Non Plastic Basics This Plastic Free July

My 4 Plastic Free Basics Favourites From Bhumi - Vinita (Founder)

The word basic is so beautiful, simple and somewhat overlooked. 'Basic' is defined as 'Forming an essential foundation, the starting point, the fundamental'... For me, knowing I am wearing or sleeping in the essential foundation of nothing toxic, laden with chemicals and no child labour is the most powerful foundation I could dream of. Knowing what is in the clothes you wear and have close to your skin every day is so important. I recently was in the gathering of 5 friends and I challenged them to look at the labels of their clothing. Synthetic, viscose, polyester, rayon and nylon were the words embedded in all of the labels and that too of some well known eco brands. So these words are basically other words for plastic, plastic, plastic and more plastic.


The importance of questioning and asking what the label means is a fascinating learning journey of how plastic is sneakily snuck into pretty much everything we wear and use and knowing how the product became its soft textile state is another learning curve of chemical and toxic processing especially in the case of bamboo.


Sustainable basics are your wardrobe essentials - timeless elegant simple essential foundation pieces that can be mixed and matched, layered up and down and accessorised to complement your personality and style every day of your life through all seasons without going in and out of fashion. Even though in some of our products we use recycled PET bottles for our elastane and recycled content, This Plastic Free July I want to share with you my top pieces that I constantly rotate in my days/weeks/months for organic cotton sustainable basics that are 100% Organic Cotton with no blends of any other materials just beautiful organic cotton.

"The fashion industry is the second-biggest pollutant of fresh water on the planet. It has such a huge environmental impact and such a big human impact. And it’s just not enough for me anymore that it’s a beautiful item or a beautiful piece. I want to know that it’s not leaving a negative mark. … Fashion is something that touches us every single day. We get dressed every single day. I want to look good and feel good and do good, and that, to me, is luxury.” ~ Emma Watson
