You see plenty of fashion brands label their products with eco-friendly terms, but do you actually know what this means and what its benefits are to the environment? Here’s a brief schooling on some of the most common eco-friendly fashion terms:
1) ORGANIC. When a product is labeled as organic, it means that the materials for this, such as the fibers on the clothes, are not treated with pesticides and chemicals. Some don’t go for 100%, which is still fine. Products have to pass the requirements sent in the country or the industry before they can actually advertise this.
2) VEGAN. Vegan clothing means that the materials used for the garment doesn’t come from animals. So, if you see leather bags or wool knitted tops that are labeled “vegan” this means that there aren’t really used with animal ingredients, but it’s substitute. Stella McCartney is one famous label that prides on its vegan products.
3) RECLAIMED. It’s another word for recycle, meaning materials used to create handbags, belts, accessories and clothes are sourced from recycled wastes. This may also refer to the packaging of the item. Using reclaimed materials, however, doesn’t diminish the quality of the new product, as these items have undergone a stringent process for it to be reusable again.
Have you made any purchase with these common organic labels? How did you find use of the products afterwards?
