of the Moon’s
Hemp Enlightenment line are designed, patterned, manufactured,
dyed and tagged (using eco-friendly materials) in the USA in small,
100% sweatshop-free facilities that are family owned and operated.
They choose to use eco-friendly materials like hemp, tencel and
organic cotton that are known for durability and long-life. By
selecting fabrics that are not only grown and processed using eco-friendly
methods but that also last longer than conventional fabrics, they
are able to produce clothing with longer lifecycles than the average
garment. They opt to create pieces that are fashion-forward but
also timeless for the same reason: Designs that are stylish but
that can also be worn for multiple seasons and that surpass fads
and trends are less likely to end up in landfills.
