Neil Young is urging his fans and anyone else who will listen to boycott the sale of non-organic cotton.

Writing on his website, Neil says, “Friends, on my last tour of Europe, I started to give our music-loving audience free organic cotton T-shirts as a way to show that we appreciate you.

The Farm Aid board member plans to make all of his tour merchandise out of 100% organic cotton immediately. Read more about his reasons for doing so on
