It’s the latest (and life-saving) fashion trend: face masks. And if you’re looking for one that’s 100% organic cotton, you’ll find it here.
Under normal circumstances, the Naturepedic factory in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, churns out organic mattresses and bedding. But the company recently added face masks to its production line—and it's selling the masks at cost, not for profit.
Why organic? For one, synthetic fabrics carry a higher risk of chemical off-gassing—who needs that when you’re trying to boost your immune system?
But there’s another reason: cotton is one of the most toxic crops grown, which means it has a devastating impact on soil and water quality.
