Being Beautiful Was Never So Environmentally Friendly

by on Sep.16, 2009, under Eco Fashion

The following quotes are from “Being Beautiful Was Never So Environmentally Friendly” by Jesmine G. on care2.com.

“it’s not just the kinds of clothes you wear that determine your eco-fashion level (or lack thereof), but also how you buy, clean and take care of your clothes.”

“Not all companies are using sustainable practices and may just use any kind of green marketing as a way to attract environmentally friendly consumers.”

“Buying clothing made of organic cotton can help but not if the actual process of treating the shirt is as harsh as that used for regular cotton tees.”

These clothes were embarrassing to wear, yet many women bought them, either because there was nothing else in the stores or because they thought it was “fashion.”” – from “When it all started” by Anne on FAB Fashion Alternative Board Message Board.

If anybody should have knowledge of the risks, they should”, says study author Evan Farmer, dean of Eastern Virginia Medical School (Norfolk, VA, USA). “But awareness of the dangers doesn’t alter behavior in the face of enormous pressures to conform and achieve the ‘right’ image.”” – Read the whole article here: “US university students ignore tanning lamp risks“.
