Why choose organic cotton? Cotton is a very pesticide-intensive crop but organic fibres are grown without the use of harmful pesticides or genetically modified organisms so promote a healthier environment for wildlife, animals and people. Social conditions are high in organic textile factories so this cotton production can help farmers find a way out of poverty. Organic textiles don't contain allergenic, carcinogenic or toxic chemicals and as a result are a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre.
Why Choose 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! Not all Lyocell fabric is made from sustainable wood, though, so check labels carefully, and as usual, try to find a product that’s been dyed with a low-chemical or vegetable colourant.
