    is organic cotton better for your babyThe Benefits of Organic Cotton Baby Clothes.

    "Clothing your little ones in cotton may seem like the natural choice but are you surprised to hear that it isn_t necessarily the safest one?"

    Certified organic cotton is very much a different story. It_s by far the safest option, second only to donning a birthday suit! There are so many benefits to clothing our children in organic cotton and some are more widely known than others, so let_s take a peek at them.

    The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the name of the governing body that oversees the certification criteria of organic cotton right around the world. Certification is critical in ensuring companies comply with the criteria necessary to have their products classified as truly organic. When purchasing Australian organic clothing, it_s important that you ensure products are GOTS certified because unfortunately any company can lay false and misleading claims to an organic product otherwise.

    Certified farmers understand that healthy cotton promotes healthy living. They start with a clean slate, ridding their farms of all harmful substances before they start growing organic crops. Farms must be free from pesticides for three years before farming of organic cotton can commence. From the moment the seeds are sewn into the soil, right through to the finished product on the shop floor (or internet website in our case!) every process is a natural one. Organic cotton is the natural choice, when only the best will do.

    Certified Organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers whereas conventional cotton-growing techniques rely heavily on these nasties to control the quality of the soil. Ordinarily cotton is processed using dyes, bleach and a host of other unhealthy chemicals that have been attributed to allergies, eczema and even cancer. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is free from all artificial additives as well as free from formaldehyde which has been classified as a cancer-causing agent by the International Institute for Research on Cancer.

    Did you know that globally cotton covers 2.5% of the world_s cultivated land, yet it uses 16%-25% of the world_s insecticides, more than any other single major crop? And five of the top nine pesticides used on conventional cotton in the US alone, are known to be cancer causing chemicals? These are just a couple of the many statistics that are now widely available to demonstrate the harmful effects of conventional cotton.
