In the past few years, we have seen an increase in the availability of organic products, specially produce (fruit, vegetables, herbs) meat and poultry. The emergence is often accompanied by debates on the health benefits of organic and natural products. However, science and numbers do not lie. The past decades have seen a large increase in the number of cancers and other diseases linked directly to hormones, preservatives, petroleum products and other synthetic materials introduced in everything we touch.
Zanboor Tennis and Activewear clothing is 100% organic. This means that there are "zero" synthetic materials in every garment. In order for this line of clothing to achieve organic certification, they must go through a rigorous process. Growers must produce cotton without synthetic fertilizers or toxic herbicides and pesticides, from non-genetically engineered seed. No dyes or un-natural coloring are permitted.
Think about the fact that clothing is sometimes the source of contact dermatitis, an allergic reaction. Scientists claim that dyes, resins and formaldehyde used in processing fabrics are likely sources of reactions, and note that synthetic fibers and wool can act as irritants. Thus, organic clothing, especially cotton, made without these potential allergens and irritants may feel better on the skin.
Organic clothing is 100% recyclable. Imagine the millions of old clothes discarded every year, that end up in the dump sites and have to be either incinerated or buried, harming our environment in either case.
We are born of the earth, and shall remain here.
