Sustainable ecofashion is part of a wider path towards a conscious way of life. There can be no path of conscience which separates itself from the consequences of our lifestyle on the environment, on our fellow sentient beings, on ourselves, for we are part of both a physical ecosystem and an energetic one. I am aware it is still a strange concept to some. Every new idea is (the approach may seam new but the concept goes back to the danw of men). So, take your time to let it sink in. Join our community of readers or ask for a membership if you also have something to share in the blog that relates to this. Keep us close and we'll be sharing our knowledge and thoughts on the subject (the bindu spiritual fashion team and some amazing guests). You might just find the lost link between crazy, dirty, confuse material life and the balance of mindfulness, meditation and spiritual life.
In addition to being one of the most widely grown crops in the world, growing conventional cotton is also one of the most chemical-intensive. These chemicals have tremendous impact on the earth’s air, water, soil, and the health of people in cotton-growing areas. They are among the most toxic chemicals. The problem is even worse in developing countries with uninformed consumers, and lack of stable institutions and property rights. In addition to destroying the land, thousands of farmers die from exposure to these chemicals every year.
WHAT IS ORGANIC COTTON?
Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic producers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
