We sell and buy 2 billion t-shirts globally every year.

But how and where is the average t-shirt made, and what’s its environmental impact?

It is untrue that organic cotton farms do not use pesticides. They use 《organic》 pesticides that do as much damage to the environment as any non-organic one.

The organic industry is one of the biggest scams of all time, taking advantage of gullible people that either want to feel superior or are just ignorant.

I guess any sorts of consumption leads to some level of depletion/damage of natural resources. Like someone mentioned here, if I am watching this video on my laptop, some fossil fuels are sacrificed to generate the electricity to keep it running.

Makes you guilty now don't it?

I was hoping to learn how tee shirts were made, not get a lecture and subsequent guilt of how I'm helping to destroy the planet. She talked more about the impact of this process more than the process itself.

They come in handy for years in our house. In good condition they go to the charity shop. Otherwise they are great for cleaning glass, mirrors, car windows.

This video lacks proper digging and research.

Very interesting. Isn't industrial hemp superior to cotton and less resource intensive?
