Molly & Monty - Organic Baby Clothes

I would imagine most us know that buying 'organic' is a good thing to do - but how many of us thoroughly understand the real impact non-organic farming has on framers, workers and our wildlife eco-systems? The statistics in the below article will surprise you. For instance:

    • Cotton producers use as much as 25% of the world's insecticides and more than 10% of pesticides.
    • According to the World Health Organisation up to 20,000 deaths each year are caused by pesticide poisoning in developing countries.
    • In the US, more than 10,000 farmers die each year from cancers related to the chemicals used.
    • The US Fish and Wildlife Service has found that pesticides unintentionally kill at least 67 million birds each year.
