As a new parent trying to learn about what’s best for your baby when it comes to clothes, it’s pretty easy to work out quickly that organic baby clothes are best!
I’ve been having a look at YouTube to find the best videos for new parents. Hopefully you can have a look and see why sustainable clothing is better for everyone. From FairTrade baby clothes to bamboo babygrows and other organic cotton kids clothes, there’s information about all things organic on YouTube.
I particularly like the video telling you five fab facts about organic cotton. There’s something about hearing the words being spoken which helps the information to stick in your brain more readily.
The Sustainable Cotton Movement have many great videos and the one explaining why organic cotton matters, is an interesting watch too.
Eco friendly fashion for children is very much on the rise for all sorts of reasons. The video below explains why and is also worth watching.

The images of Meghan and Prince Harry getting in to their blue Aston Martin with her wearing her new Stella McCartney evening wedding dress is already an iconic image from the day of their historic wedding.
Cheap fashion is having a massive negative impact on our planet and we all need to work together to try and combat this. When you become a parent for the first time, is as good a time as any to start thinking about sustainable clothing. Start small by buying organic cotton baby clothes from an ethical retailer like Tilly & Jasper or the many other online organic baby clothes sites.
Think twice about buying cheap and cheerful ‘disposable’ clothes and consider how the companies sell such cheap clothes.
