I'm surprised the article didn't mention Levi's. That's the one I kept hearing about the most last year.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.levistrauss.com/News/PressReleaseDetail.aspx?pid=784" target="_blank">http://www.levistrauss.com/News/Pres...l.aspx?pid=784</a><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">SAN FRANCISCO, July 5, 2006 – The Levi’s® brand today announced it will include jeans made with 100% organic cotton in its fall 2006 product line. Organic cotton will be used in select new and popular men’s and women’s styles within its Red Tab and, the recently launched, Levi’s® Capital E™ lines. The jeans will be identified as “Levi’s® Eco” and be available in November 2006 exclusively at Levi’s® U.S. stores with additional products to be introduced in spring 2007.</div>

It does mention Levi's briefly about halfish way down the article:<br><br><br><br><br><br>
"Costs are slightly higher, but comparable. A men's vintage-style organic cotton T-shirt at Wal-Mart is $9.83, while a similar regular cotton T sells for $8.83. Levi Strauss & Co. started offering organic denim jeans in select stores in November $68 for their Red Tab jean compared to $40 for non-organic."

Yeah, I tend to skip (I mean, skim) over the Wal-Mart stuff too. Won't shop there.

Organic clothing rocks. Especially HEMP clothing!<br><br><br><br>
Cotton is one of the most pesticide intensive crops grown today. Cotton farmers are known to get certain cancers at very young ages, and some of them end up on oxygen tanks from being around all the chemicals they have to spray so much.<br><br><br><br>
Polyester is not much better since it gives off VOC volatile compounds that are toxic and create allergies. It is also dipped on formaldehyde when it is made.<br><br><br><br>
Hemp is by far the best clothing we can buy.
