Regardless of style, all items sold are created with the philosophy that fun and functional can coexist and appeal to everyone, while accessories should not carry a hefty environmental price tag.
Organics Beyond products are people-friendly and earth-conscious through every step of the manufacturing process. From cotton harvesting, to finished product, Organics Beyond apparel and accessories have a lower environmental impact than conventionally produced items, while still being affordable and fashionable. All items are made from a variety of eco-conscious textiles including: organic cotton, organic wool, and post-consumer recycled materials.
Organic cotton offers all the luxury of conventionally produced cotton without the hazardous environmental by-products. Proportionately, conventionally produced cotton requires more pesticides and insecticides than most other crops. Comparatively, organic cotton is grown without harmful pesticides, or insecticides. This means less chemical contamination of local lands and water supplies. Furthermore, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers 7 of the 15 commonly used pesticides as "likely", or "known" human carcinogens, or cancer-causing agents. Once harvested, organic cotton is treated with soluble, non-toxic dyes. These dyes carry less risk of factory run off, which threatens to contaminate the local habitat. Since organic cotton products lack metallic dyes, traditional chemical treatments and harsh bleaching, it is an ideal fabric for individuals with sensitive skin.
Organics Beyond also features apparel made from organic wool, both sheep and alpaca. Organic wool is sheered from animals raised on pesticide-free lands in a cruelty-free environment. It lacks all the chemical treats, harsh dyes, and bleaching customary with conventionally produced wool.
In addition to organically grown and treated fibers, Organics Beyond also offers a wide range of items made from post-consumer recycled materials. Discarded cardboard, bicycle tire inner tubes, and plastic water bottles are transformed into shoes, bags, and belts, among various other functional items. Purchasing post-consumer recycled products means embracing the recreation aspect of the axiom: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Organics Beyond features companies with an innovative approach to reusing resources while still offering fashion forward designs.
Featuring a diverse selection of everyday appeal and more at competitive prices, Organics Beyond is the ideal eco-conscious, online clothing destination.
