Cotton is the main material for our textiles, especially those which we wear directly on our skin. During the cotton production, plenty of pesticides are used, even such poisons which were used as chemical weapons. Many of these pesticides are banned in Europe, but still used and produced by Bayer in India. In the cotton belt of India, they are the number one killer of farmers: caught in the vicious circle of debt commit suicide. Hundreds of people die of poisonous during spraying season. The residues of the poison reach European consumers, and enter their bodies through the skin. The only way is organic cotton!
