5 ways to Green Your Baby clothes
Whether for bedtime, playtime, or anytime in between, baby clothes made from eco-friendly fabrics that are not treated with harsh chemicals protect baby's sensitive skin and the earth. And, when your little one's outgrown that romper that was only worn once-recycle it, give it away or re-sell it to avoid landfill waste and the need to use virgin materials.
Organic cotton baby clothes are widely available and are a great alternative to materials that have been treated with pesticides and other chemicals.
Even organic and natural fiber baby clothes may be dyed or treated with dangerous chemicals. Choose clothes that are dye- and chemical treatment-free to go one step further in protecting your baby.
Bamboo, hemp, and soy are sustainable alternatives to cotton and synthetic baby clothes, and keep dangerous pesticides out of the environment and away from baby's delicate skin.
Secondhand baby clothes can save you money and help protect the environment from the destructive processes required to manufacture and transport new clothes.
Protect baby's sensitive skin and the environment by washing those little layettes without chlorine, phosphates, or petroleum-based chemicals.
