Organic Cotton Is No Longer Peripheral-Will It Ever Be the Norm?

The interest in organic is no longer limited to food and has grown exponentially into numerous consumer categories such as apparel and home products.  

As people become more conscious about how what they buy has come to be and the realization that there are consequences to how things are produced, there is a shift in buying choices.  Studies indicate consumers are willing to adjust their buying habits to better the planet.
