13 undeniable reasons to love Eco Friendly Clothing
Lately, we've been hearing a lot about the conscious consumerism movement. Whether it's an organic food movement or something like the slow fashion movement where we're casting our votes with our dollars to support environmentally friendly products, more and more people are choosing to purchase products that are ethically-made and ecologically responsible. As a company that offers eco friendly clothing, it can be super challenging to create content that speaks to all of your customers. However, we wanted to shine a light on 13 undeniable reasons to love eco friendly clothing no matter how you choose to describe yourself and your lifestyle.
Eco-friendly clothing is fashionable.
Eco-friendly clothing has come a long way from just being your fave hippie's hemp-blend t-shirt. Nowadays, it's trendy to be eco-conscious—and eco-chic!
These days, smart consumers like you are choosing sustainable fabrics, timeless designs and fair labor practices. The result is that you can find truly gorgeous pieces in green lines from designers like Stella McCartney, Eileen Fisher and Reformation.
What does this mean for you? It means that you can look colorful, hot and on-trend without spilling the beans on your secret weapon: the fact that your entire outfit benefits the planet.
There are many styles available to meet your specific needs, taste and budget without sacrificing style or quality.
When you think about "eco-friendly clothing," do you picture hemp pants and Birkenstocks?
It's time to rethink your assumptions.
While there are still plenty of options for that kind of eco-friendly style, today's trendiest and most popular brands have tapped into the eco-friendly market as well. This means that you can now choose from a wide variety of styles to meet your specific needs, taste, and budget without sacrificing style or quality.
We all want to feel 100% comfortable, even if it means letting go of our natural urges of comfort.
You've probably heard the buzz about eco-friendly clothing, but you might not know what it is or why it's so great.
Eco-friendly clothing is just what it sounds like: clothing that's eco-friendly. But what does that mean, exactly? It means that our clothes are made from plants and fibers that are grown, harvested, and processed using methods that don't harm the environment.
We all want to feel 100% comfortable, even if it means letting go of our natural urges of comfort. The catch is, we want to look and feel good without risking our health or the environment. That's where eco-friendly clothing comes in.
For example, some fabrics are produced using harmful chemicals like formaldehyde or dyes that can irritate sensitive skin. But there's a better way! Eco-friendly clothing uses natural fibers and gentle processing methods to reduce environmental impact while maintaining high quality and comfort levels.
So next time you're shopping for new clothes, keep this in mind: you can be comfortable without hurting Mother Nature!
You'll save money, not to mention the benefit of leaving a smaller environmental footprint.
We all want to save money, but there's another reason to choose eco-friendly clothing: it leaves a smaller environmental footprint.
While you might not think about the impact your clothing choices have on the environment, it's important to consider the resources that go into making what you wear. In this case, "eco-friendly" means that the clothes are made of recycled materials, or with low energy processes.
Not only will you feel great knowing you're making a more environmentally friendly choice when you buy eco-friendly clothing, but you'll also be saving money. This is because eco-friendly clothing is usually made from recycled materials, which means they're cheaper to make and therefore cost less for you to purchase.
You are helping to protect the environment.
Fashion is more than just a trend. It's the future of our planet.
When you choose eco-friendly clothing, you're helping to protect the environment by supporting the circular economy and reducing pollution in our waterways and landfills. All the eco-friendly clothes are crafted from organic, recycled, reusable, or biodegradable materials. The fabric isn't just great for the environment—it's also super soft and breathable, so your clothes will keep you cool and dry even when you're breaking a sweat.
Eco-friendly fabrics are not only ethical, they are eco-friendly as well.
Now, we're not talking about buying organic food or going to the Green Market every week—we're talking about simply choosing things that are more environmentally friendly. Jeans made from organic cotton, shirts made with organic cotton, and even beautiful bags made with recycled materials are all becoming increasingly popular.
The reason why these clothes are so great is because they are also eco-friendly. Eco-friendly fabrics are just as ethical as they are green: they're made of materials that have minimal environmental impact.
For example, if you buy a shirt made from 100% organic cotton, then you've literally helped save a tree from extinction by choosing this product. While you're at it, why not choose your jeans from an organic cotton factory? And what about your bag? You know how much a plastic bag costs in California alone? Well, if you go for a bag made from recycled materials, you can literally use it again and again!
You won't be supporting the large corporations that exploit workers and pollute our planet.
When you wear clothing made from eco-friendly materials, you're choosing to make the world a better place.
Your dollar isn't supporting large corporations that exploit workers and pollute our planet. When you purchase clothing from a fast fashion retailer, you're fueling their business model of deep, deep discounts for low-quality clothing. And when you get those clothes at a discount, someone else is paying the price: workers in Latin America and Asia who are subjected to child labor and dangerous working conditions in factories.
You can also feel good about protecting our planet when you shop sustainably. The materials used are organic, recycled, or otherwise eco-friendly. That means that your clothing is sustainably sourced and ethically produced, so you can do your part to make the world a better place.
Made in a socially responsible manner, it's better for the local economy.
Eco-friendly clothing is just better. Period.
Sure, it's made in a socially responsible way—but beyond that, it's just better for the local economy. It's better for the people who make it—and how many of us are wearing clothes made by people we've never met anyway? It's just better for everyone. Eco-friendly clothing helps your community thrive and breathe, and it helps your wallet breathe too!
The "eco" in "eco-friendly" refers to the fact that these fabrics are made from materials that are renewable, such as hemp and bamboo. By using renewable resources instead of non-renewable ones (such as those found in cotton), we reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and protect forests from being cut down for agricultural purposes. The "friendly" part refers to the fact that these fabrics are often produced in a socially responsible manner—with fair wages for workers and safe working conditions. For example, hemp fabric is often produced by small farmers or cottage industries, which helps local economies thrive.
You're more likely to be made aware of the certification on a garment.
When we walk into a store, we don't often think about how the clothes we're buying were made. We don't know the names of the farmers who grew the cotton, or what sorts of chemicals they used to grow it. We don't know if the garment was sewn by someone working in decent conditions, or if they worked 90 hours a week and are still living below the poverty line. But choosing products that are certified as eco-friendly can make us more aware of these things.
It uses less water to produce, cut and transport compared to other fabrics.
Why you should think about the materials you wear
Clothing is a huge part of our lives. It's how we express ourselves and even our personalities. We put a lot of thought into what we put on, but usually not into what those clothes are made from. As important as clothing is to our everyday lives, why don't we try to make it more eco-friendly?
The reason to chose eco friendly clothing is because it uses less water to produce, cut and transport compared to other fabrics. It takes a lot of water to produce and manufacture clothing. In fact, it takes 2,700 liters of water to produce one cotton t-shirt! Cotton is one of the most common fabrics used in everyday clothing. Other fabrics that require a lot of water to produce include Polyester, Acrylic, Nylon & Leather.
By choosing this type of clothing, you're helping preserve the Earth for generations to come.
It's comfortable, and you can be more active in it.
Choosing to wear eco-conscious clothing is a great step towards living a sustainable lifestyle. It's also a chance to do your part in slowing the effects of climate change. But did you know that there are some other benefits to eco-friendly fashion, too?
It's more comfortable than regular clothes.
Here's why: it doesn't hold moisture, so you can be more active in it. It feels like a second skin, so you don't feel weighed down by your outfit. And it's made from materials that keep you cool or warm, depending on the season—which means you can wear less of it and stay just as comfortable (and show off your hard work at the gym!). Finally, we know that most people don't want their clothes to kill the animals they're wearing, so eco-friendly clothing is cruelty-free and animal-friendly.
The clothing is better quality, healthier and lasts longer than apparel made with conventional manufacturing methods.
You know you care about the environment—but did you know that buying eco-friendly clothing is a great way to do your part for the planet?
Eco-friendly apparel is made using a low-waste process and non-toxic dyes, so it's better for the earth than clothing produced with conventional manufacturing methods. And because eco-friendly clothing is made with better quality materials and uses dye that doesn't drain color with each wash, it lasts longer than other apparel.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic chemicals or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This means that you'll be reducing your exposure to toxins that are known to cause cancer and birth defects, not to mention the many environmental hazards from which natural cotton is less vulnerable than synthetics due to their inherently sustainable production process.
So take care of the earth and yourself: buy eco-friendly clothes.
Sustainable fashion is more than just Fashion Punk. It's about taking care of our fellow people, our planet and ourselves.
We may not notice it, but our clothing has very real effects on the environment. Clothing requires resources to produce, such as water and fossil fuels in manufacturing. And once you're done with it, your clothing doesn't just disappear—it either piles up in landfills or gets burned into the atmosphere as toxic pollution.
We believe that sustainable fashion is a human right. We want to make sure that the clothing we produce has as little impact on our planet and its people as possible.
• Using only ethically-sourced materials, including organic cotton and recycled polyester
• Using energy-efficient dyeing processes and water recycling
• Paying living wages to our workers and promoting their rights
• Supporting local communities through philanthropy and public outreach
You will be feeling better about life once you make the switch to natural fibers fabrics!
There are always a lot of good reasons to make the switch from cheap, synthetic clothing to eco friendly, organic materials. The most obvious reason is that you'll stop harming the planet and you'll be supporting sustainable development in local communities. After all, no one can deny that some of these materials look and feel great on the body, so you might as well choose options that not only feel great but are also beneficial for the planet. For your health, choose quality eco friendly products like organic cotton clothing.
