As Earth Day approaches we remember the importance of choosing organic vs conventional cotton products or other falsely touted eco-friendly fabrics such as viscose from bamboo (aka rayon). It is unfortunate that green-washing still persists among clothing manufacturers marketing, making purchasing choices confusing and difficult for parents. At the end of the day, we all want to support businesses that will protect the future of our planet and the environment our children will inherit.
Here is a clear cut chart of some of the environmental advantages of organic cotton clothing over conventional cotton (one of the dirtiest crops on the planet).
When you choose organic cotton you are encouraging farmers to grow organic. Start to finish, organic cotton is the better choice for our planet and our bodies, which is why it is our choice.
As always, thank you for supporting sustainable and us at New Jammies!
