Why choose organic fibres for your baby?
Generally speaking, organic cotton products cost a little more than ordinary
cotton, so why on earth would anyone want to buy them? Here are some factors
that make people choose organic cotton or other fibres that can be grown
without the use of chemicals, such as hemp and bamboo.
Kinder to your environment and the people that
work to produce cotton
Conventional cotton production is extraordinarily heavy in the use of
chemicals, using something like a quarter of the world's insecticides
and at least 10% of the world's pesticides. These chemicals inevitably
find their way into local water supplies and affect the balance of local
eco-systems. In addition, many of the chemicals used are likely or known
to be detrimental to human health. In the world's poorer regions, where
much of the world's cotton is produced, cotton workers are regularly
exposed to these hazardous chemicals. Organic cotton farmers are leading
the way in changing this, and buying organic products will support them.
For cotton to be certified as organic the land is allowed to 'de-toxify'
and farmers turn to sustainable eco-friendly agricultural practices.
Better quality fabric
The chemicals used to grow conventional cotton weaken the fibres. This
means, that cotton grown without the use of chemicals produces a superior
quality garment. Organic cloth will wear, wash and dry well, making
clothes or nappies last and last!
Kinder to your baby
Organic cotton is wonderfully soft and chemical free. Perfect against
baby's delicate, absorbent skin whether in clothing or nappies.
By choosing organically produced cotton or other eco-friendly crops
such as hemp or bamboo, you are making a positive choice to support
organic agricultural practices, as well as getting a better quality
garment ideally suited to baby's sensitive skin.
