The world is changing for the better with sustainable natural eco friendly products that are designed specifically for the younger generation.

Today’s savvy parents want to purchase eco friendly gifts that are made to benefit children who are growing up in a more environmentally conscious society.

People are finally realising how important it is for them to use renewable resources for consumer goods. The future depends on decisions that are made today, so the children of tomorrow will have an opportunity to live a healthy life. The clothing materials list is healthy for infants to wear and includes natural fabrics such as organic cotton, bamboo, hemp, soy, and wool.

Organic cotton

Organic cotton is grown without chemicals and manufactured with only natural dyes. Remember, that all cotton is not the same. Organic cotton is carcinogen free and is safe to use when making baby infant clothing. The natural softness of this fabric makes it the perfect choice for baby blankets, towels, and many other types of clothing items, which is why mums choose it.

Bamboo

Bamboo is a very renewable resource that is hardy and easy to grow. It does not require the use of any toxic insecticides during the growing process. In fact, bamboo plants actually improve the nutrients in the soil as they mature. Bamboo baby clothes are well known by mums for its natural anti-bacterial properties. Bamboo material is also very breathable and is biodegradable, serving both humans and the environment around them. It is extremely soft, making it the perfect material for infant garments.

Hemp

Industrial Hemp has really come into its own as one of the leading sustainable fabrics within the clothing industry. Hemp plants do not deplete the natural nutrients from the soil, which allow farmers to continue to grow it without any chemical additives. Hemp fabric is very durable, making it a great choice for children’s clothing.

Soy

Today’s soy is not just a food source. In fact, the hulls of soybeans are used to make eco friendly fabrics. Before parents purchase any soy clothing item, make sure that it is certified as organic. Soy fabric is lightweight, soft, and has antibacterial properties, making it the go to material for underwear. An entire child’s wardrobe can be designed out of soy fabrics.

Wool

Organic wool is a natural fabric that definitely qualifies as a renewable resource. The organic title ensures that the sheep are treated humanely and have not been exposed to any chemicals. Good quality wool clothing sold in the fabric store is soft, breathable, and keeps babies from overheating in both the winter and summer, which mums love. It has historically been a fabric that was used for both adults and children’s clothing throughout time, but the modern use of wool has surpassed all expectations.

  • Don’t like using bamboo for all these things – if it is so prolific why are pandas finding it hard to get it to eat?

  • I would use organic cotton. If you use bamboo and it is biodegradable how durable is it andhoe long before it starts to degrade. I doubt it will be durable if it is dried out in the fresh air in the sun. It may not be suitable to dry in an electric clothes dryer in wet weather either. Some babies – and adults are allergic to wool.
