Your little ones may eat organic, but do they wear organic?
We may not “digest” clothes the way that we do food, but do you want chemicals in your children's clothing and on their skin?
Whether you're online shopping the latest fashion trends or browsing stores for a cute t-shirt for your toddler, chances are that the clothes in your shopping cart have a greater cost than their price tag shows.
Fast Fashion Facts About Today's Clothing Industry:
The truth is brutal. The industry’s rampant use of chemicals to treat clothing results in thousands of pesticide-borne illnesses and deaths and has a devastating impact on our environment and our bodies.
That’s why we at art & eden are committed to using organic cotton, low impact dyes and ethically sourced materials in our garment creation process. We source from GOTS certified mills and factories, which means:
- An organic certifier monitors all phases of production
- We do not use dangerous chemical treatments, which means those toxic chemicals stay away from your child’s body and out of our earth
- We require the humane treatment of animals
- Our garments are made with organic materials
It’s equally important to us that you can actually buy these clothes without emptying your bank. Healthy living shouldn’t be synonymous with exclusivity. We work hard to keep our prices down so you can keep your child’s style and health up. We do all this while maintaining a minimum price tag to ensure our factories can pay their employees fair wages.
Clothes that are better for the planet AND better for the people who wear them.
