🌱Sustainability: Linen, the original eco-friendly fibre, is still one of the most sustainably-produced, biodegradable and hardy fabrics on the market. Flax, the plant linen is created from, requires minimal water and nearly every part of the plan is used, creating little waste. Linen production uses minimal amounts of electricity, and no chemicals are used to produce linen’s yarn. It’s also incredibly strong, and can withstand high temperatures, making it an excellent choice for long & hard-wearing garments.
💞Named in celebration of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a congresswoman and environmental activist who is one of the sponsors of the Green New Deal, a massive push to convert to 100% clean energy, amongst other urgent eco policies.
