Many people are focusing on trying to reduce their footprint on the Earth. While both eco-friendly and organic fabrics can help with this, it is important to know the difference between the two. While organic fabrics can be eco-friendly, eco-friendly fabrics aren’t always organic.
Organic fibres are cultivated without pesticides, chemical herbicides or synthetic fertilizers that can be harmful to the environment. In order for a fabric to be considered organic, it must meet strict guidelines in regards to how the fibre is processed, produced, dyed and handled.
