On Beyond Organic Radio: What's Up With Cotton?

Cotton is found in the most unlikely places including cattle feed, paper money and even candy bars. Cotton also accounts for more than 25% of the world's insecticide use.

As the world’s second largest cotton producer, the U.S. is seeing a slowly rising demand for a more eco- friendly, socially responsible version.

But what are the barriers to growing organic cotton and how are farmers tackling the unique challenges of growing the world’s most popular fabric?


The Beyond Organic one-hour radio show airs every Wednesday at 10 a.m. (PST), reaching thousands of listeners across North America via traditional radio stations, satellite radio, webcasting and podcasting.
