Organic Clothing - Why Buy Organic

Even though organic clothing may cost a bit more upfront, the investment is worth every penny. Not only is organic clothing better for you, but is also the best choice for our planet. Organically grown clothing can be made from a variety of different fibers including cotton, silk, jute, wool, or ramie, all of which turn into beautiful textiles in every style imaginable. Consciously buying organic clothing says a lot about your commitment to not only your health but the future of this planet as well. Read on to find out why you should buy organic and what this means for you, your family, and the environment.

Say Goodbye to Pesticides and Chemicals

The amount of pesticides and chemicals that go into growing fibers for textiles is outrageous. With organic crops, they require zero chemicals and pesticides that do nothing but harm you and the environment. Organic farming emits far less CO2 emissions than conventional farming while using 60% less water and preventing water contamination. No pesticides and chemicals also means you and your family aren’t exposed to any toxicity when you wear organic clothing.

Great for your Skin

Consumers across the globe are switching to clothing that is organically made. Organic clothing is not only better for your skin but is especially great for the delicate, new skin of babies. Those who wear organic clothing also have fewer respiratory problems and the organic clothing also causes fewer allergies. It is an excellent alternative not only for the environmental conscious but for those with sensitive prone skin as well.

Better for Farmers

When we wear the clothes we do, we rarely think about the labor that went into the fabric to produce them. From seed to store, the process of making clothing is a long one, and the farmer’s that harvest these crops are one of the most integral pieces of all. Conventional crops are grown with a staggering amount of chemicals and pesticides, which means poor working conditions for the farmer. There are thousands of farmers in poorer countries that die every year from exposure to these toxic chemicals. Supporting organic clothing means supporting improved and healthy work conditions for some of the most important people of this process.
