Living in a plastic, disposable world, it's easy to lose sight of why we obsess over finding the very best children's products made with natural materials. And why should you care? Does it make a difference in the world?

We believe that choosing products made from natural materials does make a difference, both locally and abroad. To illustrate our point, here's our top 7 reasons to choose natural materials when choosing products for your family.

1. Safety: 

Products made from natural materials such as organic cotton, wool, or bamboo, are free from harmful chemicals and toxins commonly found in synthetic materials. Natural materials are gentle on a child's delicate skin, reducing the risk of allergic reactions, irritation, and other health problems.

2. Environmental Sustainability:

Natural materials are biodegradable, renewable, and eco-friendly. Products made from natural materials are less likely to end up in landfills and contribute to environmental pollution. Choosing natural products helps reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing and processing, contributing to a more sustainable future for our planet.

3. Durability: 

Natural materials are often more durable than synthetic materials, making them a smart investment for parents. Clothes and toys made from natural materials can withstand frequent washing and rough play, ensuring they last longer and are less likely to need replacement.

4. Comfort: 

Natural materials such as cotton, wool, and bamboo are soft, breathable, and comfortable, providing a cozy and comfortable experience for children. These materials allow for air circulation, which helps regulate body temperature and prevent overheating, making them an ideal choice for all seasons.

5. Support for Local Economies:

Purchasing products made from natural materials can support small businesses and local economies. Many natural materials, such as organic cotton and wool, are sourced from small farms and businesses, providing employment and supporting local communities. By choosing natural products, you can help create a more sustainable and equitable global economy.
