Who’s excited for @groceriesapparel
fall collection to drop???! I got a sneak peek when I went to visit their factory/offices in LA a few months ago (check out my story highlights if you missed it!) and there were so many pieces that I had heart eyes for 😍 I’m wearing the Sandpoint Pants (in pink, but you can find the white ones on their site right now as part of the Pre-Fall launch!) and the Gemini bra ◂ both made from ORGANIC cotton!!!

Why is it important to buy organic cotton clothing?
◂ Cotton is the second most genetically modified crop in the world (behind corn). Buying from companies that are sourcing organic cotton means your $ is supporting organic farming and casting your vote that it is NOT OK to spray the crops with that go in our bodies / on our skin with toxic pesticides. And NOT OK to use genetically modified seed that straight up🤬with our soil.
◂ Our skin is our largest organ, so YES what you wear all day and sweat in, sleep in, etc. DOES have an affect on the body!
◂ You are doing the right thing for the cotton farmers. They have to be out there in the fields where the crops are being sprayed, how do you think that affects their health? I highly recommend watching @truecostmovie
documentary- they tell the story of a cotton farmer that passed due to health complications that his family attributed to the long term use of toxic pesticides on his farm.
◂ In the case of @groceriesapparel
, not only are the fabrics organic but everything is cut, sewn, and dyed in their ethical facility in LA which I personally have gotten to visit twice now. The second time I went, when I got there all of the garment workers were having a party in the break room to celebrate somebody’s birthday! I’d like to hear of ANY fast-fashion clothing factory where that goes on. I don’t believe that anybody’s human rights should be sacrificed for my fashion choices, do you agree?
