Why you should choose organic cotton for your baby.

This is why we choose organic cotton for our baby clothes

Did you know that thousands of chemicals are used to turn raw materials into textiles? Approximately 15-25% of the worlds pesticides are used to grow non-organic cotton. When you buy organic cotton, you are choosing a fiber that is free from pesticides, herbicides, formaldehyde, acetone, heavy metals and so much more.

Our skin is the largest organ in our body and it's also the primary organ for absorption. Choosing organic clothes for your children can help reduce the amount of toxins and chemicals that their skin absorbs. If you choose organic clothing you know you are choosing a safer, more eco conscious product.

We choose to have Buck & Baa garments made with the purest organic cotton. Purely because it is a ethically and environmentally positive choice.

Our cotton comes from GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) approved farms in India. GOTS is an independent body who aims to uphold the gold class of organic textiles production through ‘the development, implementation, verification, protection and promotion of the Global Organic Textiles Standard.’ (1) http://www.global-standard.org/about-us.html

In a world of abundance in choice, we need entities we can trust. GOTS helps us identify brands and organisations who are following a high standard in principle and practice. 

In many countries, New Zealand included, the labelling of a product as ‘Organic’ is not regulated, and this word can sometimes be used in misleading ways. This is why we need to look to stricter, more integrity-focused global standards.

At Buck and Baa: we choose to only use GOTS organic cotton

"We need to nurture the places that we love, but we also need to spread our love to other countries and cultures. Making ethical choices in the fashion industry is a stepping stone to making sure that those who make our clothing are treated with the same respect and humanity that we are".

- Alexa Whitehead: Creative Director and owner of Buck and Baa
