Today 98% of the clothing sold in the USA is made overseas. Also nearly all of that clothing are made from fabrics that have a negative effect on the environment. That’s especially cotton. So as lovers of the outdoors we want to create clothing that doesn’t pollute. For example, pollute the rivers, lakes, streams and oceans. As a result, we want to make our clothing in the USA. All from organic cotton grown in the USA.
Why? Because 5.1 billion pounds of pesticides are used in the US each year. Also these poisons not only have a negative effect on the water we love to spend time. They also have a negative effect on the bees. Also the farm workers and their families and the drinking water. Most noteworthy, the creatures in the soil and the water.
