--- Eco-Friendly Clothing at a Glance ---Most environmentally-friendly fashions are the result of using reusable materials and materials that don't make a dent on the environment. What these designers try to do is to show that you CAN make great fashions without having to use a lot of materials harmful to the environment to make your clothes.
Here are seven reasons why sustainable fashion is better (source: treehugger.com):
1. It's better for the Earth.
2. It's better for people.
3. It's better for animals.
4. It lasts longer.
5. It's more personal.
6. It's easier (and cheaper) to take care of your clothes.
7. It's more than just organic.
You can read more on WHY these were selected by reading Why You Should Care About Sustainable Fashion from treehugger.com.
