Chemically treated organic shirts…

July 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Senseless

I was looking for an organic shirt for my husband on Nordstrom’s web site. I’ve found organic shirts with Smartcare™ wrinkle free treatment. I wasn’t sure what Smartcare was, so I asked the online rep. She told me that:

“The shirts are dipped in special solution, basked, pressed, washed with a softening agent and pressed again before folding. The easy care market is competitive and the manufacturer does not disclose the chemicals used in the finish. However, it has proven to be safe within all government approved tolerances on this Resin based finish.”

Well, no matter how safe is a chemical, it’s still not organic, is it? Why would you buy an organic shirt that has been chemically treated? Why would you sell it? What sense does this make? NONE!
