1 – An All-Natural Baby
Would you like to say goodbye to pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, processing chemicals and artificial dyes? All these things are used to create the Conventional Cotton used in most baby clothes. We work so hard to protect our tiny ones in so many ways, and yet they are exposed to many harmful elements just by cuddling with their favorite blankie. I found this great chart that demonstrates the differences in the way Conventional vs. Organic Cotton is made – check it out here to learn more.
2 – An Eco-Friendly Baby
All that junk used to process Conventional Cotton ends up in our natural environment – it leaches into the ground, is poured off into the water, and dissipates into the air. Every year thousands of cotton workers die from chemical-related illnesses. Sad! And preventable.
3 – A Soft, Snuggly Baby
Because it’s free from so much processing, Organic Cotton is extremely soft! Makers of Organic Cotton products tend to be deeply committed to the high-quality and luxuriousness of their fabric. Check it out sometime – go to Target and feel the Organic sheets compared to the Conventional Cotton sheets. You’ll be amazed!
Newborns especially have super sensitive skin. They often break out in rashes, dry patches, sore little bumps and even baby acne. Have you ever wondered what causes those things? The most common answer is a chemical irritant! This is why so many wash their baby items with special “gentle” detergents. But why not go a step further and make sure their clothes and blankets are free of many harmful elements from the start?
