DID YOU EVER WONDER WHAT A STANDARD HOSPITAL GOWN IS MADE OF?

A standard hospital gown is made of 65% polyester/35% cotton. Polyester is made from chemical substances found mainly in petroleum. The chemicals are then manufactured into fibers for fabric production. Cotton is a natural substance but conventionally grown cotton contains many harmful chemicals. Synthetic/cotton blends are usually treated with formaldehyde to prevent shrinkage. By buying polyester/cotton fabric we are in turn supporting the production of greenhouse gases.

"The fabric industry is one of the most polluting on the planet.   Cotton soaks up 10% of the world’s pesticides and 25% of its insecticides, many of which are carcinogens and  extremely toxic, causing major water pollution and making workers and wildlife sick.  In fact, it takes half a pound  of chemicals to make one regular t-shirt.  Pesticide use isn’t the only problem associated with the cotton  industry.  Human rights abuses are common, and child labour is a serious issue.  According to Human Rights  Watch, over one million children pick leaf worm from cotton plants in Egypt alone every summer.   Seasonal child labour in cotton fields is actually government sanctioned there, but only for six hours a day, not  11 hours a day, seven days a week, as is common."  Adria Vasil author of Ecoholic
