When it comes to comfortable, breathable and beautiful cloth, there aren’t many fabrics that can top cotton. But did you know that growing three pounds of cotton, enough for a sheet set or a shirt and jeans, requires one pound of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides? Not only is that damaging to the environment, any residual chemical residue left in the cotton could be damaging to a person’s health too!
Luckily, there are plenty of great natural and chemical-free alternatives to purchasing conventional cotton these days and here in Canada, Dream Designs is a great place to find them! This fabulous store has been providing natural fabric home products to Canadians since 1981 and its products are stylish, comfortable and earth-friendly.
