According to Earth Pledge, a non-profit organization (NPO) committed to promoting and supporting sustainable development, "At least 8,000 chemicals are used to turn raw materials into textiles and 25% of the world's pesticides are used to grow non-organic cotton. This causes irreversible damage to people and the environment, and still two thirds of a garment's carbon footprint will occur after it is purchased."
Let's begin supporting Sustainable Designers! Check out a couple of Lindsay Lewchuk's adorable designs below. Makes me wish I had another wee one in my life to knit for! I started this blog when my son was just a toddler. I can't believe he's now 6 years old and going into 1st grade! Time flies! Cherish each and every moment you have with your little ones!
