Has Katharine Hamnett convinced you to "Save the Future" ?

Can Katharine Hamnett convince you to consume only organic cotton?

"Non-organic cotton represents 10% of world agriculture."
This type of cotton contains 25% of the world's pesticides.

"100 million conventional cotton farmers... are living in conditions of abject poverty and near starvation."

"Conventional cotton subsidies funded by American taxpayers are causing poverty in the developing world as they lower the world price for cotton."
[American's can change this by writing their congress people and insisting organic cotton clothing]

"20,000 people die every year from accidental pesticide poisoning in conventional cotton agriculture"
