What is eco-friendly clothing?
Eco-friendly clothing is made from sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton, bamboo, hemp, modal, tencel (fabrics made from wood pulp), lyocell, and soy. It can also refer to recycled and/or fair trade materials.

What is vegan clothing?
Vegan clothing does not contain any animal products. This includes leather, suede, fur, wool, silk, down feathers, etc.

Why do I want vegan clothing?
It is a more compassionate and ethical choice. While the cruelty in leather and fur is apparent, it is not so obvious in wool, silk, and down feathers, but these materials can be just as inhumane. For example, 3,000 silkworms are killed (by being steamed alive) to make just 1 pound of silk", down feathers are cruelly plucked from live geese, and the raising and shearing sheep for wool can be exploitative and cruel.
