When you’re next looking for a fashion tee or designer T-shirt, check out your options. Some brands (many of them online) now offer 100% organic fashion tees across the entire range, in other words you can get designer tees that are organic from the start. And at the same time they make a real fashion statement.
When we started GeboMana we felt it was really important that our product used 100% organic fabric. After all, we support educating children in sustainable practices, so we really should start at our own doorstep. That’s why every one of our T-shirts is an organic T-shirt, right from the start. And while we can see we’re at the forefront of this trend, it’s clear many others are following.
You’ve probably already read about how organic farming helps the environment and the farmers compared to conventional cotton farming. But did you know that organic is actually nicer to wear?
Yes, I was surprised to find this out myself, but it turns out that when wearing organic cotton on a hot day you sweat less and smell fresher-all day. And from personal experience I have found this to be true. The proof? I spend a couple of months every year in tropical Bali where an average day is over 85˚F (30˚C), and inside a garment factory it’s not much cooler!
The advantage for you as a consumer to get your organic T-shirts online is of course price. When you buy from a company that handles the design, and production and ships direct to you you’re bound to get a better product at price that is comparable to other fashion brands using conventional cotton.
Oh, by the way, one thing you may want to check out on your hunt for organic T-shirts. There is (unfortunately) a heap of organic cotton that is as nice to wear as a hemp sack. Not for me, thanks! So make sure you set out to find a tee that is just yummy soft.
Happy hunting for your organic clothing. Take it from an insider; it’s worth hunting for!
