Organic Fashion For Toddlers & Kids

Cotton is one of the dirtiest crops in the world, yet it’s also one of the most widely available fabrics for children’s apparel. But it’s not the only option. Free of harsh chemicals, waxes, and formaldehyde, organic cotton is softer and gentler on sensitive skin—which is ideal for toddlers and children. It requires fewer resources to produce and decomposes naturally in less time than its conventional counterparts. Here are eight of our favorite apparel brands boasting clean cotton for the littlest members of your family:
