Did you know that in the USA, one third of a pound of chemicals are used to grow enough cotton for one tee shirt?!
The elimination of exposure to these toxic chemicals for ourselves and ecosystems, is one reason Birch Clothing chooses to use organic cotton and other great fabrics like bamboo, merino, hemp, and tencel. Birch Clothing also chooses to use natural dyes or fiber reactive dyes that do not use heavy metals or other toxins and minimize the residual dye in the wastewater (unlike conventional dye). These dyes have excellent color fast properties and produce bright rich colors.
As you may have guessed, Birch Clothing is a boutique for consumers seeking to shop their values, as well as those who simply appreciate classic and contemporary styles made from high quality fabrics and materials. Birch Clothing is exceptional quality clothing and accessories all made under fair labor conditions and with sustainable fabrics and materials.
Here I am enjoying my Birch t-shirt! I love the colors and the great unisex image of the unique and beautiful Birch tree trunks. It makes me think of all my walks in the woods in New Hampshire when I was little. The t-shirt is super soft and washes well. I also really love that the sleeve has a box on it like the one you always see with all the Nutrition Information on foods, except that it is clothing facts! 0% Sweatshop Labor, 0% Pesticides Used, 0% Plastic Prints, 0% Harsh Resins, 100% Cerified Organic Cotton, 100% Water Based Inks. I thought that it was really cute but it also makes you think. Can you imagine if that was on all our clothes?
