Please Avoid Wearing Polyester
Polyester is one of the worst fabrics for the environment and your body.
Know what you’re putting on your body. Polyester is one of the most polluting fabrics out there.
Polyester is a plastic-like material made from coal, oil, and water. It’s made in a lab and is used to create many things such as home furnishing, seatbelts, tents, and the cover stock for diapers. Because it’s mass-produced it has become a cheap material to buy. Somehow, polyester has snuck it’s way into fashion. You might have noticed that a lot of apparel is made with polyester. Manufacturers say adding in this chemically-created material makes your shirt feel stronger, however that is not always the case.
Polyester is advertised as being wrinkle-free, but due to the harsh chemicals that go into making these clothes, polyester is not only hard but can be disastrous on sensitive skin. The chemicals can be rough on skin and lead to rashes. Wear organic cotton instead for a fabric that is great for the environment and soft on the skin.
