Insofar as the green movement is trendy, the fashion industry has gotten on board. Now you can buy “organic” cotton clothes, and its generally greener to buy locally manufactured products as opposed to clothing manufactured overseas. Compared to 20 years ago, I’m positive that you can more easily find local, eco-minded clothing distributors such as the ones featured at art/craft fairs such as Renegade (see link).
Some clothing companies are introducing an organic line of clothing. Cotton traditionally has required large inputs of harsh chemicals for fertilizers and pesticides, in one year about 50 million pounds of pesticides are used for U.S. cotton fields. By creating an organic line companies are offering a product to individuals that wish to purchase clothing the does not require the use of pesticides.
