The Cedar Myth

Lavender

Cedar has been a long time go to for those who want to ditch chemically filled mothballs for a natural way to protect their garments against moth damage. Plastered around the internet as the best, and the only natural way to deter moths, some even spend thousands building closets made of center trying to keep their luxury garments in mint condition. But some speculation is starting to arise. Is cedar the cure-all for garment protection?

WHAT’S THE TRUTH?

Cedar may be an effective method, but only for a short time. The fumes from cedar are only toxic to moths when at very concentrated levels. The fumes from cedar will quickly dissipate, leaving the garments in your closet unprotected from moths. Your custom cedar closet will be no match when fumes drop to a level that is no longer harmful to moths.

IF NOT CEDAR, WHAT?

Many are turning to herbs such as lavender as a longer lasting moth deterrent! Cache~Cachet’s herbal sachets were custom made by an Oregon herbalist. The fresh fumes from six herbs protect garments stored in our garment bags and covers for one year. You no longer need to worry if cedar is doing the trick. Replace herbal sachets yearly, and your garment will be protected for life! All Cache~Cachet products come with one sachet(one year of moth prevention) and replacement sachets can be purchased individually in our shop.

Fast Fashion – Paying the Price

FastFashion

Fast Fashion is one of the most popular trends of 2017 – The drive of clothing sales through the desire of new clothes, rather than the need. Shopping used to be done when holes were found in garments when pants became faded and ragged. Now we buy new outfits faster than we can wear our current ones.

Why is this so bad?

13 trillion tons of clothing ends up in landfills every year in the U.S alone. These cheaply made clothing items rip after wearing them only a few times. Clothing used to be donated and consigned, but now these quickly damaged clothes are finding their way to landfills, skipping second-hand stores. When these clothes sit in landfills for up to 200 years, chemicals from dyes pollute the ground, leaving the soil and groundwater beneath contaminated.

What’s even worse? The fast fashion industry’s C02 emissions are set to increase by 60% by 2030. Not to mention the risks were running with the pollutions of scarce drinking waters.    

What can we do?

Luckily YOU can make a difference! Investing in more expensive, quality constructed garments you will save money. These quality clothes will last many years, sometimes even many decades. When you want to rid of old garments, you will be able to collect some cash from selling to second-hand stores. This will not only cut back on landfill waste but give you some money to invest in new clothing.

To top it all off, you should spend some time learning proper garment care. Store you clean investment garments in a Cache~Cachet garment cover to ensure for years of protection from dirt, dust, and moths.
