The other day I was making groceries at Sams when I came across organic cotton socks. Now my wife is on a pretty strcit vegetarian diet so I'm very familiar with organic food and the reasons for buying organic food. I would like somebody to let me know the benefits of buying socks made from organic cotton. If you ain't going to eat the stuff then why would pesticides matter? But hey why not, they have organic shampoo and everything else. If it's not organic it has some kind of chipoltle sauce in it these days. i guess it's just the fad marketing gimmic of the day.
