"Unfortunately, the USDA organic label that is used to show organic food is not used on organic clothing," says Honor Schauland, campaign assistant for the Organic Consumers Association. "Look for the statements '100% Organic,' as well as 'Certified Organic.' Consumers can also look for the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Label."
