This is what I don't understand: if organic foods, clothing items, skin care products, etc. are really healthier for our bodies, our children, and our communities, then those products should be the norm, not the exception. For example, I shouldn't have to go to a little designated "organic" corner of the grocery store or to a specialty food market to buy an organic apple. All apples should just be that way. An "organic" label shouldn't be necessary.
That said, I know there is much work and research still to be done in this area so we must begin with small steps. And one small step is to purchase "organic" products because - as we know - consumer demand is extremely powerful in determining future supply.
Today, I am pleased to feature Go Natural Baby™, a new company that designs and manufactures the Zah Collection™, a certified organic baby and children's clothing line. The Zah Collection™ "uses only 100% certified organic cotton, low impact dyes, heavy metal free zippers and snaps, and fair trade practices."
Since organic clothing is still a relatively new term, you might be wondering: "What exactly do they mean by organic cotton?"
Here's the answer (directly from the Go Natural Baby™ website): "We mean that we grow our cotton from seed without using toxic pesticides or insecticides. From the beginning to the end the way the cotton is grown and handled is governed by SKAL International. In addition, our factory only produces organic cotton, thus there are no harsh chemicals used around the clothing or in the factory."
Go Natural Baby™ offers organic cotton clothes for newborns to size four and is available online only.
I'm curious: did you/do you/will you buy organic clothing for your baby? Why or why not?
