ORGANIC COTTON:

To be accredited as organic, cotton farmers must adhere to strict guidelines prohibiting pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

If all the cotton in the world were grown organically, the use of insecticides could be reduced by 25 percent!

BAMBOO:

Fast-growing bamboo is a favorite because it regenerates rapidly without the use of pesticides. Material made from bamboo fiber is

soft to the touch and naturally anti-bacterial.

SOY:

Soy fabrics re-use a byproduct of soy products (i.e. soymilk,

soybean oil, tofu,) to create a material with a look and

feel similar to silk.

HEMP:

 

A pound of hemp fiber uses a fraction of the water needed to grow a pound of cotton.  What is great is it does not require pesticides.

The hemp plant is harvested for its fibers, seed, seed meal and seed

oil and can be spun and woven in a fine, crisp, linen-like fabric.
