Skip the Plastics! Companies That Sell Natural Fiber Clothing
Whether you’re here to support the planet through clothes that don’t create microfibers or use insecticides and pesticides, or you are here to find healthier alternatives to wear against your skin, you’re in the right place! Here are some of our favorite companies using natural fibers and creating thoughtful clothing you can be proud to have in your closet.
Just some encouragement… It can be hard to stop thoughtlessly shopping at all our regular companies and research and search out new options, but it’s worth it. Your body and the planet will thank you!
Note: Many of these companies will also offer clothing made with recycled fibers. Check the labels on any clothes you are looking at and skip anything with recycled polyester or that’s championed as being made from recycled plastic water bottles. These clothes create more microfibers because they are a shorter, more fragile fiber. They are creating a environmental crisis worse than the plastic water bottles. Read more here.
Also, these companies are also ethical, meaning not only are their clothes good for the planet, they are also made fairly and in safe working conditions.
Prana was committed to 100% organic cotton usage in all it clothes. This is a major commitment to more environmentally friendly fibers - and as a happy byproduct, reduces microfibers.
