Natural clothing provides a number of health benefits that are compromised by synthetic clothing. Natural clothing (like that made with cotton, silk, hemp, linen, or lyocell to name a few) allows your skin to breathe, with better absorption, temperature regulation, and often antimicrobial properties. Unlike synthetic fabrics (like polyester, nylon, and acrylic) natural fiber fabrics will stay fresher and keep you feeling and smelling cleaner longer. Further, as plastics, synthetic fabrics are more prone to absorb toxins. We’ll discuss these points and more in the included articles. We address issues regarding personal health, such as the best fabric for your underwear, as well as health effects on a larger scale, examining communities affected by farming pesticides and processing plant chemicals.
