The importance of using organic cotton in kids clothing

The style and shape are the obvious attributes we focus on when picking up a new kids clothing. But it is important too, how, where, and from what materials that kids clothes are made, especially when it comes to buying organic. The term organic means that something is grown in a chemical-free environment. Many parents often believe that the term is simply made up to con them into believing there is something special about the baby's clothes when there probably isn’t it. Most of the parents will pass on buying organic baby clothes, blankets, and thus miss the many benefits that their kids could get from wearing them. 

When shopping for kids clothing, you will find that most of the designs are made out of cotton. But the thing that the label won’t tell you is that unless that cotton is organic, it has often been treated with harmful chemicals that can’t always be washed away and thus could be absorbed by your kids skin. In fashion organic materials are becoming more important. In case that you are an animal lover, care about what goes in your body or are concerned with the welfare of others you also should know that wearing organic fabric has a major positive impact on your health and on the health of our planet. 

What makes organic materials like cotton so much better than non-organic ones?

The cotton industry uses insecticides and pesticides which pollutes natural resources, while organic cotton uses far less water because it is grown in a way that uses materials and methods that lessen the impact in our environment. The main benefit of making organic cotton kids clothing is that the crops aren't treated with insecticides, herbicides, pesticides and genetically modified organisms which are harmful for the entire ecosystem's welfare.

These pesticides are generally petroleum based and many have serious side effects. In our daily lives we even feel the harmful effects of fabrics and non-organic cottons: rashes, irritated skin and even dizziness and headaches can be caused by the chemical residue trapped in the threads.

Cost of Organic Cotton Kids Clothes

For the world in which we live, clothes made from organic cotton are  much better. If you have ever bought organic cotton t-shirts for yourself you will know how gorgeously soft they feel against your skin. Wearing organic cotton clothes is one thing but try sleeping in a bed with bamboo sheets and you will never go back to your previous bedding. The organic clothes at face value are clearly more expensive than the non-organic ones, but price aside there are a lot of pros to buying organic clothing. 

Organic kids clothes are super soft, very comfortable, chemical-free, non-toxic to the farmers and workers who produce the clothes, less likely to cause allergic skin reactions like eczema, and are significantly better for our environment. A newborn baby’s skin is very delicate and it is worth buying several good quality organic cotton vests and babygrows as opposed to dozens of cheap cotton ones. Young children in particular benefit from organic cotton ones. The fabric is very breathable, hard-wearing, so much softer, and really gentle on the skin. Without a doubt the cost difference between organic and non- organic clothes makes buying organic a dearer exercise. But those few extra pounds means higher quality and less of a need to buy more.
