Goulburn Mulwaree Council Joins the Plastic Free July Challenge | Goulburn Post

In a city with a huge Merino as one of its main tourist attractions, there is all the more reason to buy clothes made from natural fibers such as wool. While clothing is not or should not be ‘single use’, avoiding products that shed small plastic particles on a daily basis is good for the environment. Garments made of fabrics such as cotton, linen, wool, hemp, viscose, modal and Tencel are not made of oil and do not release plastic microfibres. Synthetic materials used in clothing, such as polyester, nylon, and lycra, are essentially made of plastic and are best avoided if possible.
