It’s a very good question and there are many answers to this. I’d like to ask you a few questions though.
More and more parents are buying organic clothes, diapers, bedding, skin products and many more items for their little ones because they want to protect their sensitive skin against chemicals. Non organic cotton is often sprayed with pesticides in the fields and when turned into a garment it can be dyed or bleached with toxic chemicals. This is bad for the environment and for the garment workers, so why should it be good for you to put directly on your skin?
Food products and beauty products have to have a label that shows what ingredients they contain, but have you ever wondered how come this doesn’t apply to clothing? If it was clearly labelled how clothes were made, which chemicals it has been exposed to, would that make you reconsider a purchase?
The environmental benefits of swapping your future purchases to organic are great and they will also mean the garment workers will have safer working conditions as well. You can watch The True Cost to see what non organic means in the fast fashion industry.
There is a social media campaign running where people are asking #whomademyclothes. I’d also like to know how it was made.
If you are wondering how our organic clothes were made, you can read more about it here.
