Are you worried about the future of our planet? Do you feel concerned about helping protect our environment? I think many people do, but they don't know how to.

Personally I felt enthusiastic when I saw this optimist statement:

Change the world changing the clothes you use!

It seems we can help a lot choosing to use environmentally friendly clothes. By this sole decision we may find one of the easiest ways we can support sustainability.

I believe that not only to sympathize with but to adopt "Organic Fibers Fashion" is a clever decision. As John Lennon said once: "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one"?, I believe this decision can help us to improve and perhaps to save our environment; and I agree with people defending this matter: it isn't just a passing trend fashion.

If we realize that by going green we can help taking care of the planet, sure we shall take environmental concerns seriously, and we'll be proud using eco-friendly clothes, if there is such a powerful reason behind this decision.

If we decide to surround ourselves with the comfort and natural beauty of clean, non-toxic, and pure fibers, using them just the way nature intended, we may not only help protect our fragile ecosystem, we are supporting small farming communities around the world.

Natural fibers have kept humans comfortable for thousands of years.

After Second World War people began the introduction of dangerous pesticides and fertilizers. Fiber crops, like food crops, began to be treated with chemical toxins, perhaps ignoring the subsequent damaging effects on the farm workers who raised the crops and on the environment.

Today we can account on organic production systems that are able to maintain soil fertility, reducing the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, building biologically diverse agriculture.

To control pests and disease, organic agriculture utilizes alternatives to conventional chemicals. There are a lot of techniques to achieve this goal, without damaging the economic benefits it involves.

But overall I guess that one of the most important factors is our consumers' attitude. Fortunately, as little by little consumers become more environmentally aware, the growing demand for organic fibers is now on the rise. And fashion is accompanying this demand.

Let's be part of this change changing our clothes.
