“The body shuts down when it has too much to bear; goes its own way quietly inside, waiting for a better time, leaving you numb and half alive.” – Jeanette Winterson

This is the state of our planet Earth at present.

It is shutting down and going into its shell, to recover and waiting for a more thriving environment. This pandemic of Covid 19 is a clear sign of these changes. We have been careless, and not taken care of our environment and the planet that nurtures us, gives us life and allows us to continue our existence. We have been taking our available natural resources for granted for too long, just taking and consuming. This gluttony is now showing signs of strain, and revolt. There is just no more space for Earth to absorb all that is thrown its’way.

It needs time, and help to rejuvenate and replenish itself.

We constantly cut trees, destroy natural habitats, pollute our seas and air, contaminate the soil… all in the name of development. But what is the real meaning of development? We take a step forward towards improved lifestyles, more prosperous economies and better living conditions, but we do not want to recognize the carbon footprint left behind with each step.

Its high time we start paying attention to the present situation, and realise that progress and better living is only possible by taking the environment and nature into consideration while planning for the future.

Clothes are a major contributor to polluting the environment. One positive way to combat this problem is to choose Eco friendly clothing. It is the need of the hour. But what does one mean by Eco friendly clothing?
