  • Katha Organic Presentation 2010-2011 It takes 1000 years for polyethylene bags to break down. Plastic bags are carried by the wind into forests, ponds, rivers, and lakes. As polyethylene breaks down, toxic substances leach into the soil and enter the food chain. Plastic bags are often mistaken as food by marine mammals. 100,000 marine mammals die yearly by eating plastic bags.There are alternatives to plastic bags.

    We at Katha lifestyles have taken a small step towards keeping our environment GREEN by creating colourful organic cotton bags.Key Facts

  • Katha Organic Presentation 2010-2011Why Organic Cotton?Conventionally grown cotton accounts for more than 25% of worldwide insecticide use and 10% of the pesticides. Pesticides used on cotton are among the most hazardous.

    Children are at greater risk for pesticide-related health problems than adults. Millions of children across the world receive up to 35% of their estimated lifetime dose of some carcinogenic pesticides by age five through food, contaminated drinking water, household use, and pesticide drift.

    It takes one pound of chemical fertilizers and pesticides to conventionally grow three pounds of cotton.

    Farm workers working in conventionally grown cotton fields around the world suffer from an abundance of toxic exposures and related health problems.

    Pesticides used on cotton cause acute poisonings and chronic illness to farm workers worldwide. Acute respiratory symptoms and other health effects in communities surrounding cotton farms are correlated with high use of defoliation chemicals.
