16 organic clothes to keep your baby’s wardrobe sustainable and stylish

Babies are new to the world. (That’s kind of their thing.) And while making sure their entry into society is elegant, it’s paramount to protect their vulnerable little bodies when swaddled. That’s why choosing organic baby clothes is just as important for your child as it is for him. the environment.

Although cotton is a natural fiber, most is grown using fertilizers and genetically modified seeds. It decreases biodiversity, requires a significant amount of pesticides and insecticides and has a significant water footprint. In India, it takes about 20,000 liters of water to produce one kilogram of cotton. Buying organic products reduces both water consumption and excess chemicals, produces fewer emissions and is inherently safer for sensitive skin.

Whether the little one in your life is yours or that of someone you love, giving long-lasting baby clothes is as simple as giving special attention. To help you out, we’ve compiled some tips to keep in mind when shopping for the next baby set.

Chemicals and Materials to Avoid When Buying Sustainable Baby Clothes

When left unchecked, clothing production involves a ton of chemicals that are dangerous to babies (or anyone, for that matter). Below are some common chemicals and materials to avoid on your next baby shopping spree.

  • Talc: The chatter is often found in baby powder and can also be found in the clothing production process. Talc is linked to skin inflammation and irritation.
  • Tributyltin: Found in cloth diapers – as some garments come with a diaper included – this is a product to watch out for.
  • Flame retardants: You will often see that many baby pajamas are made without retardants, they are not entirely irrelevant.
