Synthetic and toxic filled fabrics have been proved in research and laboratory studies from around the world to have a severe and negative impact on human and animal health. We can do better than this. Mother Nature has graciously provided us with all the materials we need to clothe our bodies, furnish our homes and more without sacrificing our health or environment.
Organic clothes will never go out of style and they last much longer than conventional in regards to quality and construction. However, once they are discarded, the fiber returns to Mother Earth harmlessly; leaving no chemicals or fiber composite behind. Because we know the care and passion that goes in to producing better clothes there is no comparison to conventional fashion. Conventional fashion employs over 8000 and up to 12,000 chemical types to produce. Of those chemicals there are thousands and thousands of group classifications and versions of those chemicals in our clothes. Many have been banned by other countries and nations around the world because of their known toxicity.
Growing or cultivating organic and natural fibers take time. The one thing fast fashion and an industry riddle with greed does not embrace.
As a consumer you can change these dynamics simply based upon how you spend your dollars. Know who makes your clothes, demand quality, say no to synthetic fabrics such as polyester, acrylic, rayon, acetate and tri-acetate, nylon, modal, tencel, loycell, viscose and even bamboo (bamboo is produced using the same toxic methods as rayon and in fact is classified as rayon fiber). We'll have to wait a little longer for this fibre to truly be sustainable and cleaner.
