Our client Patricia Davis just visited. She has been getting a lot of attention both in the U.S. and overseas with her organic clothing organization known as CATA. We think you will find this interview interesting...
What is CATA?
CATA is the acronym for Consumers Against Toxic Apparel. Our mission is to increase awareness and educate consumers about the health risks of wearing toxic and chemically produced clothes. CATA offers conscious consumers exclusive access to organic apparel companies nationwide. We provide exclusive discounts on unlimited purchases from unique vendors. We are the perfect go to resource for anyone seeking clean, safe, organic and natural clothing. Our website and blog are constantly updated to keep you informed on the latest developments and dangerous practices in the textile industry.
Why is wearing organic apparel so important?
The textile industry is producing garments today using an enormous amount of dangerous chemicals contributing to serious health issues and chronic illnesses. In addition, to the many chemicals used in growing natural fibers, synthetic fabrics are produced from toxic chemical compounds not found in nature. Currently, synthetic fibers make up over 82% of mass produced clothes.This overload of toxins are not only endangering humans but our environment. Clothing from around the world has been researched and the chemicals in them have been linked to cancer, leukemia, brain damage and infertility. Wearing organic apparel decreases the amount of chemicals on your body by 80%. Organic farming does not use any pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers to grow the cotton crops. There are zero persistent chemicals to make you sick, especially during manufacturing. It's been reported that organic farming can reverse climate change a serious issue affecting our environment. Wearing organic apparel shifts dollars to companies producing clean clothes who protect our health while sustaining the environment.Dress by Earth Creations
