Organic Cotton & Sustainable Fabrics

Organic cotton underwear, style blogger Moon.

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know how I prefer to buy and consume organic everything. The same goes for my underwear. They may not be the sexiest to look at, but they are the best for the planet.

By making a conscious effort to buy organic cotton and other sustainable fabrics like hemp and bamboo you are contributing to positive change. Organic products aren’t treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms. These toxins are very harmful for the entire eco-system. Conventional cotton is one of the most genetically modified crops and is responsible for 25% of the insecticides used worldwide. Also, the most toxic pesticides are used on cotton and chemical resides get trapped in the threads and can lead to irritated skin, rashes, headaches and probably more. If you are concerned at all about this and want to make the change to organic, it’s best to start with undergarments and bed sheets (I prefer silk, more on this later).

Obviously, it takes a conscious effort too find organic clothing and underwear you like. The camisole and thong I’m wearing in the pictures are by Skin. There’s also a good selection here: Skin @ Barneys. The undies will run you about $25/pair. The camisole I bought a year or so ago, but I believe it was about $60. They are a bit pricey, but they feel really great on the skin! Cotton absorbs moisture and stays dry; it breathes as opposed to nylon or other synthetic fibers which can cause perspiration. I’m not going to lie, I only own a few pair of organic cotton underwear, but I will be getting more as time goes on. Below are links to two other brands to check out. Thanks for reading…

    Hey Miss Moon,
    I am sorry I am not responded sooner. Been a bit under the weather.
    I want to respond to the other blog we were discussing too,
    If you ever want to take any of this discussion off the site, you know my e-mail. Always feel free.
    Or any discussion at all.
    As for the hair thing; I am sure that quite a few things might show up in it.
    Its probably an expensive test.
    I seem to remember some celebrity who was suppose to be on parole and suppose to keep herself clean and sober and before some court date, she cut off all her hair. Drugs and such stay in our bodies for X amount of time; but other hair sticks around for a long time. Until its cut off.

    As for the notifications, don’t worry about it. Just prompts me to come back and browse more.

    You have a clothing line? I’m impressed. Its a lot of responsibility. It does sound like your products hold up. That is what counts.

    Well, let me go over to the other page and write something.

    Thanks Reg. I’d be interested in seeing my results from a hair strand test. I was always scared my parents were going to do that test growing up, lol. Maybe I can find a place to do it for me. I wish it was easier to find organic fabrics in more designers’ styles. I have a clothing line and did 2 collections using only organic pima from Peru. They still look good after tons of washes too. I will also look into email notifications in regards to comment replies!

    Hi Moon
    Sorry about not getting back to you sooner. Maybe I thought I would see something in my e-mail when and if a reply was published.
    When I go for a run, I have some sort of acrylic on, it allows for sweat do evaporate and keeps me cooler; allowing perspiration to do its job. When I first started, I just wore what I had, which was mostly cotton or cotton blend and it was functional, but eventually got uncomfortable, especially on hot days or wet days. Hate wrestling with my clothes to get them off. Let me know how it goes with the yoga. If you want.
    Bamboo likes to suck everything up and in. Its a great purifier. I think i some cases its used in sewer plants to help purify the water. I’d have to check on that to make sure. I’m sure other plants are utilized too.
    But, generally speaking, we all keep a record of what we intake into ourselves in our body, either on a macro or micro scopic level. Even the climate at the time. Look at trees and their rings; or when we do carbon 14 dating; as humans, we keep a record of our activities in our hair and nails. If you keep your hair long, then chemicals from your environment get built right into the structure of the hair. Scientists can tell how good or bad you’ve been from your hair. Just like the pesticides used on cotton end up in the fibers, chemicals from your life get built into yours.
    Anyways, enough of this for now. You’re probably ready to fall asleep from all this science talk, but honestly, its the most mentally stimulating talk I’ve had in awhile. So, thanx.
    Take care.

    So would you ever consider adding a male portion to your creation of organic and world-changing fabrics?

    I agree with that if you are making an effort to sweat a lot it would be uncomfortable. I don’t workout in cotton, but now I want to test it during yoga. That’s interesting about the cotton plant sucking in chemicals. A bamboo plant also does that and purifies the air so it almost seems as if the cotton plant could as well. So if it were organic without chemicals it would actually be beneficial to the planet. Thanks for your info. I’ll look into that and maybe try to grow a cotton plant. Lol.

    I read your blog above and did a little reading.
    You seem to be correct on most of it.
    I didn’t realize how much of a glutton for resources a cotton plant is and by its nature, it will suck in any chemical in its environment. Kinda scary. Not only pesticides but, anything else there. Radioactive materials came to mind.

    The one thing that I didn’t agree with is about cotton keeping you dry.
    Yes and no.
    As a runner, I learned this.
    Cotton will wick moisture off our bodies keeping them dry, but the fabric by its nature, likes to hold onto the water. So we end wearing soaking wet fabric. I love cotton, except for when i run. Then i like an acrylic that dries quickly. Socks especially. There is also the chafing.

    Your passion for organic cotton is well placed amd it seems that is where the industry may be going.

    Thanx for letting me put in my 2 cents. Oh, got here from your instagram page.

    Feel free to discuss.
