Why choose organic baby apparel?

 

Did you know that traditionally grown cotton accounts for up to 25% of the pesticides used worldwide. That is a large amount of pesticides used  for  growing just one crop. Many of the cotton fabrics are then treated again with formaldehyde and dyed with toxic dyes before sewing them into finished products.
These chemicals and pesticides that are being used are affecting us in many ways. They end up in our soil, our water and our air. These pesticides and chemicals are affecting the health of  the farmers, their families and the surrounding communities.
Organic cotton is grown and sewn without the use of chemicals which means your baby will not be exposed to them.
Organic farming continues to increase. You can help support these farmers by purchasing organic products such as soft organic baby clothes, organic baby bedding and other organic products. By choosing these natural alternatives for your family you will be protecting  your children, my children and the environment we live in.
