Why Wear Soy Fabric?
Cotton is the worlds most used fiber, though commonly touted as all natural it is the most sprayed crop on earth! In the United States alone 80 million pounds of chemicals are used each year on conventional crops. One pound of cotton fiber has been sprayed with 1 1/4 pounds of chemicals by the time it is done and 7 of the top 15 pesticides used have been labeled a probable carcinogens to humans by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Alternative fibers, such as soybean, are sustainable and don't need chemicals to grow effectively. Soybean is a renewable resource and the Soy Protein Fiber (SPF) is made using by products of the soybean industry.
