Answering Your Questions... is Bleach used to make Organic Cotton White?

We LOVE helping people and we receive a lot of questions on Organic products and Organic Living. Here is one answered recently:

Can you tell me if this supplier specifies whether bleach is used and if dyes, is it low impact dyes to make the colors other than natural? Also, is the spandex blended throughout the shorts or is it just at the top elastic band?
Thanks in advance for your help!J

The Organic Company's Answer:


No organic manufacturer we sell uses bleach. Whites are usually obtained using Peroxide and bgreen only uses low impact dyes for all their colors. The 5-8% spandex in the boy shorts is actually a blend for this style so they fit more snugly.

Thanks Again,
