[Sam Moore]: Over the last 5 years, several companies have been working to replace the non organic t-shirts used as advertising by organic food companies, with organic product, only to be told that the garments are “too expensive” verses traditional t-shirts or fleece wear. This seems to be oxymoronic at best. Organic food products sell at a premium because the consumer learned what they were taught about the quality, health, and value obtained from organic products. It would seem that the organic food producers would be the first group to support the production of stylish, distinguishable, organic textiles, by purchasing organically produced garments that meet the new organic standards and promote civil society.
Organic food companies will not buy organic apparel
