"completely organic 100% pesticide free silk"

A quote from a fashion magazine - anyone else have a problem with this?

Yup - but I have a problem with silk being described as "green" too. It takes a lot more resources to grow an animal protein than a plant protein!

That one is almost as bad as my favourite "totally unique".

Hahahahahahahahaha!

While hilarious, it is also a sad reminder that we are becoming increasingly ignorant of where the things we use (and, my own personal hobby-horse, EAT) come from. The organic movement is well-intended, but the organic label is not a substitute for common sense.

What type of silk are they talking about? Banana silk, bamboo silk, or silk of the worm variety?!

BE MORE SPECIFIC! Silly fashion mags. Generalisation is always a bad move. :)

LOL - very silly and confusing.

I agree about the use of the word 'organic' - what's NOT organic food - inorganic?! They clearly never studied chemistry...

If everything special called Organic .. so what we use for Inorganic (mean how they grow n crop)...
