1. Knowing What’s In Our Clothes
Polyester, nylon, rayon, and other synthetic fibers are all very damaging to our environment in different ways. Polyester is straight-up plastic fiber, whereas other materials like viscose and rayon are chemically-processed wood pulp that not only contributes to massive deforestation, but also requires crazy amounts of chemicals to create fiber as an end result. It’s very, very difficult for anyone, including myself, to make conscious choices when the clothes we want are so cute, but it’s just one step in the right direction.
When I find cotton clothes, I just feel so much better about buying. Cotton is so much more sustainable than synthetic fibers, and it’s natural too. It breathes and results in (I think) better looking and better quality clothes. Once you start looking into the environmental impact of synthetic fibers, it’s hard to turn back. Check the labels on the clothes you buy, and start making the choice to go for more natural fibers, like cotton, wool, and silk.
