A Good reason to dress Down!

What do you wear to work? Synthetic fabrics may require expensive dry cleaning involving potent chemicals that can contribute to air and water pollution when not handled properly. The alternative?

Check the label. Avoid clothing that requires dry cleaning.

Choose cotton and wool. Natural fibres are easier to care for at home. Often they can be washed in cool water and hung out to dry, reducing chemical use and energy, too.

Try fabric blends. Fabrics that are a blend of cotton and synthetic fibres can usually be laundered at home.

Dress down. Fancier outfits require more dry cleaning than casual wear. Encourage your office to implement a "casual day" on Fridays.
