Organic Clothing: Green Washing Plastic Bottle Fashion






Whatever advertising spin is put on it.....recycling plastic bottles into the latest fashion still pollutes our environment in the same devastating way as creating a new bottle.  This video shows how its done.  Ground and surface water is polluted from the caustic soda baths, air is polluted from heating the plastic, enormous amounts of energy is used, workers health is at risk and the final product (clothes)  can still be linked to chronic illness and disease.  We should all just wrap ourselves in plastic wrap......because that's exactly what you're doing when you wear recycled fabric!  Please don't be mislead by the hype.  Here's a suggestion.  LET'S STOP MAKING PLASTIC, PERIOD.  Every batch ever created will stay on this earth forever and never leave.  The difference being now there will be pairs of jeans laying around.....
