Plastic Fibers

Did you know that many of our clothes are composed of polyester and polar fleece, two 'fabrics' that are completely made from synthetic fibers such as polyethylene terephthalate, a kind of plastic?

Most of these fabrics have been treated with detergents, petrochemical dyes (even more plastic), formaldehyde, bleach and a host of other additives that are toxic to both humans and the environment. So what should we do?

Look for these instead:
  • Cotton
  • Tencel
  • Silk
  • Linen
  • Hemp
  • Wool
  • Cashmere
