Conventional cotton is grown using 456 pounds of pesticides each year and 7 of these are said to be carcinogenic. That's not all, cotton is then processed using bleaches, dies and very possibly a Formaldehyde finish. If you're not familiar with Formaldehyde, I can assure this is not something you want near your skin. Some manufacturers may use retardant chemicals for fire resistance. Shocking I know. Children and babies are the most vulnerable to these unhealthy chemicals.
Organically grown is a company that is committed to a green environment. They sell organic apparel and home decor at affordable prices. Their cotton is free from the harmful contaminants listed above.
I love looking through their selection of babies clothing. Here are some of my faves from the Winter Collection:
|Organic Cotton Girls "Cute & Fuzzy Penguin" 3 Piece Set |
|Organic Cotton Boys "Let's Go Sledding" 2 Piece Set with Bib |
You can purchase these adorable pieces and other Organically Grown items on their website.
