Ever since I found out about the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico which can be directly attributed to pesticide runoff from cotton crops, I’ve been searching for ways to make my life less of a place for bleached, non-organic cotton to hang out. So far I’ve crossed off socks, towels, bedding, and other cotton items from my list. But this morning, I realized I’d left one essential item off; Q-Tips.
At $4.49, they aren’t that far away in price from their non-organic counterparts. Buy some other things from the store and the shipping won’t be too killer. There’s a lot there to choose from!
If you are in Toronto, stop by this awesome store at its original location on the Danforth or its not so new Annex branch. You can also buy these organic cotton swabs online.
