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

    All clothing sheds fibers when worn and washed. Clothing made from natural fibers shed natural materials that do not damage the environment. Clothing made from synthetic fabrics shed microplastics into the environment. Natural fabrics are also less damaging when they are eventually disposed of.
