Last but not least, there are other benefits of eco friendly clothing besides being more environmentally friendly. One of the second greatest benefits of eco friendly clothing is that they are healthier for you and me.
Conventional garments are often contaminated with chemical dyes and garment finishes (e.g. finishes to make your clothing wrinkle-free, anti-bacterial etc.), or even synthetic pesticides left over from the agriculture processes. For example, many conventional dyes and fixatives contain heavy metals and dioxins that are found to be carcinogenic.
These harmful chemicals on our conventional clothing come into ready and prolonged contact with our skin, and can cause us skin irritations and even allergies. Some of these chemicals might even diffuse through our skin into our body, especially when the chemical particles are small enough, when our sweat pores are open during sweating, or if the protective ability of our skin has been reduced substantially. The toxins that enter our body might then bio-accumulate and can cause harm to our health in the long run.
Besides being healthier for our skin, eco friendly clothing is also comfortable to wear. They have been around for centuries and used by our ancestors, before the invention of harmful synthetic chemicals like toxic dyes, pesticides and fertilizers, etc.
