Compostable clothing

Your clothes start out as organic material, but thanks to chemical dyes and plastic buttons by the time you’re done wearing them they have to go to the landfill. Swiss manufacturing company Freitag creates biodegradable clothing sourced from within 150 miles of their native Switzerland, minimizing their carbon footprint caused by excessive shipments. Freitag’s clothes are completely biodegradable; their shirt buttons are made from nuts, and pant buttons are metal can be unscrewed and reused. For now Freitag clothes are only available in Europe—again, limiting travel to minimize the carbon footprint. Hopefully soon we’ll see a similar initiative stateside.
