Organic Clothing ? an opportunity to spare yourself and the planet from poisonous chemicals
To go organic, it is not just the diet which needs to be changed, but it is the whole lifestyle. Wearing organic clothing is as important as having organic food. Organic clothing is gradually winning people’s choice since there are no toxins or synthetic fertilizers that are harmful to environment. Using fibers like hemp, organic cotton, bamboo not only save planet from pesticides and toxins, they leave the soil unharmed and let your body breathe and fabric wicks moisture; but also they look great, look stylish in the true timeless manner. Today clothing made from organic fibers is largely in fashion and widely used.
Cotton is a wonderfully versatile and globally important fiber that is used for a vast variety of fabrics and food products, making it one of the most widely traded commodities on earth. It is the lifeline of textile industry. But, the global cotton industry has a worldwide dark side of which most of us are not aware. The fact is that the conventional (also known as traditional or commercial) grown cotton is one of the most chemically-dependent crops. The simple act of conventionally growing and harvesting the one pound of cotton fiber needed to make a T-shirt takes an enormous and devastating toll on the earth’s air, water, and soil that impacts global health. Snowy white cotton looks pure, but looks can be deceiving. Buying organic cotton is better than purchasing either natural fibers produced with harsh pesticides, or synthetic fabrics.
Organic cotton is the version of its conventional counterpart grown without pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers or any other chemicals, and that makes it hugely different, especially considering that cotton (organic or otherwise) provides about half of all the world’s fiber needs. Organic cotton clothing feels good, looks good, and it’s good for the environment too. Nearly all types of garments are available in organic cotton, including shirts, dresses, skirts, hats, undergarments, tights, socks, sweaters, sweat suits, scarves, dinner napkins, pants, and bedding. Organic women’s clothing is available in many styles to add luxury and flattering touch to your skin. It drapes well on your body and move freely without pulling or clinging.
Aside from organic cotton, two particular eco-friendly textiles that are gaining in popularity are hemp and bamboo. These are called eco-friendly because they grow fast and are naturally pest resistant so they don’t require pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Hemp, bamboo and 100% organic cotton last long. Most important, all these fibers are healthy, breathable and easy care – good enough for the office, dinner or yoga work-out. Organic clothes are cool in summer and pleasantly warm in winter. They are easy care and last long. And at the same time they also give you the opportunity to spare yourself and the planet from poisonous chemicals. So go ahead, feel better about what you are doing for the environment and look better when you wear organic clothing and sustainable fashion.
