The materials in clothing and toys matter! Most fabric (and toys) are not eco-friendly and have a negative impact on the Earth as well as affect your little one by exposing them to toxins. You can avoid harmful fabrics by using organic cotton! Organic cotton doesn’t use pesticides which is good for your little one, bees, and maintaining healthy soil for future growing!
While cotton is a natural fiber that can biodegrade at the end of its life, it is also one of the most environmentally demanding crops there is. The cotton industry now uses 25 percent of the world’s insecticides and 10 percent of the world’s pesticides.https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/eco-friendly-fabric-ranking
