What to Wear?
The worst and most hazardous chemicals are used in conventional textiles, so buying certified GOTS, Cradle to Cradle, and/or OEKO-TEX are the best ways to take action.
GOTS cotton and wool are free of pesticides, herbicides, NPEs, and GMOs, and dyed without harmful chemicals such as chlorine bleach, formaldehyde and heavy metals.
By purchasing second-hand clothing, you can have the peace of mind that the product has been washed multiple times, which helps to remove chemical residue. If you are not a second-hand shopper, make sure to wash your clothes with detergent for sensitive skin to reduce exposure to formaldehyde and other harmful treatments.
