Whenever we head to a store and pick out a piece of clothing, we face two options. Do we buy synthetic fibres, or do we buy sustainable natural fibres? Now, you're probably sitting there thinking that you have never thought about that before in your life. But our point is, you should be.
So many people pick up clothing without thinking about where it comes from. Well, now we're living in a world where our impact on the environment is better understood than ever before, so now we're inviting you to join us in thinking about what clothing we're buying for ourselves and our Little Ones. And to steer you in the right direction, we have a few pointers that will help you shop in a way that's better for your children, and our planet!
Why Organic Cotton Is Better For The Planet
Organic cotton is much better for the planet than regular cotton. It uses less water, emits less carbon dioxide, and protects the environment from water pollution, soil pollution, and the unnatural deaths of animals and plants through harmful chemicals.
That's a lot to take in, we know. But trust us, that's how important organic cotton is in protecting our planet. And do you want to know the absolute best thing about organic cotton? It looks, feels, and acts the same as regular cotton in most ways. It's essentially regular cotton, without all the damage to the environment. So the next time you are looking at kids clothing gifts - reach for organic cotton instead!
Why Cashmere Is Better For The Planet Compared To Synthetic Fibres
Synthetic fibres are terrible for the environment. It's in the name. Synthetic means it isn't natural, so we have to make it. Making fibres requires human resources, air miles, water, and lots and lots of pollution. Cashmere, however, is natural. It is taken from the Kashmir goats of Inner Mongolia, and the soft, fine fabric is then used to make all types clothing. It's one of the most perfect baby clothing gift ideas because of how warm, cozy, and sustainable it is! So long as we source the cashmere responsibly, then it is definitely one of the best sustainable natural fibres available alongside organic cotton.
Why Looking After The Planet Safeguards The Future For Our Little Ones
Now, you might think 'Yeah that's great, but why should I care?'. Well, looking after the planet now, even in a way as small as thinking about what fashion we're buying, can save the world. Literally. If all of us bind together in our efforts to stop pollution, protect the environment, and waste less, then we can put a stop to the environmental decline and climate change that we're facing.
If we make smart choices with the clothing we buy, then we stop the demand for harmful products such as cotton and irresponsibly sourced wool and synthetic fibres. If we make smart choices with the clothing we buy, then we can look our children in the eye and say we did our best for them and their planet. After all, surely our Little Ones and the earth which they will inherit deserve only the best!
