As Tromko men’s underwear continues its mission to bring in new transitions in the men’s underwear industry, we thought now is a great time to share with you some of the reasons why it’s important for not just our brand but also for other brands in the industry to make the move to organic. We all are aware of the fact that textile trash is a massive problem and the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world. But since change starts from the bottom, it seems appropriate to start from our own. Here are some reasons why you should switch to sustainable and organic underwear:
Better for the Environment
Organic underwear are made from organically farmed fibre crops which are much better for the environment.
According to the Organic Trade Association, without the use of toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and genetic modification certified organic fibre must be grown. Also by using organically farmed fibre crops, organic fibre can reduce soil erosion as well as reduce energy use and also has the potential to reduce global warming effects.
Better for Human Health
What’s better for the environment is always better for the human too. Think about it, all those harmful chemicals and pesticides used to grow conventionally farmed fibre crops are going to end up on your underwear which is like right on your skin. Besides chemicals used on crops before they have even been made into fabric, there are also all the chemicals applied to non-organic fabrics before they’re sold to consumers. Many of these chemicals are linked to various health issues such as allergies and cancer.
If you have ever worn clothes made from organic fibre then you know what I am talking about. It is damn soft! Unlike organic crops, non-organic crops are grown in the same soil year after year. Organic crops are rotated which leads to a healthier, higher quality crop yield. Dyes used on organic fibre are natural which is much gentler on the skin.
So people go grab a pair and slide ’em on! Better the environment with the use of organic.
