The next big trend in clothing is . . . stuff you almost never have to WASH.
Companies have started using new fibers, and treatments, to make clothes which won’t STINK, even after you wear them for weeks or months – good for lazy people, but also good for the environment.
According to “Fast Company,” washing machines are responsible for 17% of the water we use in our homes, and a quarter of the carbon footprint of every piece of clothing comes from cleaning it.
One brand, which makes a seaweed fiber t-shirt, says you’ll save almost 800 gallons of water by not having to wash it as often as you’d wash a regular t-shirt.
(If you’re interested, a few of the brands leading the way are Unbound Merino, Pangaia, and Wool & Prince.)
