The Tentree Women's Highline Wool Intarsia - Oatmeal Pine Bark has the following sustainability attributes...
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.
While conventionally grown cotton is a natural fibre and will biodegrade at the end of its life cycle, it takes an incredible amount of water to produce in the first place and requires a lot of synthetic chemicals. There is a shift in the fashion industry towards use of organic cotton because it is grown with non-fossil-fuel based fertilisers, no pesticides and it allows for crop rotation. Through these less impactful farming practices, organic cotton uses less energy and helps improve soil quality which draws CO2 from the atmosphere thereby directly combating the climate crisis. It's worth noting that not all organically grown cotton is third party certified, nor does an organic cotton fibre mean that the dyeing and processing of the garment is environmentally friendly or that a living wage is paid to farmers.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
Natural materials like wool are great sustainable options because they will biodegrade at the end of their lifecycle, however, we must still carefully consider the way in which the wool has been sourced and produced. The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) is the most widely established certification for the responsible production of wool, auditing the entire chain of custody from the farm through to the garment manufacturer. Note that not all responsibly sourced wool will be RWS certified.
