Have you heard people talking about to support and buy Eco friendly products to help to save the earth that we are living with? You might wonder what are Eco friendly products and how do we save the earth by using them?

Eco-friendly literally means earth friendly or not harmful to the environment. So Eco-friendly products are products that do not harm the environment whether in their production, use or disposal.

Some of those going green products when in use, help conserve energy, minimize carbon footprint or the emission of greenhouse gases, and does not lead to substantial toxicity or pollution to the environment.

While other green products are biodegradable, recyclable or compo stable. Therefore, they do not harm the environment or upset the ecological balance when they are disposed of.

And there are also Eco friendly products that are made out of recycled materials. These recycle products can help reduce the need for new raw materials and the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators. The waste can be diverted to making recycled products.

In turn, demand for these recycle products will also help complete the recycling loop, and sustain the recycling industry too.

The Eco friendly products could range from Eco friendly clothing, environmentally friendly household cleaning products, or even Eco gifts for your loved ones.

 

Why Use Eco Friendly Products

Just look at the world’s consumption rate today. Things are being produced, used and then dispose of at a super rapid pace. If we make no efforts to switch to green alternatives now, in no time to come, we will be surrounded by the pollution and toxins caused by producing, using and disposing these non-green items.

We will also face a serious shortage of resources and energy due to much of these resources and energy would have been wasted in driving non-energy-efficient equipment and producing new materials and things.

Therefore, it is important to bear in mind that the use of Eco-friendly products will allow each one of us to decrease the negative effect we create when inhibiting this planet.

Benefits Of Eco Friendly Clothes

The Earth being overrun by pollution, every person has to do their bit to help to save our environment. An easy way to start is by wearing Eco-friendly clothes. Hereby are some benefits of this decision:

Reduces the Amount of Pesticides Released into The Environment

Most clothes are made from cotton and cotton farming requires a lot of pesticides to be used in order to ensure a healthy crop. By wearing clothes that are Eco-friendly, you are reducing the amount of pesticides used on a daily basis as you are lowering the demand for clothing made from cotton.

Reduces Toxic Waste

Clothes dyes are massively harmful to the environment and cotton clothes requires 1/3 of a pound of chemicals for a single shirt. That amount really adds up is causing great damage for our environment.

Support Fair Trade

By buying clothes that labeled under the Fair Trade Act, you have reassurance that the manufacturing process did not involve any sweatshops and that the working conditions of employees were safe. This helps you to support human rights while at the same time also protecting the environment.flowers

Support Animal Rights

Clothes that made of leather or fur require the deaths of many animals. The guilt of wearing these clothes is too much for many people. By changing to cruelty-free clothing you can rest assured that your fashion didn’t cause the death of another living being.

Quality Is Higher

By buying organic clothes and purchasing timeless clothes will help to cut down on consumerism. This in turn reduces your carbon footprint and will help you save money in the long term.

Clothes Will Be Unique

Hitting up a vintage shop will mean that you have many clothing that no one else will have. Mainstream clothing is mass-produced and therefore it is not uncommon for a single piece to be owned by many people. So going Eco-friendly will increase your individuality.

Maintenance Is Greener

Clothes produced from Eco-friendly resources will need special care. This means that washing clothes in cold water, not using a tumble dryer and not using chemical detergents. All of these things will help to reduce your carbon footprint.

Learn a New Skill

Many people who start to wear Eco-friendly clothes also learn how to customize and make their own clothes. You will be improving yourself while also saving the planet.

Be Less of a Strain On Our Planet’s Resources

Clothing materials take a lot and cotton especially as well as many others. The materials to make clothing are fast running out and in order to keep up with the demand farming practices that are harmful to the planet have been used.

By buying clothes that made from renewable materials such as hemp, you are reducing the demand. This will lead to a reduction in the pollution that clothing manufacturing causes.

Your Clothes Won’t Harm You

Many people have experience allergic reactions to clothes treated with chemical dyes. By wearing organic clothing, you no longer have to worry about your clothes impacting your health and skin.

    It’s so important to think about our impact on the world. And yet it can be really hard to put our ideals into practice. So few vendors sell ethical and eco clothing that it becomes easier to just give up but we shouldn’t. Thanks for the nudge to remind us of our responsibility and to remind us that whats good for us is good for the world, really. Shame I don’t live in Singapore.

    • Janet
