Looking for a different kind of baby gift? Look no farther than the latest trend: organic baby clothes. You are not only giving a wonderful, quality gift, but you are also participating in the environmental movement. Specialty baby boutiques and larger chain stores alike are offering a variety of consumer goods that are made from organic fibers. In the past, there has been criticism over the lack of color and pattern used in organic baby clothes. But times have changed. The all-natural coloring processes have offered a myriad of fabric options. Organic clothes are now offered in vibrant colors and are just as beautiful as non-organic cloth. Even specialty items like Christening gowns can be found in organic fabrics. And these fabrics have been refined. They are high quality, soft to the touch, and often offer additional advantages like being resistant to mold, mildew, and wear and tear. Next time you are looking for that different but meaningful gift, choose organic.
So what is organic clothing and why is it better than the more traditional clothing? Organic clothing is produced from crops such as cotton that has been grown without the inclusion of pesticides and other chemicals. Crops such as cotton are quite heavily dependent on pesticides to keep the insect population at bay, but there are other ways in which the insects can be combated and the result is a healthier environment.
Another way in which clothing can be produced via organic methods is in the way the soil in enriched. Artificial fertilizers are usually used by farmers but they are not particularly good for the soil if used too often. The alternative is a natural manure that has been added to the soil resulting in a more healthy soil at the end.
Using natural products that have been grown and used to create products organically provides an option that is less likely to irritate the skin of those children who are susceptible to irritations and rashes.
