Before talking about organic clothing, let us have our facts clear. All over the world, people are growing conscious of the environment and their own health. With pollution everywhere around them, people are growing green. This implies living close to the nature by avoiding pollution and doing everything they can to protect the ecology and the environment.

When people talk of the word green, the first thing that comes to mind is food as people think that food is what affects them directly. What they conveniently forget is the fact that there are other things that can adversely affect their health as well. One of these is their clothing that remains in close contact with their skin.

Ordinarily produced clothing material comes in contact with all sorts of pesticides and other toxins such as dyes and other synthetically produced materials. It is easy to understand the hazards of such clothing on our skin, which is the largest organ of our body. This is one reason why people today prefer organic clothing over ordinary clothing that is man made and contains many toxins.

Now that the need of natural clothing is clear to us, let us see actually what organic clothing is. Clothing that is made from organically produced material implying produced through agricultural practices that do not make use of pesticides and other toxins is called organic clothing. Some of the products that are grown through these practices are cotton, wool, hemp and even bamboo. Clothes that are made from such products are all natural and free from the harmful products that are grown using pesticides and other chemicals. Even the dyes that are used to provide different hues to these clothes are all natural made from herbs and plants.

If you are using organically grown products, you can be sure of two things. For one, they will not cause any harm whatsoever to Earth, water and air, and secondly they will not do any harm to those who wear them. You just cannot imagine the incalculable harm caused to earth and water resources when the pollutants and toxins from apparel making industries are released in water resources.

When you opt to wear organic clothing, you are sure that it is not going to do any harm to your body. Bigger satisfaction arises from the knowledge that these clothes have been produced in consonance with the laws of the nature without harming the environment and ecology. Already the present population is reeling under the harmful effects of global warming and all the pollution that we are causing. Then why not make a beginning towards cleaning the mess we have ourselves created?

Sensing the needs of the people, more and more manufacturers are making such clothes and are doing brisk business. These clothes are no doubt more expensive than ordinary clothing, but people wear them with pride and satisfaction. Especially for babies who have very delicate and sensitive skin, people are making a conscious effort to buy organic clothing that lets their skin breathe and not develop any skin diseases.
