For those looking to buy new clothes, make sure to read the labels for material composition! Organic cotton, surplus cotton, flax and hemp are sustainable options. For synthetics, try to go for recycled fabrics. Also, brands may tell you that something is sustainable, but watch out for ‘green washing’ – where companies give partial or incomplete information to make their practices sound more eco-friendly than they are. For instance, a brand may market its T-shirt as organic cotton, but the label says its 90% regular cotton, 10% organic cotton – which is misleading! Get organic cotton, hand-woven fabrics, flax and hemp. Looking at synthetics – try to go for recycled fabrics.
