You’ve got your beautiful little bundle and you’re ready to dress them in adorable clothes, but have you thought about what you’re dressing them in? Cotton is the most common fabric in baby clothes. It’s breathable, it’s washable and—unfortunately—it’s filled with pesticides. 
Accounting for nearly 16% of all the insecticides and 6.8% of all herbicides used worldwide, conventionally grown cotton is considered the world’s dirtiest crop. When you think of all the chemicals cotton can be laced with, it doesn’t seem like the best thing to dress an infant in. Thankfully, conventionally grown cotton isn’t the only choice. GOTS certified organic cotton is pesticide-free and more sustainably grown overall.
