Sustainable fashion - it certainly sounds good, but what is it and what does it mean for the environment and for your wardrobe?
Truly green fabric and fibers are produced organically, without the use of chemicals, pesticides or anything that is harmful to the environment. Organic cotton for example comes from plants that have not been genetically modified or grown in soil which has been treated with pesticides or chemical fertilisers.
More and more people are becoming aware of the effect humans have had, and are having, on the environment, and also of the changes we need to make to ensure the Earth is habitable for future generations. Everyone can play their part, whether that’s by doing something as simple as recycling or buying organic products.
Because more people are showing interest in buying organic items, the range of goods with a smaller carbon footprint available in the marketplace is growing every day.
Many online retailers that stock organic clothing also carry a range of Fair Trade clothes. There are now over 3,000 different types of products just in Australia alone that carry the Fair Trade mark, which ensures a better, fairer deal for producers in the third world, workers and their communities.
At one time when the idea of Fair Trade and organic clothing was still in its infancy, the choice of available styles and materials was limited. Thankfully that is no longer the case and you can find a huge choice both online and on high street. From hoodies and T-shirts to special occasion dresses and accessories, right down to knickers and socks, the choice of Fair Trade and organic clothing is getting bigger all the time…It is a trend that is here to stay and become more and more important. Which begs the question: how is high fashion to survive in this ever changing market place that is becoming more ecologically aware and economically savvy.
