You are wearing Petroleum : The Microplastics In Our Blood

We Are Covered in Petroleum: A Deeper Look at Microplastics and Sustainable Fashion

We walk around bathed in a sea of oil. Not the literal kind, thankfully, but a pervasive presence of petroleum-based products woven into the fabric of our lives – from the clothes we wear to the food we eat. This hidden reality becomes particularly concerning when we zoom in on the world of microplastics, tiny plastic fragments less than 5 millimeters in size, and their insidious infiltration into our bodies and the environment.

At the forefront of this plastic invasion stands polyester, the champion of fast fashion. Its cheap production and durability fueled the industry’s rapid growth, but at a hidden cost. Every wash of a polyester garment sheds thousands of microscopic fibers, contaminating our waterways and eventually finding their way into our food chain and even our bloodstream.

Professor Dick Vethaak, a leading expert in microplastic research, paints a grim picture. He explains how these tiny fibers can pass through the intestinal lining and potentially enter our organs, raising concerns about long-term health impacts.

But amidst this unsettling reality, a beacon of hope emerges. Our upcoming brands, [ & ], stands firmly against the tide of plastic pollution. We believe in fashion that’s truly sustainable: clothes crafted from 100% biodegradable materials, free from any trace of petroleum-based plastics.

Our journey begins in the heart of India, where we source single-origin, natural fibers like organic cotton, Linen, Wool, Silk etc. These materials, nurtured by the earth, decompose without leaving behind a trail of harmful microplastics.

But sustainability goes beyond materials. We believe in transparency and education. Our dedicated posts and short videos in social media and on our websites delves into the fascinating world of eco-conscious fashion, sharing our manufacturing processes and sparking conversations about the impact of our clothing choices.

We invite you to join us on this mission. Together, we can break free from the grip of petroleum and rewrite the narrative of fashion. Choose clothes that nourish the planet, not pollute it. Choose garments that speak of conscious living and respect for the environment. Choose to be a part of the solution, not the problem.

Here are some key takeaways from this blog:

  • Microplastics, primarily from polyester clothing, are a growing threat to our health and the environment.
  • Sustainable fashion solutions exist, using natural and biodegradable materials like natural cotton, linen, silk and wool etc.
  • Transparency and education are crucial in promoting conscious clothing choices.
