First of all, welcome to Janet Hambly and frederique via Bloglovin.
Rhonda had a Friday link, a couple of weeks ago, to this thoughtful idea. You can find the article here
As part of my road to liberation from using/wearing potentially harmful ingredients on me and my family, I read this article with interest. I have needed some more winter clothing for a few years now and took this oppurtunity to invest in some 100% cotton clothing or clothing that was at least 50% cotton or another 'natural' product, if I found something I really liked.
My new mantra for de-cluttering/going natural is this: 1 item in 1 item out - now how simple is that.
I found 4 lovely long sleeved shirts that were 100% cotton, 3 pairs of trousers likewise, 1 long sleeved shirt that was 100% Viscose and a jumper with a 50% Wool/Acrylic blend (read here for ingredients of Viscose). Only thing letting me down was the Acrylic part of the jumper - but it is called the slow movement for very good reasons. It is mainly about changing your attitude and that can take time.
Out went 8 items of clothing, to a charity shop to balance out my wardrobe. Some cotton but now too big for me. I then put in the pile 3 more jumpers that are 100% Acrylic. All in all, I feel that is a good start.
I tend to keep my clothes for years and years. The trousers I put in the charity bag are several years old but have never fitted on the waist properly, always having a saggy sticking out bit at the back of the waist. The new ones have a fully elastic waist.
A few cotton stretched tops have gone into my rag rug bag.
