Cotton World's Dirtiest Crop

Cotton World’s Dirtiest Crop


Cotton World’s Dirtiest Crop

Cotton covers 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land yet uses 16% of the world’s insecticides, more than any other single major crop.

Wait, let’s let that sink in . . .

Cotton is considered the world’s ‘dirtiest’ crop due to its heavy use of insecticides.

Insecticides (or chemicals that cause major harm to you and the planet) are the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health.

That same cotton and those gnarly chemicals might be touching your skin right this very moment.

Dude, what about your undies?

Furthermore, all those chemicals filter into the land, into underground freshwater reserves, our rivers, our lakes and our oceans and (here it comes) our surf breaks.

Ever wonder what that smell was while you were surfing after the rain?

Think about the influence these chemical have on the water we drink and surf in—not cool!

So, your mission is to switch to organic Ts and other fabric when possible.

Do you know how good organic cotton feels?

WT is stoked to offer a whole new line of organic cotton T’s with.
