Organic cotton, Eco-friendly, Ethical and sustainable clothes. When it comes to our kids, going organic is the best way to keep them healthy…. and stylish!
Synthetic materials like rayon and polyester are known to cause respiratory infection, skin irritation, and to emit hormone disrupters. Even worse, over one third of the world’s pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals are exclusively used to grow cotton. If you are interested in learning more about how traditional cotton and synthetic materials are attacking our planet and our health, read more about the monster on your back.
Baby’s and young children have thinner and more porous skin than we do and they absorb the toxins found in their environments like a sponge. In fact, all of us absorb more through our skin than we do through our stomachs every single day! The skin can absorb toxins in as little as 6 seconds. Choosing organic and natural fibers can also protect your baby from many chemically induced allergies and sensitivities.
We don’t often consider the textiles our clothes are made of when we shop for baby clothes. Instead, we look for clothes that are comfortable, cute, and warm. We do not think that these chemical laden garments lay on their skin all day, often ending up in their mouth as well! Luckily the world is full of organic natural and safe textiles that are soft, warm, and cute as can be.
Here are some of our favorite eco-friendly and safe brands.
