Organic fabrics like organic cotton or organic linen are a great and environmentally friendly option because these are fabrics grown without the use of hazardous chemicals, such as pesticides and insecticides and the plants were created from seeds that are not genetically engineered. According to the World Health Organization every year 20,000 workers die from severe poisoning in developing countries from the use of pesticides for growing cotton. Organic materials are breathable, allow air to pass between the layers of fabric to your skin, are hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types.
