Why Organic Cotton Matters for Girls!

I'm a big proponent of organic food. I've been to a couple marches and rallies and I believe food should be our primary concern when it comes to our health.

Cotton I've not been so concerned with until recently. In the past I have thought to myself "why does organic cotton matter?" We just wear it. Truth is, we wear in in more ways than just clothes and for women and girls we need to be aware of the products we put into our bodies too!

Cotton is one of the largest genetically modified crops. Cotton is also in our tampons and feminine pads. We much have forgotten that. Do we want those pesticides and chemicals to be absorbed into our bodies, specifically in the lady areas?

NO, absolutely not! This isn't just a woman's issue. It's also for our girls.

Is it just me or does if feel like girls are getting their periods earlier and earlier? I mean 8 years old? So yeah, this is a girls problem too.

Toxic Shock Syndrome

Cervical and ovarian cancer

Fertility problems

birth defects...

Need I go on?

So make a conscience decision next time you purchase feminine products and go organic cotton! We don't want those nasty chemicals down there so lets be more picky about what we put into our bodies. After all, isn't that what we should be preaching? Do ya get me?
