pesticide use.
  • More Durable - Because organic cotton is free from the chemical bleaches, dioxins, and formaldehydes used in conventional cotton, an organic T-shirt will last longer than a conventional cotton T-shirt.
  • Less Expensive - The higher durability helps make organic cotton a better value in the long run. You may pay a little more up-front than you would for a conventional cotton product, but it lasts so much longer. And, if we consider the real costs of conventional cotton, organic is a great deal since it also protects our streams and rivers, wildlife, the farm workers cultivating our cotton, and, most of all, our children who will inherit this earth.

The Pluses Keep Adding Up...
Choosing organic clothing just makes sense all the way around. Here’s a look at a few more benefits:

  • Organic fibers are hypoallergenic because organic fibers do not contains any man-made chemicals or products.
  • Organic clothing is free of the bleaches, formaldehyde, and other chemical finishes used in non-organic textile manufacturing. Even after you've washed a conventional cotton shirt many times, chemical traces remain.
  • Organic farmers nurture cotton plants so they remain vigorous enough to resist many insects, weeds, and diseases.
  • Organic farmers grow cotton in soil kept free of chemicals for three or more years and enriched with natural fertilizers.
  • Conventional farming cotton plant discards (full of toxic pesticides) end up in our food products (crackers, cakes, bake goods etc.), farm feed for animals that we will then consume, and used as stuffing for products to which we are exposed.  By purchasing organic you prevent further contamination to your family by taking more plants out of the conventional farming cycle.
