The Dirty: Why You Should Switch to Organic Clothing and Ditch Fast Fashion

The fashion industry is one of the most toxic industries on the planet. This toxicity comes from pesticides, genetically modified organisms, harmful farming practices harming farmers and workers. This happens on a global scale.

Buy organic clothing. Even if you find that you don’t want to spend your money on organic clothing, it can be pricey; I suggest buying used organic. I purchase from Poshmark for organic clothing whenever I need to replace an item that have been worn to holes. I love this app for all things second hand. You can get $5 off your first purchase with Poshmark when you use my username as a promo code. @susanmisuraca

Poshmark is where you can find what you want and what you want to wear as a used item, which is an A+. 

My favorite brands to shop for on Poshmark are Eileen Fisher,  J. Jill, Patagonia, Free People, Madewell. I also search directly for organic clothing in the search bar.

For undies, socks, and leggings I always buy from PACT Organic. I don’t know about you, but used underwear is probably the one thing I would have to pass on. Pact also has a referral program to get 20% off your first purchase

When you buy organic clothing made from cotton you will never look back. The pieces you'll wear are so soft and comfortable it will be hard to go back to synthetic materials like polyester.

Besides the planet at risk from the fast fashion industry, sweatshops are real and among us. Forever 21, I am looking at you. Clothing made in sweatshops is where a big part of the problem is. Workers get unfair wages and poor working conditions. Please think before you buy. Etsy is a great place to purchase new clothing items from small, local businesses. It's pretty wonderful.

Organic clothing does not mean you are set for life wearing flowy, hippy, yoga attire. If that ain't your thing, you have options. Lots of options and for all sizes.

Buy used, buy recycled or buy organic. You'll be doing the planet a solid.
