We come in contact with items made from cotton every day. The clothes you wear, the sheets you sleep on, the diapers you put on your baby and even some of the food you eat, have been made with cotton. Organic materials do not contain artificial materials like the harmful dyes, heavy metals and pesticides which can be harmful for the baby especially if baby have allergies to these.
By the usage of artificial materials the baby can develop rashes or any skin disease unwontedly. So do avoid the usage of them! The organic fibres are being used by the manufacturers of baby products not just limited only to clothing but also to many accessories for baby. The best part of it is fact, that we all can afford them.
Many paediatricians recommend the organic baby clothes and products to reduce the occurrence of skin conditions in babies and young children. Regular clothing can contain artificial ingredients that can lead to skin allergies, irritations, and other skin problems. Natural ingredients are beneficial in many ways. But the most important thing is that it is very safe for your child in health ways. They are very eco-friendly.
We are the one who can make the difference by going eco way. If we start buying organic products for our babies and ourselves, then the business of artificial product manufacturers will be affected in many ways and this will save our earth.
Going organic means helping environment and healthy environment means healthy us!
Growing conventional cotton requires the use of enormous amounts of pesticides, which has a huge environmental impact and presents health risks for those working around it. The health risks of pesticide exposure include birth defects, reproductive disorders and weaker immune systems. In many countries, cotton is still hand-picked, therefore anyone working in those fields is exposed to extreme amounts of toxic chemicals. The chemicals can also affect others in the community once they have seeped into the water supply. With so many products made from cotton, we are all exposed to these chemicals at some point.
It may cost less to manufacture and buy conventional cotton, but it’s much better for the land, the farm workers and your well-being to choose organic whenever possible. About 25 percent of the world’s insecticide use and more than 10 percent of the world’s pesticide goes to cotton crops. In 2003, that amounted to about 55 million pounds of pesticides being sprayed on 12.8 million acres of cotton, according to the Organic Trade Association. Some of these chemicals are considered to be the most toxic chemicals in the world.
So the next time you go for buying baby and child products, then consider buying the organic products.
