Let's get scientific:
What is a synthetic fiber? NYLON, ACRYLIC, & POLYESTER, RAYON, OR SPANDEX.
How are synthetic fibers produced? By reactions.
- Oil-based products make polymer pellets + heat = A liquid state polymer.
- Then this liquid is forced through small holes to produce strands or fibers.
What is made from these synthetic fibers? Everything from running shorts to yoga pants to fleece jackets and more.
Wait. We are not asking you to stop exercising or wearing fleece. We believe knowledge is everything.
This is how these "microfibers" get into the ocean.
One piece of clothing can release 700,000 fibers!
What can we do?
At Callina we are believing in a better way. We are using only natural or organic products.
Choose natural fabrics over synthetic ones. But we know that cannot always be a choice.
When choosing, pick garments of higher quality they shed less in the wash. Brands like Patagonia.
Rethink our buying patterns. RETHINK- Fast fashion / overconsumption.
LESS IS MORE!
