The holiday season is fast approaching, and parents are busy making their lists and checking them twice. But this year, lets consider gifts that not only delights your little ones but also contributes to a healthier planet. It's time to unwrap the reasons to opt for organic clothing this holiday season.
1. Safe for Kids and the Environment
Conventional cotton, often labeled as the "world's dirtiest crop," comes with a host of concerns. It's treated with toxic substances, including heavy metals, chlorine bleach, and pesticides like Monsanto's Roundup, which contains Glyphosate, a potential carcinogen. Not the kind of gift you want to give your loved ones.
In contrast, organic cotton, certified by Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), is cultivated without these harmful chemicals. It's a safe and eco-friendly choice that ensures your children's clothing is free from toxic residues and promotes healthier soil and water systems.
Fabric is knitted and printed in Los Angeles, California from organic yarn imported from India. The fabric is pre-shrunk but our products can still shrink with the first wash since cotton is a natural fiber. Plus organic cotton is not treated with chemicals to reduce shrinkage like conventional cotton. To make your favorite piece last longer and to save energy, wash cold inside out, delicate cycle, and line dry only.

2. Protecting Your Little Ones from Microplastics
Surprisingly, much of the clothing we buy for our children contains plastic materials. Polyester, nylon, acrylic, and polyamide are all plastic-based fabrics. These synthetic materials shed microplastics into the environment every time they're washed or worn. These tiny particles contribute to the growing issue of microplastic pollution, which can harm marine life and possibly affect human health.
By choosing organic clothing made from natural fibers like cotton, you reduce your child's exposure to these microplastics. Organic clothing is a safer bet for the environment and your kids.

Linen is breathable, naturally wicking, and inherently anti-microbial - keeping your little one fresh and cool. It is a great option for the hottest summer night but even for the coldest winter nights. Make sure your baby has the comfortable sleep that he deserves, while you will also enjoy a good night's sleep.
3. Prioritizing Health
While research is still ongoing, there's a legitimate concern about the health impacts of absorbing microplastics through the skin. As parents, we naturally want to minimize any potential risks to our children. Opting for organic clothing is a proactive step to reduce their exposure to these unknown health hazards.

4. Sustainable Farming Practices
Conventional cotton farming is notorious for its heavy pesticide use and detrimental environmental impacts. These chemicals not only pose health risks but also contaminate the air and water, harming our planet's fragile ecosystems. Organic cotton farming, on the other hand, promotes sustainable practices that protect the environment, conserve resources, and maintain soil fertility.
