Eco-friendly literally means earth-friendly or not harmful to the environment. This term most commonly refers to products that contribute to green living or practices that help conserve resources like water and energy. Eco-friendly products also prevent contributions to air, water and land pollution. You can engage in eco-friendly habits or practices by being more conscious of how you use resources.
Eco-friendly products are “products that do not harm the environment whether in their production, use or disposal”. In other words, these products help preserve the environment by significantly reducing the pollution they could produce.
Cotton is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable, making it an excellent choice as an environmentally-friendly fiber throughout its entire product life cycle.
In recent years, terms like "going green" and "eco-friendly" have become buzz words on talk shows, commercials and product packaging. The term "eco-friendly" has been used for so many different products and practices, its meaning is in danger of being lost. By understanding the true meaning of eco-friendly, you can implement the practices that will lead to healthier living for the planet and its inhabitants, big and small.
Making a truly eco-friendly product keeps both environmental and human safety in mind. At a minimum, the product is non-toxic. Other eco-friendly attributes include the use of sustainably grown or raised ingredients, produced in ways that do not deplete the ecosystem. Organic ingredients or materials are grown without toxic pesticides or herbicides.
‘Eco’ friendly (or ‘ecology friendly’) goods and services are considered to inflict minimal or no harm to the environment.
There is really no such thing as a 100% eco-friendly piece of clothing. This is because all clothing takes water (to grow the fiber which makes the fabric) and energy (to make the fabric and the garment).When we talk about eco-friendly clothing, we are talking about those companies which make it a point to minimize this damage by using fibers not grown or produced with damaging chemicals, and fabrics not colored with harsh dyes and paints. In summary, ‘Eco’ friendly clothing might mean:
- Clothing made of fibers such as organic cotton and hemp
- Clothing that has been organically dyed with vegetables
- Fabrics that use small amounts of precious water to grow, such as hemp and bamboo.
- Clothing that is fully bio-degradable with zero harmful waste
