Care what you wear: An Earth Day message

feel good in your clothes

This graphic was inspired by this message on Organic Consumers Association. The full text of their 10th reason to care what you wear is:

The choices you make regarding your clothing are not only expressions of style or identity, but are vital to personal health as well as environmental and ethical responsibility.You should feel good in your clothes. Good about the way your clothes were produced and made. Good about their effects on your health. Good about the way they make you feel. Consumerist culture is toxic in the way it encourages people to constantly buy and replace clothing produced through unethical conditions. It can be difficult to divorce yourself from this toxic culture, to establish your clothing choices outside of this pressure. To not care about clothes is not the solution. The solution is to care how fibers are produced and processed. To care how your clothes are made. To care what’s in the garments you wear next to your skin, and ultimately, to care how you feel wearing them. The solution is simple: Care what you wear.
