Summary
What wheat is to bread, cotton is to textiles. But the "white gold" that has lined the coffers of cloth manufacturers for centuries has also brought about economic and environmental harm. This program examines the global impact of cotton production and its effect on vulnerable populations. Viewers learn how pesticides, insecticides, and irrigation systems used to grow cotton have increased pollution, depleted water sources, and spurred global warming; worker exploitation and unfair trading practices are discussed as well. With helpful facts on organic cotton farming, the video explores alternative fiber sources such as hemp, nettle plants, and polyester while profiling ethically far-sighted fashion designers. Correlates to all applicable National and State Educational Standards including the NCLB Act
