organic baby clothes make the perfect organic baby gifts

Organic Baby ClothesIn this day and age, we hear a lot about organic foods and how important they are, especially for children.  By avoiding pesticides and less-than-pure ingredients, you do your kids and their health a huge favor. By the same token, organic baby clothes and organic baby gifts are important for the comfort and well being of your newest addition—or those of your friends and family.  But what does it mean when the “organic” label is applied to clothing and gifts? 

As with food crops, organic cotton is grown using materials and techniques that do not utilize toxic pesticides or artificial fertilizers; these practices are gentler on the environment and on customers who come in contact with the finished product. 

This chart shows you some important (and eye-opening!) differences between organic and conventional cotton production.*





Natural, Untreated GMO free seeds

Typically treated with fungicides or insecticides. Possible GMOs.




Healthy soil through crop rotation. Retains moisture in soil from increased organic matter.

Synthetic fertilizers, loss of soil due to mono-crop culture, intensive irrigation.



Healthy soil creates natural balance. Beneficial insects and trap crops used.

Aerial spraying of insecticides and pesticides. Nine of the most commonly used pesticides are known cancer-causing agents.


Natural defoliation from freezing temperatures or through the use of water management.

Defoliation induced with toxic chemicals.


Safe peroxide is used.

Chlorine bleaching creates toxic by-products which are released into the environment.


Low-impact fiber-reactive or natural dyes with low metals and sulfur content.

High temperature containing metals and sulfur.


Low-impact, water based inks and/or pigments with no heavy metals.

Pigments may be petroleum based and contain heavy metals. Run-off spills into waterways, polluting streams.


Social criteria in place to ensure safe, healthy, non-abusive, nondiscriminatory environment with living wages.

No social screening. Possible child or forced labor used. Facilities may be unsafe and unhealthy.
