The clothing industry has become a huge thing in the world of business. Left, right, up, and down, you’ll see people scrambling up the lane to get their hands on the hottest collection of clothing lines the fashion world has to offer. But many shoppers are talking about eco-clothing these days. People are becoming increasingly aware of materials used in the products they buy, and how they are manufactured. Additionally, incorporating materials from sustainable resources into their products is becoming more common among designers.
Currently, however, eco-clothing hold only a tiny market share in the fashion industry — which means it could take several years for these products to go main stream. It’s more expensive than typical clothing, but one advantage it has over the average clothing is that eco-clothing is stronger, higher quality, and generally lasts longer.
Eco-clothing is also often made from organic cotton. Organic cotton is beneficial to the environment, beneficial to farmers, their families and their communities and added value to YOU, the reseller! Almost identical to regular cotton, the organic variety differs in that it is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Eco-clothing can also be made from recycled fleece. Recycled soda bottles are used to make this type of fabric. Though it is not a natural fiber, it is considered environment-friendly because it’s made from recycled materials.
Be sure to check garment labels to see what clothing is made of when you’re shopping. You can be both socially and environmentally responsible by buying and using eco-clothing. I prefer you UltraClub organic shirts because its 100% certified organic cotton. That means that the fabric must contain 100% organically produced cotton. (The seams are sewn with polyester threads, but the shirt fabric is 100% organic cotton.)
