FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do we choose organic cotton?

1. Organic cotton is free from impurities.
Organic cotton feels softer because it is free of scratchy impurities and harsh chemicals, which could irritate your baby’s skin. In many cases it is also more durable because the fibers are not broken down with harsh chemicals.

2. Organic cotton reduces allergic reactions + rashes.
When conventional cotton leaves the field, traces of many of the pesticides used to grow it remain in the fibers themselves. These chemicals could be absorbed through your baby’s thin skin and can cause allergies, rashes, respiratory problems and can even lead to cancers.

3. Organic cotton protects from cancer causing agents.
Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the United States. Many government-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. In the long run, choosing organic cotton is safer.

4. Organic cotton does not use GMOs (genetically modified organisms).
Research links GMOs to allergies, organ toxicity, and other health issues. The U.S Food & Drug administration does not require safety testing or labeling for GMOs.

5. Organic cotton is better for our future.
When we choose organic cotton instead of conventional cotton, we protect the health of our families and the environment.

 

6. It saves you money
Organic clothing may be more expensive when you first buy it, but when compared to the cheaper cotton product it gives you your money’s worth. Conventionally produced cotton material lasts 10-20 washes before it starts to break down. An organic cotton material lasts for 100 washes or more before it begins to wear down. This is because the cotton fibers in conventionally produced cotton take so much abuse in production because it goes through scouring, bleaching, dying, softeners, formaldehyde spray, and flame and soil retardants before it is even shipped to be cut for patterns.
