A lot of people take the first steps to going green by recycling and eating organic. Some people do not even realize that there is such a thing as organic clothing. Are you ready to find out more about eco-friendly clothing?
Organic agriculture protects the health of people and the planet by reducing exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with serious health consequences, from asthma to cancer. Cotton is actually a very important thing to buy organic because cotton uses approximately 25% of the world's insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides! The Environmental Protection Agency considers seven of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton in 2000 in the United States as "possible," "likely," "probable," or "known" human carcinogens! So organic clothing makes a huge difference!
Other eco-friendly green clothing fibers include hemp and bamboo. Hemp is one of the most useful and environmentally friendly materials found. Hemp uses considerably less water than cotton and is resistant to pest thus it does not herbicides. Hemp is classified as an Eco textile meaning it requires less energy, produces less carbon and, therefore, creates less pollution than other forms of fabric manufacturing. Bamboo has recently been gaining popularity as a sustainable fabric as it does not require pesticides, regrows quickly after a cutting, and absorbs 35% more carbon dioxide than an equivalent stand of trees.
Natural Clothing Company offers organic clothing made of hemp, cotton, and bamboo fibers which spare the planet a lot of insecticide and pesticide. Natural Clothing Company offers quality pieces that are timeless in fashion and style so that you do not have to replace them when the fad is over. You will find clothing made from fibers that are healthy, breathable, easy to care for, and luxurious in quality.
Natural Clothing Company is offering one $50 Gift Certificate which may be used toward their line of organic men's, women's, children's and baby clothing.
