Used Clothing: Distressed, faded clothing has so much personality that manufacturers have been refining techniques for years to create apparel that looks like fourth-generation hand-me-downs. Why not just buy the real thing? Go on treasure hunts to Salvation Army, Goodwill, or garage sales to find authentic retro styles.
Have a clothing swap with your friends and family, many times we borrow their clothes anyway this way they are still new clothes to us and we are helping the environment.
Organic Cotton: All-around smarter choices are pesticide-free, untreated, uncolored organic cotton garments, or those tinted with natural "fiber-reactive" or "cold pad batch" dyes. Or try naturally "color grown" cotton fibers, often heirloom varieties, that have been bred for colors ranging across the spectrum.
