Cheap Sustainable Clothing

There is so much talk about cheap, sustainable clothing these days that I feel obliged to set the record straight. My first genuine revelation about dressing was when my family would go on picnics on the beach in grade school. It was the only way to dress comfortably and not spend all our money on brand-name items.

Summer camping was my first experience with only two outfits I had bought a few weeks earlier.

When we arrived at our next campground, my mother had spent the entire day shopping.
I recall one particular day when we arrived at a marketplace.

It was the only market we knew of in the area, and she came with this great idea. She asked if we could buy some of their organic clothing, and I remember her giving us such a look as if to say, ‘there’s no way I’m going to let you buy that.’

It has been twenty years since that time, and since then, I have never looked back. Because of my love affair with eco-friendly clothing, I now happily support and promote ethically produced clothing suppliers. I know plenty of others who do the same.

When I brought home my first set of cheap, sustainable clothing, I immediately went out. I got a couple of things for myself.

Out went the t-shirts, shorts, and skirts that I have been wearing non-stop since grade school, and in went some beautiful organic shorts, skirts, and leggings.

I don’t think I have ever looked back; I mean, I’m not old enough to see the beginning of the end of something, that kind of thing is for younger people.

I still get a genuine feeling when I walk into a store and see a green t-shirt or a gorgeous organic top or blouse.

However, I find it hard to believe that I have actually lived my entire life buying nothing for myself and my children.

Twenty years ago, I would have been in the minority as far as buying and selling sustainable clothing is concerned. These days, however, everybody from all walks of life is looking for outstanding quality, affordable clothes that they can proudly wear.

This means that brands such as Organic Laundry, Reebok, Etnies, and Gap have changed how we think about buying. These brands not only offer cheap, sustainable clothing, they actually offer some of the best quality clothes money can buy.

Some clothes in their range are made from the very best materials. These clothes will last a lifetime if they are properly cared for, something nobody can claim nowadays.

Some of the most popular and stylish cheap, sustainable clothing available nowadays is available from Asos, Hanes, and Gap. The materials used in production are recycled polyester, virgin wool, cotton, cotton, bamboo, and natural grass fibers.

These materials are usually combined to make bulk items such as t-shirts, shorts, and skirts. Bamboo has recently gained attention as an environmentally friendly material. Still, as with everything new, it takes time to get used to.

The company Asos even makes jeans from recycled polyester and organic cotton, and hemp.

Some people think that cheap, sustainable clothing is simply made from cheap fabrics that look exactly like anything else. When they actually look closer, they soon realize that there are several differences. There are lots of fresh cuts, textures, and colors available.

The Asos fashion range caters to people who want comfortable and ethically correct casual wear. Many young girls prefer the Asos fashion range; they are made from eco-friendly fabrics that look and feel nice!

Many other brands on the market use misleading tags to give the impression that the clothes they are selling are cheap, sustainable clothing when, in actual fact, they are anything but.

For example, some popular brands such as Hanes use the term ‘beds’ in their label when they really mean ‘furniture.’

Other labels that can be misleading are those of Jack and Jilbab; they may look like they are made from eco-friendly material, but when you read the label, they are made from polyester.

Many other labels are misleading, so it pays to read the label. As long as the clothing is made from an ethical and fairytale material, it is unlikely to be labeled cheap, sustainable.

The major benefit of buying sustainable activewear clothing is that you will make a significant impact in reducing your carbon footprint.

A single piece of clothing can make an actual difference to the number of greenhouse gases put off into the atmosphere by human activity. It is also important to note that the clothing choices of men and women do not have to be the same.

There are many ways in which all genders can be eco-conscious; simply choose the clothing items you enjoy and buy from companies that have an ethical commitment to sustainability.
