The Real Deal

We love Organicclothing.blogs because it gets down to the nitty-gritty of whatever topic they’re exploring. The reporting and writing is first-rate and you can read about subjects you probably won’t find covered elsewhere. If you want to know the latest about Jordanian sweatshops or exhaustive details about organic clothing certifications (two of their recent posts), this is the blog to go to.

Shellie and Michael Lackman, (the brains behind the blog) run Lotus Organics, an online organic clothing store. This is their business, and that’s why really know their stuff about organic clothes:

At LotusOrganics.com, all garments are made with certified organic cotton or hemp fabrics and use low-impact, fiber-reactive dyes. We try very hard to insure that our clothing is grown and manufactured under ecologically sustainable conditions.
