As a parent, it can be so difficult to navigate the world of baby products and services. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to know which materials are truly safe and healthy for your little one. At Botanical Baby, we wanted to make good quality, environmentally thoughtful products that you don't have to question. This is where the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has been a perfect match for Botanical Baby products.
GOTS is the leading worldwide standard for organic textiles, covering everything from the harvesting of raw materials to the final product's labeling. When you choose clothing made with GOTS certified materials, you can trust that they meet strict environmental and social criteria and are free from harmful chemicals.
Here are just a few reasons why GOTS certified materials are better for your baby's clothing:
Safety: GOTS certified materials are free from harmful substances such as heavy metals, pesticides, and formaldehyde. These chemicals can be absorbed through your baby's delicate skin, potentially causing health problems like skin irritation and allergies.
Comfort: Organic cotton, which is a common GOTS certified material, is softer and more breathable than conventional cotton. This makes it perfect for baby's sensitive skin, especially during hot summer months.
Environmental Responsibility: GOTS certified materials are produced using environmentally friendly practices, including reduced water and energy use, organic farming methods, and safe waste management. This means that the clothes your baby wears don't harm the planet, ensuring a sustainable future for them and future generations.
Social Responsibility: GOTS certified materials are also produced using fair labor practices, ensuring that the workers who produce them are treated fairly and paid a living wage. This ethical aspect of GOTS certification means that you can feel good about the clothes you buy for your baby, knowing that they were made with respect for human dignity.
In conclusion, choosing GOTS certified materials for your baby is an easy and effective way to prioritise safety, comfort, and sustainability. By doing so, you can feel good about the clothes your little one wears while also contributing to a healthier planet.
Botanical Baby uses GOTS certified materials in our Swaddle Blankets and our new Organic Growsuits so you can shop with confidence for your little one.
