The toxic chemicals that are being used to grow conventional cotton are not only harmful to our planet and environment, but also to the people that are being exposed to them.
The cotton farmers and surrounding communities that are being exposed to these fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides are put at an extremely high risk for birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weak immune systems. These toxic chemicals can even seep into the ground and affect the water supply.
