Love my new super comfortable Organic & Fair Trade Pajamas/Loungewear by @noctuorganic
These pajamas are also perfect for wearing around family/friends because they are fashionably versatile. The pants have small pockets & and are tight near the ankle. They are great for casual wear in the hamptons to avoid ticks from climbing up your leg if worn with socks tucked into the pants. (Swipe right to see on) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔹People often think of Cotton as one of the most natural products. In reality, conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other crop in the world. It is estimated that each year cotton producers use as much as 25 percent of the world’s insecticides and more than 10 percent of the world’s pesticides; an incredible amount for one just one crop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀🔹7 of the 15 pesticides commonly used on cotton in the United States are listed as “possible,” “likely, or “known” human carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🔹This is a problem for us becuase these toxins are harmful to us because the chemicals on the clothing is in contact with our largest organ (the skin) basically 24/7.
On a larger scale, these chemicals seep into run-off water after heavy rains, poisoning lakes, rivers and waterways. Pesticide residue has been increasingly discovered in foods, farm animals and even breast milk. Not only are these carcinogens responsible for thousands of cancer cases in adults, but they are also particularly harmful to young children who can develop debilitating neurodevelopmental effects. The chemicals used are also harmful to farmers and workers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀📂References:

BugBand DEET-FREE Insect Repellent is available at Live Green…
Perfect for when you need more heavy-duty protection, BugBand spray lotion does not contain any propellants, but relies on a highly effective metered pump sprayer to dispense a fine mist over the area to be treated. By spraying the BugBand liquid directly on clothing or skin, the Geraniol vapors form a protective barrier to deter blood-sucking insects from biting. It is ideal for uses around the ankles, wrist or neck, where insects tend to invade clothing. Use once for hours of insect protection.
•New bottle design
•Small size fits into backpacks, purses, glove boxes, travel kits
•Pump spray contains no ozone harming propellents
Traditional insect repellents can be one solution, but many people think twice about slathering synthetic pesticides on their clothing, arms, legs and faces.
Naturally derived, plant-based BugBand insect repellent protects children and adults from biting insects. Whether you’re playing outside, picnicking, or just out for a walk with the family, the pleasant-scented Geraniol insect repellent vapors create an invisible shield. It is safe for children and pets, and can be used around food.
Basil bushes attract bees. This is important if you want to have a prosperous fruit and veggie patch. There is an abundantly short supply of bees all over the world through the use of pesticides. I figure we can do our part to help by not using pesticides and by planting basil bushes around your yard. This will attract vast amounts of bees to your garden. I would strongly recommend that you do not plant the basil bushes immediately beside an entertainment area or a swing set due to the amount of bees that the bushes attract.

I made potato crisps to use pesticide free one that is made by my friend's farm at kimamoto prefecture. For my kids and my snacks and a bit for costumers.
It's delicious with Whisky Highball you know.
