" Levi Strauss goes organic

Submitted by Simon on Sun.
A press release that was published already some time ago tells that the famous San Francisco based jeans company Levi Strauss will include jeans made with 100% organic cotton in its fall 2006 product line. Unluckily these will be sold first in it's US stores only and only in Winter 2006 in selected stores in Europe."

Sorry,l not impressed.  If we were talking about fair trade jeans, that is something else - but I don't normally eat jeans, so the lack of insecticide residue is not high on my list of requirements.

If you really want to be pedantic, all cotton is organic!
