Eco-friendly baby clothes

Buy organic baby clothes is a great way to introduce your baby to green living. For parents and grandparents, there is nothing more important than keeping your baby healthy. Dressing your baby in organic clothing is a responsible choice that will protect them from harm. There are many small steps you can take to become eco-conscience consumer, and you can start by purchasing organic baby clothing.

Why buy organic baby clothes?

There are many reasons why you should dress your baby in organic clothing.

Porous skin. A baby’s skin is more porous and thinner than adults. This means that a baby's skin absorbs things very easily than an adult's skin.

Skin Sensitivity. A babies' skin is far more sensitive than adults' skin. Fibers used to make organic clothes are not treated with pesticides, some argue that organic baby clothes are the only way to go.

Less pesticide and toxin exposure. Organic baby clothing is processed without harmful chemicals or pesticides. More than 25% of pesticides used worldwide are used on cotton plants. Many of the pesticides used on cotton are considered to be very dangerous to your health. More than 10% of the world’s insecticides are used on cotton. For every pair of cotton jeans and t-shirt produced, 1 pound of pesticides and chemical fertilizers are used.

Longer lasting Conventionally produced cotton material lasts 10-20 washes before it starts to break down. Organic cotton material lasts for about 100 washes before it begins to wear down. This is because the cotton fibers in conventionally produced cotton take so much abuse in production because it goes through scouring, bleaching, dying, softeners, formaldehyde spray, and flame and soil retardants before it is even shipped to be cut for patterns.

Better conditions for others. Organic clothing uses cotton that is not farmed in the conventional ways. Safer methods such as crop rotation, physical removal of weeds instead of use of herbicides, hand hoeing, using beneficial insects to counteract the bad are used to produce the crops. Safer farming methods creates better working conditions, water quality is not compromised by run-off, and strong healthy soil.

Less energy. Organic baby clothing is also made using less energy than traditional baby clothing.
