    Monsanto’s control over the cotton seed market in India has been agriculturally and economically devastating.
    Millions of small cotton farmers have been duped into buying Monsanto’s high-priced GE seeds, only to go bankrupt.

    In despair, more than 200,000 cotton farmers have committed suicide.

    Clothes for a Change

    Clothes for a Change is a global campaign to raise awareness about the negative health and environmental effects of conventional and genetically engineered cotton and the institutionalized exploitation of clothing sweatshops.

    By uniting organic consumers, anti-genetic engineering activists, trade unionists, religious social justice advocates, progressives in the fashion & apparel industry, and the Fair Trade / anti-sweatshop communities into a potent force we can change the dynamics of the marketplace and fundamentally alter public policy.

    The Clothes for a Change Campaign Is Demanding that Major Clothing Retailers & Manufacturers:

    -Stop using genetically engineered cotton.
    -Start blending in certified organic or "transition to organic" cotton in their clothing.
    -Guarantee that they meet independently verified Fair Labor (non-sweatshop) standards.
    -Eliminate all production and export cotton subsidies in the U.S. and convert to Green subsidies for organic and transition to organic cotton production.
    -While the OCA and our allies put marketplace pressure on the clothing giants, we will also be enlisting public interest groups to support the campaign by:
    -Committing to procure non-sweatshop, environmentally sound products.
    -Signing-on in support of the core demands of the Clothes for a Change campaign.
