About


Eco Facts

Cascade is long fiber hemp. Everyone thinks that buying hemp fabrics is all you need to do to be a steward of both the planet and animals, including people (your family). But there are several important issues with hemp. As with all fibers, if it is processed “conventionally,” I that is, not according to GOTS, the Global Organic Textile Standard, then it may (very likely) chemicals of concern. As Leigh Anne says, it’s like applesauce: You can start with organic apples, but, if you add red dye #2, emulsifiers, stabilizers, etc., you don’t make organic applesauce.
