Choosing natural fibres

Synonyms:
Wearing ecological clothes
Using untreated fabrics
Implementation:
The health trend to wearing natural fibres which have had no chemical treatment has been made fashionable by several clothes manufacturers. "Eco" collections of garments are made from "healthy" cotton, grown without the application of chemicals, unbleached and undyed, and untreated with formaldehyde, a chemical often used to make cotton as easy to wear and wrinkle-free as synthetic materials; Virgin wools and natural silks are also favoured.
