Why is Organic clothing the fashion rage the world over?! India, as the original fashion capital of the world (remember, mere mortals from the world over braved the high seas to reach India for her silks and cottons!!!) – leads in contemporary Organic Fashion – Clothing & Accessories, for men & women!!!

What is Organic Clothing? 

Organic clothing is made of all-natural, non-synthetic materials and is a part of the organic agriculture movement. This emphasizes farming and processing that work with nature and help minimize air, soil and water pollution. Organic clothing materials come from plants that have not been radiated, genetically modified or treated with synthetic or chemical pesticides.  Organic fabrics like cotton, wool, silk, Bamboo and hemp meet regulations set by Organic Trade Associations. 

 What is SAFE about Organic Clothing?

To understand this, we need to understand the Dangers of Non-organic Clothing. These are often the source of contact dermatitis, an allergic reaction. The dyes, resins and formaldehyde used in processing fabrics could cause reactions. Synthetic fibers and wool can act as irritants.

The World Health Organization estimates that pesticides poison at least 3 million people every year . Over half of the pesticides used in cotton cultivation as likely to cause cancer in humans . Many pesticides have been shown to cause a range of other health concerns in humans, like:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Neurological Disorders
  • and Birth Defects.

Children exposed to methyl parathion, an insecticide, are observed to suffer memory loss and emotional swings.

 What is GREEN about Organic Clothing?

It is Fashion with Responsibility! Clothing and fabrics made using entirely non-chemical means of production – including chemical fertilizers and pesticides is a sustainable means of living in co-existence with Nature. Organic agricultural methods are totally sustainable, helping reduce the Carbon Footprint. Plus, Organic farming also uses 50 percent less energy than conventional farming .

Benefits of Organic Clothing

  • The environmental benefits of organic clothing stem from the fact that growers produce cotton without synthetic fertilizers or toxic herbicides and pesticides, from non-genetically engineered seed.
  • Authentic organic fabrics and clothing can help the environment in a number of ways:
  • No chemical pesticides are used
  • Organic cotton farming produces far less CO2 emissions – Organic farming takes 1.5 tonnes of CO2 per acre per year, taken out of the atmosphere
  • Organic cotton farming uses up to 60% less water than conventional farming methods
  • Pesticide or herbicide residues are not released accidentally into the environment
  • Humans and animals are not exposed to chemical pesticides or herbicides
  • When the fabric is discarded, pesticides and herbicides are not returned to the earth in landfill, or enter into the recycling process.

From ‘bored’ to ‘awesome’!!!

“I’m #bored” seems to be one of the most criminal ways to spend a precious, fleeting moment.  Don’t you agree?! While gathering the #energy to clean up the house, finally take painting lessons or write that novel might be too ambitious a task for a short weekend, that doesn’t mean our creative urges have to go unexplored. In fact, you can actually infuse some originality into mundane tasks, by getting in—and staying in—the #creative mood. Whether that’s singing and dancing while we clean the house if you think healthy, you can be truly #awesome!!!

You are what you #eat!!!

You-are-what-you-eat

Yes, it’s true!!! What we eat can affect our creative energies. Processed foods are called #junk foods for a reason. They need to be ‘junked’! This is because they are high in #transfats, sodium and sugar, plus artificial ingredients. They eat away our creativity. Those foods can leave us feeling uninspired, dazed and really bored, not to mention lethargic, sick and disease-prone.

Creative eating

These #healthy creativity-boosting foods are sure to inspire you to make every moment a living art project infused with brilliance, clarity and innovation. And go #organic!

Complex carbohydrates
They provide the brain a steady stream of glucose throughout the day. Complex carbs take longer to break down and can be better regulated by the body and the brain. Try the following foods:

 Essential fatty acids

They help our brains process and understand information, necessary for creative thinking and problem solving. Your diet shoul be rich in all of the omegas, as in these foods:

Antioxidants
Keep your cells healthy by protecting them from free radical damage. Antioxidants also boost our immunity, which can keep us from getting sick. These foods are known to be rich in many amazing antioxidants including vitamin C, E and beta carotene:

  • Berries
  • Citrus fruits
  • Dark leafy green vegetables
  •  Broccoli
  •  Beets
  • Yams
  • Squash
  • Chocolate
  • Wheatgrass
  • Spirulina
  • Maca
  • Ginseng
  • Bee pollen
  • Green tea
  • Tulsi Tea
  • And the 30th way is most important, and it’s not about eating…just Go away! Do you remember the last time you were actually “alone with your thoughts”? Just take time out for yourself…to digest all this food and you will find that you are a #powerhouse of creativity in everything that you do in life.
    Happiness!!!
