There has been a lot of concern about ecology and our environment in the last few years in the wake of growing pollution in all spheres of life. There has been a conscious effort to adapt to a pollution free world whether it is fuel, housing, food, and even clothing. Yes, the world is going greener. Organic clothing is an endeavor to go back to clothes that are produced with organically produced material, avoiding man made materials. Some of the materials that are used for such type of clothing are wool, hemp, cotton, and bamboo. These are considered to be eco friendly as they do not cause any harm to our environment, especially the earth, air or water.
While growing materials for making organic clothing, special emphasis is laid on not using pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Instead, help of beneficial bacteria and insects such as ladybug is taken so that the material is totally safe for the environment and for use by people.
Clothing is that part of our life which remains in contact with our bodies, especially skin for majority of time in a day. Even when we go to bed we are wearing something or the other and hence it can be said safely that we remain in contact with clothes almost 24 hours a day. To prevent any harm to the people from coming in contact with clothes that are made using toxic materials, the word organic was coined and clothes were manufactured with materials produced organically. It is a fact that the first thing that comes to mind when the word organic is used is food. But certainly there are more ways to remain in touch with nature, and organic clothing is a step in that direction.
It is a fact that more pollution is caused by clothing industry than any other industry as so many harmful chemicals and substances are used in making countless varieties of apparels. All sorts of pesticides are used in growing cotton without caring about the environment. We tend to think that these pesticides do not affect us as cotton is not a food item to be taken internally but we forget that all these pollutants are thrown in water thus causing incalculable harm to our water supply. When producing materials organically, special care is taken to avoid all sorts of toxic materials and pesticides so that the material is eco friendly, and the clothes produce from it are also absolutely safe for human population. Even when dyeing these organically produced clothes, care is taken not to use any synthetic dyes and only natural plant extracts and other herbs are used to produce colorful clothing.
Today, there is a growing demand of this type of clothing in the market as people have grown conscious of the harmful effects of synthetically produced clothes as also the harm done to the environment in producing these clothes. The number of manufacturers and marketers of organic clothing is also increasing to fulfill the demands of the people. Especially for babies, people prefer to use organic clothing as their skin is soft and delicate.

Rohnert Park, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2015
Zenion Industries, Inc. has launched a first ever crowd-funding campaign on the web site indiegogo at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ion-a-gro which offers people worldwide an opportunity to experience Zenion’s patent pending ionization technology. The company’s new business model enables the benefits of increased crop production to be shared free, through donations of product, to third world farmers.
The Ion-A-Gro device is an Eco-friendly, solar powered electronic unit which is mounted above plants to supply them with an increased amount of ions during photosynthesis. Decades of research have proven that plants respond quite favorably to increased ionization in a natural, non-harmful way by growing healthier and producing more flora, fruit, and vegetables. Herbivores, such as ants and aphids are also discouraged from invading plants under treatment, thereby reducing pesticide use. Until now, it has not been practical to treat plants in this manner, but the Zenion technology changes all of that!
Successful experimentation has been done on numerous types of plants including grapes, tomatoes, beans, cannabis and sugar cane. From the backyard garden to large scale crop management, this technology has the potential to increase food production substantially. With a growing world population estimated to be 9 billion by the year 2040, we need more “Green” answers like this to feed people and livestock.
Zenion was established in 1979 and distinguished itself as an expert in the field of ionization physics and electronics by developing and patenting many products utilizing ion technology.
For more information about the technology and product, please review Zenion’s web site at: http://www.zenion.org

Algae International Group, Inc. (OTC: ALGA), through its subsidiary American Seed & Oil Company, Inc., today announced it will work with a new startup, World Hemp Oil, to supply domestically grown and refined hemp CBD oil to produce and market the EpiVape© for seizure disorders.
World Hemp Oil is a wholesale distributor of CBD oil comparable to Charlotte’s Web Medical Marijuana (MMJ) strains. But unlike Charlotte’s Web, World Hemp’s CBD Oil is legal and available in all 50 United States.
The EpiVape© was inspired by World Hemp Oil founder and CEO Christopher Cain, who suffers spasms from a spinal cord injury and has been able to mitigate suffering with CBD oil therapy. CBD oil has been shown to reduce symptoms in neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. The company has a Crowdfunding campaign to finance commercialization of the vaporizer: http://www.epivape.com
American Seed & Oil Company is an early mover in the emerging state-legalized Hemp and Medical Marijuana cultivation markets. The company was recently recognized by NPR as the largest hemp grower in Vermont. The company recently announced Medical Marijuana Pilots in two states, a first step toward commercialization of a larger operation, as evolving state and federal laws permit.

Hemp was one of the first crops to be domesticated by early farmers, some eight to ten thousand years ago, and remained one of our most useful and valuable crops right up until the industrial revolution.
Hemp was originally domesticated for its nutritious seeds and tough fibres. A hardy plant, it grows quickly and will tolerate a wide variety of soils and climates. It is probably the single most versatile crop of all – almost all parts of the plant can be used for an incredible array of purposes.
The fibres of hemp are easily worked and were used to make cloth and sacking. It is believed that hemp stems were being pulped to produce paper some two hundred years before the invention of paper made from wood pulp. Up until the 1870s, hemp paper accounted for around 70% of the world’s paper production. Hemp was also used to produce canvas to make sails, and indeed the word ‘canvas’ is derived from the same root as Cannabis – the scientific name for hemp and its sister species.
Hemp was also used to produce rope, and all the world’s navies used hempen rope for their ships right up until the 19th century. Hemp seeds are highly nutritious and oily, and were used to feed humans and animals, or ground to make a flour used for baking. Although our ancestors didn’t know it, we now know that hempseed contains all ten amino acids essential for human nutrition, the only plant product known to do so. Not only that, but it also contains a high concentration of the essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, giving hempseed a real claim to that much-abused title of ‘superfood’.
Despite its many uses, hemp production began to decline during the 19th century, when new materials and new ways of working flax, cotton, wool and other materials became available. Advances in wood-pulping technology also led to a massive decline in hemp paper production, a situation that could well have been reversed in the 1930s were it not for a vicious smear campaign that led to hemp being banned completely in the United States.
Hempseed oil can be refined and used in much the same way as oils derived from petrochemicals, and today it is used to produce plastics, cosmetics, lubricants, paints, inks and more. Petrochemicals are of course non-renewable, whereas hemp can be grown every year.
Hemp has also recently found favour as a building material. The stems and fibres add strength and flexibility to composite building materials. Concretes made using hemp can weigh as little as 15% as much as concretes reinforced with steel.
Today hemp cultivation is still illegal in the USA, and subject to licenses and regulation in most other countries, and hemp remains a marginal crop. Hemp is such a versatile plant, that offers us an environmentally friendly and renewable way to produce food, fabric, energy, paper, building materials, plastics, cosmetics and more, and we should all take more interest in the opportunities that hemp offers us.
