Slip into Something Sustainable

When you slip into something more comfortable, make it something crafted from sustainable, environmentally friendly fabrics, such as organic cotton and silk, or sustainable materials like bamboo and hemp.

When they aren't organically produced, fabrics such as cotton contribute to the problem of climate change. Farmers who grow cotton using conventional methods rely heavily on toxic and synthetic pesticides and fertilizers that degrade the environment -- in fact, 10 percent of the chemicals used in American agriculture are used to grow cotton. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is produced with methods that promote soil health, biodiversity and sustainable farming practices. And because it's regulated, the product label can't advertise something as organic unless it's been produced in accordance with the USDA regulations. Sexy and sustainable.
