But what about those toxic dyes on your t-shirt? And where was that organic cotton grown? The latest craze--bamboo--grows faster than weeds but it takes a lot of processing to become silky fabric.

There will be an followup article in the CSM on the environmental costs of keeping your clothes clean.
