    At Home Choose Natural Clothing Fibers
    What are the benefits (to people, animals, and the environment) of purchasing clothes made with natural fibers?

    We can prevent the micro plastic to go to nature by decreasing the demand for them. I went to shopping for clothing yesterday. I couldn’t find any thing to buy with just wool or cotton. They are all with some polyester in it. So I end up not buying any. Saved some money🎉

    Not only does dry cleaning create plastic waste, but some dry cleaning processes also use harmful chemicals. What do you do to minimize the amount of dry cleaning you have done?

    I was rarely using dry cleaning but I decided to stop it all. I hand washed my White winter jacket which turned out little lumpy and not really clean 😟but I am still using it. Next time, I should choose a different color
