Many of us would prefer to be GM-free if we were empowered to do so. This is why we will continue to work on our community empowerment resource thread.

Lots of people like to slow down and look at car wrecks too.

Have you looked at the view count of other threads in this forum? That is not a lot.

Nice! I enjoy your sense of dark humor.

Dark humor is a very interesting topic indeed. Many people enjoy dark humor. Dark humor is featured in classic movies such as Pulp Fiction. For more information on Pulp Fiction and its fantastic critical reception, click here:

Flannel sheets are wonderful.... Supima cotton flannel sheets are even more wonderful!

Supima:

- Longer fibers

- Softer

- Up to 40% more durable

- Needs less pesticides

- ELS cotton is GM-free

 

I currently sleep in BT cotton flannel sheets, but when my sheets ware out, I think I will try to get Pima cotton flannel sheets.

I found a couple of websites that should be helpful for my fellow flannel sheet lovers....

-Pima

 

-Zimbabwe

 

-Egyptian

 

-ELS

 

-Color grown

 

ETC....

 

Thanks Style Forum community

Ok I'll; take the baton...

Egyptian cotton is a wonderful type of cotton. The ancient pharaohs used to clothe their exotic looking housecats in Egyptian cotton. It is so, so cool. More info coming soon on Egyptian cotton, the cotton of the Pharoahs!!!!

Two tips for a GMO-Free wardrobe:

 

Tip #1. Buy Quality

- High quality cotton has not been modified, just low grade cotton.

- Most quality cottons either have a sheen, silky softness, or extended durability.

- Companies like Iron Heart, P.B.J., and Samurai all use quality (ELS) Cotton.

- Mostly any men's store is just full of quality cottons; many department stores also use some quality ELS cottons.

To judge if a cotton garment is GM or not, the best way is to feel it.  If it looks and feels like high quality cotton, than it most likely is.... Quality GM-free cotton.

 

Or

 

Tip #2. Buy Organic

-Organics are never GMO

I have linen sheets from Linoto that are durable and soft. Still going strong after about four years of almost continuous use.

Rockin vintage denim is a cool way to ditch the GMOs and, at the same time, where a piece of history. I managed to get a hold of a couple of vintage made in USA Levis denim jackets and a vest and they are great.

 

 

 

My dad gave me these, but I’m sure that eBay’s full of nice vintage denim.

Luxury, Durability, Made in USA….

 

Hank Player pure Supima cotton t-shirts! “Proudly made in the USA, Hank Player is the official licensee of NASA, Space Shuttle Endeavour, Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl (Hank Player.com).”

 

Supima is American Superior Pima (extra long staple) cotton. It’s the good stuff! And it’s not GMO, of course.

$11.90 (on sale) is also quite reasonable for a t-shirt that is Supima cotton and Made in USA.

 

They do mostly vintage style graphic tees, but they also do plain tees. Check this out!
