Dress eco-consciously on your Florida Vacation

You don’t have to wear Birkenstocks on Earth Day to be eco-conscious. As concerns for the environment is more mainstream, consumer demand is growing in every product category, including fashion. In response, you can pull on a stylish dress rather than one made out of milk cartons!

The Materials

There are certain textiles that have a detrimental impact on the environment, so consider fabrics when choosing your clothing, such as recycled polyester or organic cotton. We all know how scarce of a resource crude oil is, and this is where polyester comes from. The process for creating recycled polyester uses less energy and recycles plastic waste – see it as giving a second life to products in your recycling bin! Organic cotton isn’t genetically modified (GMO) and is cultivated without pesticides, fertilizers or other synthetic chemicals. The silky feel of lyocell is derived from regenerated cellulosic fiber which is biodegradable and is extracted from the pulp of eucalyptus wood pulp in a closed-loop process that is energy efficient.
