Why choose organic cotton?

Many of us don't realise that the cotton we wear started life in soil. Cotton is grown in the ground, the fluffy white fibre is then picked and spun into thread and then woven to make material. It is a super popular choice for clothes and that is because it is really light, breathable and easy to wear. 

What makes organic cotton so lovely?

Well, organic cotton is simply the best quality cotton you can get!

In this article we will explain what makes it so great AND why it is better for the environment. 

In conventional manufacture of cotton, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms are used. These toxins are harmful for farmers, workers, us as consumers, and entire wildlife eco-systems. These harsh chemicals used in their production also hugely compromise the quality, feel and durability of the end product.

 

Organic cotton is grown in a way that uses methods and materials that lessen the impact on our environment. The GOTS certification is really important when choosing our collections and that is because to achieve the certification, the farmers have to adhere to strict guidelines which ban the use of those nasties used in conventional farming. This results in a much higher quality product compared to conventional practices because the integrity of the material isn't damaged by the chemicals.

 

 

We are living in a time now where we are much more conscious of the environment so looking after our planet is really important for not just us but for our bubbas futures. Organic clothing is so much better for the environment and is an easy change for us to make in order to do our bit to help towards a better future. 

 

Aside from the huge impact buying organic has on the environment, it is also so much kinder to our skin. If you or your bubba suffer with allergies or with sensitive skin then switching to organic cotton is a really sensible option. The dyes, cleansers, traces of pesticides and other chemicals found in non-organic materials can really irritate sensitive skin. 

Organic cotton is also known to wash up better, last longer and stay softer for longer. So what is there not to love?

All of this is basically the reason behind Bubbafino. We are committed to bringing you our favourite collections of the cutest, softest, most beautiful, organic baby clothes so you can rest assured your bubbas skin is looked after. Not only that, buying organic helps make steps towards creating a better environment and planet for their future.
