Now that the earth is still being polluted far too much and everyone is going to see that we all have to do something about it, the term 'sustainable' has become almost a trend in itself. In addition to sustainable cars, solar panels and electrical appliances, there are also sustainable children's clothing brands available. Read more about the benefits of sustainable children's clothing and where you can purchase them!
Sustainable baby clothing
More and more people see that it is necessary that we all live more sustainably. Especially if we want the next generation, so your little innocent child, to have a good life. Nowadays everything can be more sustainable, think of electric cars and energy-saving devices. But clothing can also become more sustainable. What does that actually mean?
Sustainable children's clothing or in fact all clothing that has the label 'sustainable' is clothing made from materials that have been grown in an environmentally friendly way. So for example without aggressive pesticides and chemicals.
Sustainable children's clothing made of bamboo or organic cotton
A good example of sustainable children's clothing is children's clothing made from bamboo or organic cotton. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and artificial fertilizers. This reduces the burden on the environment.
Another advantage of organic cotton is that it is softer than the 'normal' version, precisely because no chemicals have been discussed.
In addition, it is claimed that children with sensitive skin can wear better organic cotton because it irritates the skin less.
Besides organic cotton, children's clothing from bamboo is also on the rise. Bamboo is a fast-growing plant that only needs a little water and sunlight to grow. There is therefore no need to use pesticides. That makes it a sustainable product. The only disadvantage of bamboo is that the processing of the plant into clothing does not always take place in an environmentally friendly manner. Here are many more steps to take. Probably those steps will also be made, since sustainability is still super hot.
The advantages of organic cotton and bamboo are that these substances breathe so that your child does not get too hot quickly. In addition, bamboo seems easy to absorb sweat without sticking musty smells. This is also very ideal for adults who suffer from sweaty feet and then bamboo socks are a godsend.
Finally, bamboo clothing feels super soft and is very comfortable. So wonderful for your little one!
Responsible children's clothing
Buying only organic cotton or bamboo clothing may be more sustainable than other clothing, it does not immediately say that you are also doing a very responsible job. Because not all clothing made from organic cotton is equally sustainable and it can also prevent the fabric from being sustainable, but the people who produce your durable children's clothing work under poor conditions.
Truly responsible children's clothing is clothing that is truly sustainable and fair trade. To determine this, you can check which label is included. Note: there are also big differences here. View a handy overview of quality marks and what they stand for. Good labels for organic fair trade clothing are: Fair for Life, Naturtextil IVN, European Ecolabel, Cotton made in Africa and Global Organic Textile Standard (COTS).
