Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
In clothing, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and the additive phthalate, are most used for printing ink on t-shirts. Both have been shown to leach out of an items surface over time, and some phthalates have been shown to be hazardous to human health. Some brands are now requiring screen-printing inks to be PVC and Phthalate free.
