Reasons to LOVE organic
Many people are unaware of the harmful chemicals in products they are using for their children and the damages these additives actually do. It can make a big difference for immediate well-being and comfort, but more so for long term effects for both personal health, and the impact on the environment.
If you haven’t used organic cotton before it would be a good idea to think about it. For those of you that are already in the loop with the all round benefits of organic products, why not take the next step and make sure your most precious children are safely clothed in comfortable and safe organic garments. Additionally, when it comes to accessories and toys – our organic products are safe for play, exploration and snuggling into!
Did you know, that an infant’s skin is 5 times thinner and more sensitive than an adults? This means that the children inadvertently absorb toxic materials much more, which results in a higher risk of topical skin irritation, as well as more complex long term health effects.
Organic cotton is known to feel better in terms of comfort levels – as the threads of cotton have not been broken down or damaged by chemicals used during the growing process. In this sense, organic cotton is a much better, more healthy choice as it will last longer, so you are getting a healthier, better quality product – for a similar cost.
The additional benefits of organic cotton are seen through the environmental impact.
When cultivating non-organic cotton, farmers uses up to 60% more of their expenses on pesticides and chemicals, this pollutes their land which results in the use of more and more chemicals. The farmers who grow organic cotton do not have those expenses and they get paid up to 30% more for their crops. In addition, organic clothing is produced under much better working conditions.
The bigger focus on sustainability, ecology and health have fortunately also made an impact in the clothing industry. Today we see more and more organic options also when it comes to clothing.
