The Benefits Of Becoming Clothing Conscious

Oh dear,  I am wondering whether there is anything safe out there to use.  Now the clothing industry is being targeted to highlight that we are in danger of being totally surrounded by toxins, whether in the food we eat, the water we drink and the clothes on our backs. and the products we use for daily hygiene. 

Still, these articles are there to inform us that from now on we can become aware of what goes into the washing machine and even how the clothes are made.

Few shopping decisions are of no consequence these days. The foods you buy certainly have an enormous impact on your health and the environment, but so do the clothes you buy, wear and wash.
According to clothing designer Eileen Fisher, who was honored for her environmental work at the 2015 Riverkeeper's Annual Fishermen's Ball,1,2 "The clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world ... second only to oil."

Keeping your clothes clean also has a dirty downside. Many laundry detergents contain toxic chemicals that contribute to water pollution and can pose a hazard to people with chemical sensitivities.

Dry cleaning is also notorious for the toxic chemicals involved, which can off-gas for days afterward. Microfibers are also released from your clothes during washing, contributing to declining water quality and destruction of wildlife.     Our Toxic Clothes
