I should be getting to bed, but I just noticed that a new member of our Environmental Booty community site just joined and she owns an amazing company and I had to share. If any of you guys out there like to sew, but would like organics and sustainable fabrics and notions, NearSea Naturals is your one stop shop.
In their own words
"Today, too many of us shop for clothes at our local Big Box store, appreciating the low price without realizing the true cost of what we buy. When we lose our connection to where our clothes come from, it is easy to forget the difference our fiber choices make. In choosing items that support and sustain life, we nourish ourselves, our families, and the world around us.
Shopping at NearSea Naturals enables a conscious choice: buying products you feel good about from people you know and trust. Our sustainable fabrics, notions, and usable goods support systems that are bringing about the world we all imagine. It's not just organic cotton, organic wool, hemp, silk -- it's the process, the people, and the world we're leaving for our children's children."
Conventional cotton production utilizes a lot of pesticides, perhaps even more than any other crop! Have you ever noticed any of the Surgeon General's warnings on garmet tags? Plus, have you ever noticed how the clothes sort of have a certain "smell" to them? Well that smell is the chemicals. Nice huh?

Okay, off to bed...
