The Best New Organic Clothing for Kids
Healthy, natural kids love the feel and comfort of organic, earth-friendly clothes. Organic and natural products come in nature's colors, or safe-color versions. It doesn't have to be plain, but it does have to be pure, safe and sustainable.
Why Organic Clothing for Kids is Important
Organic Clothing :: Good for Our Kids :: Good for Our Earth
GOOD FOR OUR KIDS Kids clothing should be designed for comfort and protection. Choosing only natural organically grown fibers provides the comfort and protection your kids deserve. Clothes made with organic fibers use natural or safe dyes that will not irritate skin or promote allergies.
GOOD FOR EARTH Organically grown materials from sustainable crops are processed and harvested without chemicals, pesticides, or harmful dyes. They're purely natural, and naturally pure. Most people don't know that conventional fabric manufacturing involves bleaches, formaldehyde, and chemical dyes, plus a host of other unknown chemicals and processes.

Not All Cotton Is Created Equal
Most Fluffy White Cotton is Full of Bleaches and Chemicals
White fluffy cotton may look like the height of purity, yet conventional cotton is anything but. Cotton is the second most pesticide-laden crop on the market, right after coffee and before tobacco. . . . Synthetic fabrics used in kids' clothing are no better. For the most part, these fabrics are derived from petrochemicals. They off-gas throughout their lifetimes. . . . The most common and harmful fabric-finishing agent is formaldehyde. It's a well-known neurotoxin and carcinogen. It also causes allergies and irritates the skin."
