Eco-Friendly Women's Clothing
Sustainable living includes eco-friendly clothing options for women. All cotton products are not created equal. Farmers often utilize pesticides on cotton crops. The term organic cotton relates to cotton grown without chemicals. Vegan silk is a sustainable fabric processed from the worm casings after the moths have left the cocoon. Soy, Lyocell (made from wood pulp), hemp, cashmere, alpaca wool and bamboo fabrics are all alternative sustainable options. Linen may be sustainable depending on the manufacturing process.
Companies often do not state whether chemical dyes were involved in the processing of the fabric. Natural and vegetable based dyes are an eco-friendly alternative. Clothing manufactured locally leaves a smaller footprint compared to a garment from another country. There are some trustworthy companies that create eco-friendly fabrics and clothing for women.
