As an almost-mom-of-tw0 (omg! so soon) who often thinks of the future, promoting sustainable fashion options has become increasingly important to me. I’m starting my Monday off reppin’ the cause in my TENCEL tee; like all of their products (composed of lyocell and/or modal), it is totally biodegradable and compostable. Why is this important? For one, it will prevent millions of micro-plastics from coming off in the washing machine and ultimately polluting our oceans– this is what happens when you choose plastic-based fibers like polyester, nylon, and rayon. Secondly, whenever the life of the garment is done, it won’t sit forever (literally hundreds of years) in a landfill; it will break down! Thirdly, these fibers are non-toxic and better for us. Plus! The fabric feels AMAZING on! You need to try it. It is truly soft and silky-feeling, and so breathable. For this reason, I love their pillowcases as well (TENCEL makes home goods, too!).
So many well known brands already see the value and uniqueness of TENCEL and offer their products. From intimates at Victoria’s Secret to Jeans at LEVI’S to dresses at Mara Hoffman to home goods at West Elm… You can choose wisely and make a difference with what you choose to purchase.
