Benefits of organic clothing
Why choose Organic clothes?
Why choose organic clothes made from fibres of hemp, bamboo, and organic cotton over other brands made from synthetic fibers and cotton?
As our clothes are all natural, they contribute to the protection of our precious environment but also gives you the chance to wear comfortable and soft materials. Not only does hemp and bamboo require less water for growth, so rainfall is more than enough, but they also grow extremely fast and don't need acres of land, which helps towards saving our planet’s forests and animals.
Not to mention, hemp, organic cotton and bamboo feel so comfy! The feeling of the fabrics against your skin is pure softness. Every time the clothes are washed, they will also go softer, meaning that even more comfortable times are yet to come.
Im going to give you 10 reasons why you should choose HEMP over cotton.
IT’S BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT THAN COTTON.
Conventional cotton alone uses 25% of the world’s pesticides. Hemp is grown without a single one.
THE PLANT THRIVES WITH MINIMAL WATER.
So even when there’s a drought, hemp will flourish – in only 4 months!
AS FABRIC, IT’S STRONGER THAN COTTON.
We’ve been using hemp for over 20 years for a reason – its strength. When used for hemp clothing, the true beauty of the fabric is that even after many washes, it keeps its strength yet softens wash, after wash. Which means, softer times are yet to come.
IT’S BEEN USED IN TEXTILES FOR TWO CENTURIES.
Hemp was widely used for textiles as far back as the 1820s. In fact, it counted for 80% of all textiles including fabric, clothes, linen, curtains, sheets and believe it or not, even shoes!
Thanks to hemp’s natural protein structure and a ability to fend off nasty bacteria, it’s comfortable for even the most sensitive of skins.
IT’S UV RESISTANT.
Hemp can filter the suns harmful rays up to SPF 15, but it can be manipulated during manufacture to screen up to SPF 50; the maximum protection available.
AND IT’S THERMO REGULATING TOO.
Hemp clothing, like bamboo clothing, has this really smart ability to know when you’re a bit cold or a little too warm. It’ll respond and react to what your body needs most.
IT HELPS ENRICH FARMER’ SOIL.
Many farmers rotate their crops to get the best out of their fields. Hemp is excellent for this as it improves soil quality, loosening it and helping rid grounds of weeds.
OIL IS A HEALTHY, NATURAL BY PRODUCT.
Hemp plant seeds can be pressed to make two kinds of oil. The first is an edible, nutty in flavour oil and the second is primarily used in richly moisturising body care products.
HEMP IS COMPOST HEAP FRIENDLY.
So when you have something’s beyond repair you can quite literally throw it to your compost heap (if you have one). It’ll naturally break down, though I recommend tearing or cutting it into pieces to help it along.
