Organic cotton: Organic cotton is considered by many to be the most eco-friendly fabric behind hemp. Organic cotton has all the same properties as its traditional non-organic variety, but by choosing organic cotton you avoid the negative consequences of pesticide and insecticide use in farming that result in reduced soil fertility, frequent water pollution, and damage to the health of cotton-pickers and animals.
Tencel®: Tencel is the brand name for Lyocell, a form of rayon. It is an award-winning eco-fibre made from tree cellulose farmed on wasteland. It is highly economical in its use of energy and natural resources, it is bio-degradable and it looks and feels great. It’s made from wood pulp, so it’s also recyclable. It doesn’t get bleached and it’s naturally wrinkle-free, so you don’t need to waste time or energy ironing it! As with many materials, Tencel production uses chemicals in the pulping process, but this is done in a 'closed-loop' system, so is benign – the thing that makes Tencel special is the recovery and reuse of up to 99.8 percent of the solvent used in that process, and the remaining emissions are broken down in biological water treatment plants. In fact, the solvent is not acidic, does not remain in the fibre, and has been proven harmless in dermatological and toxicological tests.
