Is Linen Really Eco Friendly?

Why linen is the most water friendly fabric out there
Our favorite and most eco-friendly fabric is linen.
Linen it's made from flax, which grows naturally and requires no additional water other than rainwater, making it very water friendly.
Linen and all of our materials, except some of the dead-stock, are recyclable and biodegradable. Not only that, in contrast to cotton, the flax plant is ultimately used, so it leaves no waste behind.
But there's more! According to the European Confederation, flax respects the environment and preserves the land, which is fantastic; one of the biggest problems affecting the environment is the destruction of the ground due to mono-crops.
Like most fabrics, it requires little energy to produce, and it has a good afterlife. Garments made from linen have a long and lasting life because flax is inherently strong, which reduces the need for starching during spinning and weaving.
Lastly, and the best piece of information is that The Advisory Commission Report to the European Parliament stated that flax cultivation positively affects eco-system diversity. It allows an "environmental pause." One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tones of CO2.
