Local Organic Cotton
Cotton is one of the most sprayed crops because we don't eat it so there is less concern about pesticide residue. Unfortunately those pesticides end up in our watersheds and we get exposed to them anyway. It is so nice to know that someone in NC is working locally to bring change to how this crop is grown.
Check out this link to an article about TS Designs and Cotton of the Carolinas, two affiliated companies who have been working for the last 10 years to bring organic cotton farming and sales to NC.
