Full Release

(June 9, 2009) Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, just launched a new line of 100% Certified Organic baby and toddler toys.

Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, said he's excited about this new line. "We are always looking for new items to help support a healthy lifestyle for people and the planet. Introducing this new toy line helps concerned parents create a healthy environment for their new family members."

Organic toys are especially essential since children and babies are most vulnerable to the sensitivities of chemicals and pesticides typically present in non-organic toys and products.

According to Mass, it's important to consider organic textiles, including toys, because, "Babies and toddlers are forever putting items in their mouths, including their toys, and those items can retain toxic chemicals used in the growing and manufacturing of the item. But our new 100% Certified Organic Toys line gives peace of mind to concerned parents. Our toys are produced safely and organically; they are safe, free of chemicals and pesticides."

Non-organic cotton production is one of the highest users of insecticides. During the manufacturing process, non-organic textiles use toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and other known carcinogens and skin irritants.

It's no wonder that more parents are seeking organic and eco friendly options for their families, especially their babies and toddlers.

Yes, babies are resilient. But they are also very sensitive to environmental factors. They can develop severe allergic reactions (or worse) to chemicals and products used in non-organic and synthetic materials. Mass says he hears often from his customers that they are concerned about rashes, skin irritations and allergies developing in their children. That's why they are seeking organic and eco friendly products from his store.

The eco friendly and organic toys offered through Yes It's Organic are chemical and pesticide free and are made using:

  • only 100% USDA Certified Organic Cotton
  • bright, fun colors from eco-friendly dyes- All colorants are tested to meet and exceed the most stringent global safety standards
  • and ethical manufacturing certified by ICTI CARE which ensures humane work environments and safe toy standards

News Facts

  • Organic wool is eco friendly, biodegradable and naturally soft.
  • Wool is also a good option for families with chemical sensitivities, allergies or those that want to make healthy choices for their family and the planet.

  • Covered with 100% certified organic cotton and stuffed with 100% pure organic, merino wool, they are ISO 9000:2001 Certified for quality control management and environmentally friendly practices
Full Release

(May 24, 2009) Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly goods, recently added organic mattress pads and comforters made from certified organic cotton and wool. Both the pads and the comforters, in adult and crib sizes, have an outer shell made from 100% certified organic cotton which is stuffed with 100% certified organic wool.

When asked why consumers should care if their bedding is organic, Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic replied, "Well, just like food if clothing, towels and bedding are made from non organic cotton and wool, they may contain harmful chemicals, retained in the fibers from farming and manufacturing processes. We can absorb these toxins while we breathe and sleep. We spend 7 to 9 hours in our beds every 24 hours. Why not make bed the purest space available."

Mass added, "Organic options, like the ones in our store, are 100% organic or eco friendly. We use non toxic dyes; our manufacturers employ fair labor and practice fair trade. And, the sheep grown for their wool are raised organically and the wool is washed with organic soap. We have a list of certifications used to qualify and quantify the true eco friendliness and sustainability of these products." [The list is available on their website in the Certifications Explanations section.]

In a Natural Life Magazine article Mass explains some differences between organic and non organic wool.

Natural Life Magazine, November/December 2008, Organic Fabrics [Organic sheep production...includes the following practices: Sheep must be fed 100 percent organically grown feed (grains) and forage (pastures); use of synthetic hormones, vaccinations and genetic engineering is prohibited; use of synthetic pesticides (internal, external and on pastures) is prohibited.

There are two key distinctions in organic livestock management. First is the elimination of "dipping," a method of controlling external parasites in which sheep are submerged in pools containing organophosphate-based parasiticides. Studies have indicated that prolonged exposure to sheep dip pesticides causes changes in the nervous system of humans. Moreover, disposal and runoff of dips can contaminate ground water supplies.

Secondly, in order to maintain their certification, organic livestock producers cannot exceed the natural carrying capacity of the land, thus preventing the effects of overgrazing.]

Organic wool is eco friendly, biodegradable and naturally soft. Wool has temperature moderating fibers that make it sensible and useful for all season use. The fibers insulates, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Wool is also a good option for families with chemical sensitivities, allergies or those that want to make healthy choices for their family and the planet. Wool is naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic. It is mold and mildew resistant and it inhibits mites.

The adult organic mattress pads, baby organic mattress pads, and comforters offered through Yes It's Organic, are manufactured using eco friendly procedures and products. Covered with 100% certified organic cotton and stuffed with 100% pure organic, merino wool, they are ISO 9000:2001 Certified for quality control management and environmentally friendly practices.

Eco Friendly Hemp Apparel Number One Item for Dads and Granddads

Yes It's Organic sees increasing sales in hemp apparel for Father's holiday. Consumers are looking for eco friendly and healthy gifts for their family members.

Summary

Yes It’s Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly goods, reports increasing sales in hemp apparel as Father’s holiday approaches. Hemp Denim Jeans and Organic Cotton Yoga Pants among the top sellers. Consumers are looking for eco friendly and healthy gifts for Dads and other family members.

News Facts

  • Yes It's Organic sees increase in sales of eco friendly hemp denim jeans
  • Hemp is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, perfect for people with skin sensitivities
  • Hemp is typically grown without toxic pesticides, reducing risk of exposure
  • Yes It's Organic Hemp Denim Jeans are manufactured and dyed using eco friendly methods, again reducing exposure risks to harmful chemicals
  • Yes It's Organic is also seeing increased sales in 100% Organic Yoga Pants for men and other eco friendly item
Full Release

(May 18, 2009) Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, says he's seeing a growing interest from customers looking for organic, eco friendly gifts for Dads. "Customers are writing to express gratitude and satisfaction with our huge inventory of eco friendly and organic items that make perfect gifts for Dads and other family members," says Mass, "Our 100% Eco Friendly Hemp Denim Jeans are selling particularly well."

Yes It's Organic is an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, including apparel, furniture and home accessories to enhance any green lifestyle. Mass created Yes It's Organic not only to make organic and eco friendly products available, but to educate consumers about the importance of considering these everyday items and their potential environmental and health impacts.

So, what makes Hemp Jeans so eco friendly? According to the North American Industrial Hemp Council, hemp fibers are stronger, more absorbent and more mildew-resistant than cotton. Naturally resistant to most pests and out-competing weeds, it typically doesn't require pesticides or herbicides to grow.

One of hemp's greatest properties is that it's naturally bacteria resistant. That means it resists bacteria that creates odors. Hemp clothes can be worn many days without developing odors. This has the added benefit of reducing washing and water consumption. Reducing washing also means clothes last longer due to less wear from washing.

How does hemp clothing promote healthy lifestyles or fair for people with sensitive skin, allergies or multiple chemical sensitivities (mcs)? Mass says, "They are great choices! Hemp, as well as bamboo and organic cotton, are non-irritating to the skin due to the absence of the chemicals used in many conventionally produced clothing." Also, there's no fear of skin absorbing cancer causing toxins while wearing clothes since the farming and manufacturing processes are also eco friendly.

When asked about how consumers can be certain their purchases are really supporting healthy lifestyles and a healthy planet, Ed Mass responded, "We only carry organic and eco friendly items, we've done the green screening so others don't have to, ensuring our products meet high standards of environmental sensitivity and also beneficial health properties." Yes It's Organic's sustainability policies and definitions can be found in the Certifications Expectations section of the store.

Mass has made it his mission, through Yes It's Organic, to encourage awareness about organic and eco friendly everyday items. He has written several articles discussing the benefits of choosing organic over non organic, the positive properties of non traditional fibers like sustainable bamboo and hemp, and several other topics related to the textile industry.

Yes It's Organic is satisfying the demand for eco friendly gifts, too. The store has seen a significant jump in customers and visitors to the store through May and expects to see more during the rush before the big Dad Holiday. Mass reports that Hemp Jeans and the Men's Organic Cotton Yoga Strength Pant are among the top sellers this season. Mass also anticipates a growing interest in the newer additions of hemp, bamboo and organic cotton styles for men.

Online Store Expands to Reach Farmers' Markets with Organic, Branded Shopping Bags

Yes It's Organic, an online store, expands to offer eco friendly logo branding on 100% organic cotton shopping bags. Perfect for Farmer's Markets, or other green businesses, these bags are branded using eco friendly inks to meet individual needs.

Summary

Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly goods, has expanded to offer eco friendly logo branding on 100% organic cotton shopping bags. Perfect for Farmer's Markets, or other green businesses, these bags are branded using only eco friendly inks to meet individual needs. "Farmer's Markets promote local and sustainable farming and foods," says Mass, "And our store is founded on living sustainably. That's why we want to help Farmer's Market's in their promotion efforts with another eco friendly message, that of reusable, organic cotton bags with eco friendly printed logos." With this new expansion, Farmer's Markets can offer 100% organic cotton shopping bags for their customers. Branding the bags with the Market's logo in eco friendly inks only furthers the sustainability of the Market, both in a green respect and in marketing potential.

News Facts

  • Yes It's Organic now offers 100% organic cotton market bags branded using eco friendly inks.
  • Targeting Farmer's Markets is a natural fit. "Farmer's Markets promote local and sustainable farming and foods," says Mass, "And our store is founded on living sustainably..."
  • Yes It's Organic offers 100% organic cotton market bags that are USDA certified.
  • Standard screen printing inks are made using petroleum products. They contain environmentally damaging phthalates and PVC compounds, and some also contain heavy metals and formaldehyde.
  • Mass says, "Our eco friendly inks are water based, phthalate-free, PVC-free, contain no heavy metals or formaldehyde, and are free of harmful AZO compounds."

Full Release

(May 4, 2009) Recognizing that Farmer's Markets are inherently eco friendly, Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic (yesitsorganic.com), decided he'd expand to better serve them. The store now offers 100% organic cotton market bags branded using eco friendly inks.

Yes It's Organic is an online store that features only organic and eco friendly textiles. Targeting Farmer's Markets is a natural fit. "Farmer's Markets promote local and sustainable farming and foods," says Mass, "And our store is founded on living sustainably. That's why we want to help Farmer's Market's in their promotion efforts with another eco friendly message, that of reusable, organic cotton bags with eco friendly printed logos."

With this new expansion, Farmer's Markets can offer 100% organic cotton shopping bags for their customers. Branding the bags with the Market's logo in eco friendly inks only furthers the sustainability of the Market, both in a green respect and in marketing potential.

Standard screen printing inks are made using petroleum products. They contain environmentally damaging phthalates and PVC compounds, and some also contain heavy metals and formaldehyde. Non-organic cotton production is one of the highest users of pesticides, and particularly insecticides, some of which are linked to cancer.

Mass and his Yes It's Organic team have found an alternative. They employ eco friendly and fair labor screen printing for all their logo and branding services. Mass says, "Our eco friendly inks are water based, phthalate-free, PVC-free, contain no heavy metals or formaldehyde, and are free of harmful AZO compounds."

Their 100% organic cotton market bags are USDA certified to ensure they are indeed organic.

Market shoppers understand the sustainable value in supporting local farmers. Some of them even bring their own reusable bags. "Most people don't think about the bag's composition and its overall eco footprint," adds Mass, "and I think they'd be interested to know that while it's a good alternative, their bag might not fully meet their green standards."

The typical spraying [of insecticides] application results in volatile organic compounds being released into the air, contributing to our overload of greenhouse gases. Additionally, such spraying harms the health of the soil and pollutes ground water, lakes and streams. Excerpt from Article "Organic Fabrics - Making the Progression from Organic Food to Fiber" by Ed Mass, November/December 2008.

"I believe Farmer's Markets are a great avenue to promote learning about and leading sustainable lifestyles. And offering a 100% organic cotton shopping bag for their customers is an effective way to do that," says Mass. "We offer several pricing and service options because we want to meet as many market needs as possible, from small to very large."

Online Organic and Eco Friendly Store Announces New Hemp Clothing Division

Yes It's Organic, an online store, only offers organic and eco friendly products. Adding hemp clothing, from the naturally pest-resistant renewable and sustainable crop, was a natural fit. Hemp clothes are hypoallergenic, comfortable and stylish.

Summary

Yes It's Organic, an online store, only offers organic and eco friendly products. Recently, the store added clothing made from hemp, a renewable and sustainable crop that is naturally pest-resistant, has antibacterial properties, blocks the sun's harmful UV rays, and produces luxuriously soft, but durable clothing. Hemp fibers are four times stronger, more absorbant and more resistant to mildew than cotton. Because clothes that are made from Hemp have natural antibacterial properties, the clothes do require washing as often as other fabrics, thus reducing water consumption. Hemp is a truly eco friendly textile and it's an obvious natural fit for Yes It's Organic.

News Facts

  • Yes It's Organic, an online store, featuring only organic and eco friendly products, recently launched new Hemp Clothing Division.
  • Hemp fibers are 4 times stronger, more absorbent and more mildew-resistant than cotton.
  • Hemp is a great choice for people with allergies or sensitive skin because it is naturally hypoallergenic and therefore non-irritating to the skin.
  • Hemp is naturally antibacterial making Hemp clothes more resistant to developing odors.
  • Hemp naturally wicks moisture keeping the body cool in warm climates, and insulates for cooler climates

Full Release

(April 20, 2009) Yes It's Organic is an online store featuring organic and eco friendly textiles. Therefore, their recent addition of hemp clothing and accessories was a natural fit.

"I knew I had to add more hemp products to my inventory because it's naturally eco friendly,"says Ed Mass, Founder and President of Yes It's Organic, "and that's what we're about. We only carry organic and eco friendly items, ensuring our products meet high standards of environmental sensitivity and also beneficial health properties." Yes It's Organic's sustainability policies and definitions can be found in the Certifications Expectations section of the store.

According to the North American Industrial Hemp Council, hemp fibers are stronger, more absorbent and more mildew-resistant than cotton. Naturally resistant to most pests and out-competing weeds, it typically doesn't require pesticides or herbicides to grow.

Hemp is among the oldest industries on the planet, going back more than 10,000 years. Hemp fabric is incredibly versatile. It wicks away moisture keeping the body dry and cool in warm climates. And it also naturally insulates the body in cooler climates.

One of hemp's greatest properties is that it's naturally antibacterial. That means it's resistant to developing odors as quickly as other fabrics do. Hemp clothes can be worn many days or even a week without developing odors. This has the added benefit of reducing washing and water consumption. Reducing washing also means clothes last longer due to less wear from washing.

Due to hemp's high cellulose content, it is up to four times stronger than cotton making it an incredibly durable product. It's grown without pesticides or herbicides and isn't subjected to harmful chemicals during production.

How does hemp clothing fair for people with multiple chemical sensitivities (mcs)? Mass says, "Hemp is a great choice for people with allergies or sensitive skin because it is naturally hypoallergenic and therefore non-irritating to the skin."They also don't have to fear their skin absorbing cancer causing toxins while wearing their clothes since the farming and manufacturing processes are also eco friendly.

Mass says that he is impressed with the quality he sees in his new products. His customers are, too. "One customer wrote about his hemp denim jeans. He wore them on a trip to somewhere very hot and was impressed with how comfortable he remained, because the jeans breathed so well. Then he wore them in his hometown where temperatures were down in the 40's and said he was perfectly warm in the jeans."This real life experience speaks to the great capacity of hemp fabric to both breathe and insulate.

It is evident that hemp fabric has great environmental and personal health qualities. When asked about next steps for Yes It's Organics' hemp inventory, Ed Mass said, "I am very excited about the new shirts, jeans, and other items we've recently added to the store and I hope to keep growing this section of the store."Visit Yes It's Organic to learn more and peruse the variety of hemp clothing options available.

College Grads Commence Green Future with Sustainable Bamboo Furniture

FSC Certified Sustainable Bamboo Furniture, built to last and economically sound, is now available through a new division of the Yes It's Organic online store.

Summary

Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, just launched a new line of sustainable furniture made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified Bamboo. Guaranteed to last, expansive functionality and certified free of harmful VOCs, these furniture items positively support a green future for recent college grads or anyone who looks towards a green future. "I love this furniture," says Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, "It's so versatile, beautiful, and has a wide variety of configuration possibilities. But mostly, I appreciate that it's truly a sustainable product from design to finish. That's an important quality we look for in the products offered through our store."

News Facts

Full Release

(April 5, 2009) Not unlike bamboo flooring, bamboo furniture has a very long life, resists wear and scratches and is very durable. The new line of sustainable bamboo furniture from Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, is high quality, fashionable and has extensive, flexible configurations.

Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, said the store only recently launched this division but already orders are coming in from a wide variety of people. Some are looking for value based gifts for upcoming college graduates moving into their first apartment or home. Others are from eco minded individuals with a concern for the environment.

Versatile pieces like bookcases, end tables and media towers double as office furniture, bedroom furniture or even living room furniture. Straight and corner desks in a variety of sizes feature a range of shelving and extensions to link multiple work spaces or multiple purposes to one space.

Precision manufacturing, coupled with freight-efficient flat-packaging, enables remarkable price value. "I love this furniture," says Mass, "It's so versatile with a wide variety of configuration possibilities. But mostly, I appreciate that it's truly a sustainable product from design to finish. That's an important quality we look for in the products offered through our store."

Green consumers who debate replacing worn out furniture or furniture that lacks the usefulness it once had are delighted by the fact that they can obtain this sustainable choice. Mass said some people moving households long distances find it may be more economical to buy new furniture for a new start in a new location.

What exactly does it mean to have a truly sustainable piece of furniture? "First, the bamboo is made from FSC Certified bamboo forests, which means it was harvested sustainably. The furniture pieces feature a beautiful, golden-amber finish but it's made from a non toxic kiln process and is laminated using VOC-free adhesives that are certified to the high standards of the European Union E1 rating,"explains Mass, "And what's really cool about this manufacturer is that the kiln process uses the waste material from the conversion of the bamboo into furniture for its heat source!"

The ready-to-assemble, sturdy bamboo pieces are carefully cut and designed to lock together without any tools or hardware. Yet, they are proven to be strong and wobble-free.

Yes It's Organic customers recognize the importance of clean indoor air quality for one's health, sustainable design in furniture for the environment and high quality and durability for sound economics. They want to expound these values in their family members, especially those about to lead the future. These specific furniture pieces provide all of that, and they are fun to assemble.

Visit Yes It's Organic to learn more about the Bamboo Furniture, the dangers of VOCs and more about organic and eco friendly products beyond food.

Further Information
VOCs-Volatile Organic Compounds-vaporize into the air and are toxic to breathe. E1 refers to a set of regulations for environmentally acceptable performance created by the European Union in Brussels - the most stringent rating system for furniture products in the world. This system rates furniture according to the amount of chemicals used in the manufacturing process, the degree of dangerous off-gassing of formaldehyde and other toxic gasses, and the source of base materials used. E1 is the best rating with zero off-gassing.

(March 31, 2009) In addition to offering retail consumers organic and eco friendly clothing, bedding, and sustainable furniture, Yes It's Organic, an online store, is now equipped to help businesses with their green company logo apparel and logo bags and totes, promotional items, and identity needs.

Company uniforms are made of certified organic or eco friendly fabrics and screen printed with eco friendly inks or embroidered using fair labor. Promotional products are also branded using eco friendly techniques and made from eco friendly materials.

President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, Ed Mass, says "It all began when some companies saw we were selling certified organic cotton bags in our online retail store and called to ask if they could order large quantities and have us put their logo on them. We did quite a bit of searching to find the select screen printers that we now use for eco friendly screen printing inks."

Standard screen printing inks are made from oil and contain environmentally damaging phthalates and PVC compounds, and may contain heavy metals and formaldehydes. "Not so with our inks," said Mass, "Our eco friendly inks are water based, phthalate-free, PVC-free, contain no heavy metals or formaldehyde, and are free of harmful AZO compounds."

Mass then started receiving calls from businesses that were interested in spreading their message about their commitment to the environment. They wanted to extend their actions to their logo apparel.

"Clients asked about having their logo embroidered on a 100% certified organic cotton polo shirt," added Mass. "After some research, I found high quality, stylish, and soft certified organic shirts at a fair price, so I started working to launch this division." The division opened in November 2008 and has recently expanded its range of product offerings.

Yes It's Organic now has a large database of organic and eco friendly promotional products. "Over 1000 of these products are available to imprint with a business logo or slogan" says Mass, "and we're finding more every day." With this database and Mass's connections he's confident he can meet the needs of most organizations for corporate branding and identity, conferences, events, festivals, marathons, hospitality guest rooms and spas.

Company branding and identity items from Yes It's Organic are made from 100% USDA certified organic cotton, certified organic wool, or eco friendly bamboo materials, and include shirts, towels, sheets, blankets, robes, and bags and totes of various weights and sizes.

A study by the University of Southern Georgia (2005) shows that recipients of promotional products have a significantly more positive opinion of a business, including its overall image, a higher likelihood of patronizing the business, and a higher likelihood of recommending the business.

Does Your Yoga Gear Support Your Green Mantra?

Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, announces a new line of organic yoga and exercise gear for women and men.

Summary

Yes It's Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, announces a new line of organic yoga and exercise gear for women and men.
100% certified organic cotton yoga and exercise gear encourages a healthy workout embracing mind, body, soul and the environment.

News Facts

  • Yes It's Organic, an online store, now offers 100% certified organic cotton yoga clothing.
  • Organic cotton is a healthy choice for both the person and the environment.
  • Non organic cotton production is one of the largest users of insecticides of all crops.
  • Non organic textile production uses known carcinogens like formaldehyde and perfluorocarbons (PFCs).
  • Yes It's Organic also offers other certified organic and eco friendly products for a green lifestyle

Full Release

(March 23, 2009) Yoga and other forms of exercise are undoubtedly healthy habits. But what about the clothing and accessories worn during the workout? Ed Mass, Founder and President of Yes It's Organic, www.yesitsorganic.com, says this is an important topic to consider. That's why he just added a new line of 100% organic cotton yoga and exercise gear for women and men to his store.

Yes It's Organic is an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products. Its new line features women's and men's clothing perfect for yoga or other exercise activities. These items are 100% certified organic cotton. The colors are made from certified low-impact, environmentally friendly dye processes. The store also offers organic and eco friendly towels, perfect for wiping up the sweat after a great workout.

When asked about the importance of organic workout gear, Mass explained that non organic cotton production uses more insecticides than any other single crop. And during the manufacturing process, non organic textiles use toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and other known carcinogens and skin irritants.

"Our skin is our largest organ and one of its main functions is to absorb. So it's understandable that our skin is absorbing these toxic chemicals as we sweat during our workouts," says Mass.

"I understand people are increasingly aware of exercise benefits, but often don't consider their ecological or health impact when choosing their gear," adds Mass, "That's why I added the organic yoga and exercise line. Adding sustainable, organic yoga clothing to the workout makes it a harmonious exercise for the mind, body, soul and the environment."

What can be done to ensure purchases are benefiting individual health and that of the environment? Mass suggests developing a trust in the retailer where purchases are made- that they have obtained the appropriate third-party certifications from their suppliers. Yes It's Organic offers useful resources to its customers regarding the different terms and certifications they use in the store. These resources can be found in the "Store Guides" section of the store and in Articles that discuss organic farming and the eco friendliness of different fabrics.

Online Store Satisfies Demand for Organic Textiles

Yes It’s Organic, an online store, featuring only organic and eco friendly products, sees tremendous growth in demand for organic textiles even in the current state of the downturn in the economy.

Summary

Yes It’s Organic, an online store, featuring only organic and eco friendly products, has witnessed tremendous growth in demand for organic textiles even in the current economic situation. During the holiday season of 2008, many of Yes It's Organic's suppliers ran out of stock. The majority of the suppliers had increased their original stock by 150% and still were not able to keep up with the demand. Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It's Organic, says he's preparing now for the continued growth of demand for organic textiles. He's added several new items to the store to meet customer's requests and suggestions.

News Facts

Full Release

(March 16, 2009) In most situations, it’s obvious that today’s economy is suffering. However, take a look at the organic and eco friendly textile industries and one might think otherwise. Yes It's Organic, www.yesitsorganic.com, is an online store featuring organic, fair labor, and eco friendly textiles. During the fall holiday season of 2008 several of its suppliers actually ran out of stock.

“It’s pretty amazing,” says Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It’s Organic, “I thought at first my suppliers didn’t properly calculate what they’d need, but I found several of them ordered up to 150% more than the previous year! It’s obvious the demand is great and we’re excited to meet that demand with increased organic textile stock and product options.”

During 2007-2008, the amount of organic cotton grown worldwide grew by 152 percent, according to a report by the Organic Exchange. Why is the demand so high for organic and eco friendly textiles, i.e., items like clothing and bedding materials? Ed Mass believes it’s because today’s consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental and health threats posed by non-organic textiles on people and our planet.

Mass says, “Many of our customers tell me they are concerned about chemicals from non-organic clothing and bedding affecting their health and the world in which we live. Many are concerned about the environmental degradation caused by non-organic farming techniques. Some say they have multiple chemical sensitivities (mcs) or allergic reactions to the chemicals, which may be a warning to the rest of us. These people find they are only able to wear or use organic clothing, bedding and towels.”

How can someone be certain their purchases are benefiting their health and that of the environment? Mass suggests developing a trust in the retailer where purchases are made, that they have obtained the appropriate third-party certifications from their suppliers. Yes It’s Organic offers useful resources to its customers, including discussions about the different terms used in organic and eco friendly certifications. Th store shares many articles discussing organic farming and the eco friendliness of different fabrics.

When asked why the store offers so much information, Ed Mass replied, “I know how confusing eco claims can be in today’s world where everyone is trying to capitalize on the green movement. That’s why I felt it was important to clearly explain our policies, how we verify our products are organic and eco friendly and how our customers can be confident that their purchases are indeed benefiting their health and the environment, too.”
