Wisdom at Work: Organic Fashion (2002)
Are you eco-friendly, but wish there were more options for organic clothing for everyday wear or even for your wedding day? Marci Zaroff, founder and president of Under the Canopy, explains that cotton, although marketed as “natural,” is actually one of the most heavily sprayed crops in the world, using more than 25% of the world's cancer-causing insecticides. Because there is a need for organic fabric, Marci decided to create a choice for consumers who want to purchase more eco-friendly clothes, but still want them soft, stylish and durable. Michelle Kozin of Organic Weddings explains how couples can create organic weddings – involving everything from invitations to wedding gowns – that are still fashionable and classy.
