4 REASONS TO WEAR ORGANIC CLOTHES
Always wondered what the hype was about organic clothing? We give you 4 reasons to have your little ones wear organic clothes:
1 SAFE FOR BABIES
Anything used for conventional cotton cultivation and even afterwards (during dyeing, for example) can end up in the fiber and create allergies or skin reactions. Moreover, chemicals found in conventional cotton are found in babies's little bodies, misread with endocrine disruptors - which have negative impact on babies's health.
Organic cotton, grown without chemicals, is therefore completely harmless and even becomes hypoallergenic, an important point for babies' sensitive skin!
2 SAFE FOR THE PLANET
Classic cotton cultivation is one of the most polluting in the world. In short, the chemical fertilizers used (in large quantities) cause pollution of the air, soil and groundwater. In addition, it requires (very) high water consumption. In short, harming the environment!
Organic cotton is, as its name suggests, cultivated according to the principles of organic farming, therefore without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. In addition, the soil must have received no insecticide or herbicide for at least 3 years to accommodate an organic crop. The absence of these chemicals makes it easier for the soil to renew itself, thereby preserving the surrounding species. Finally, this method of cultivation uses less water and, more generally, less energy.
3 SAFE FOR WORKERS
People who grow and manufacture organic cotton are not exposed to diseases related to pesticides and other chemicals used in the production of conventional cotton.
In addition, the organic fabric tends to democratize with the creation of standards, such as the GOTS label, which guarantees not only an organic farming method but also respect for people and working conditions around the concepts of fair trade, between other. Read all about the GOTS label.
4 A SUPERIOR QUALITY
Organic cotton offers superior quality: its fiber is thicker but also softer! The garment will therefore be more durable and more comfortable to wear for your children!
