Many people do not realize that conventional cotton has been subjected to pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fertilizers or other chemicals. And according to treehugger.com, "Conventional cotton is one of the most chemically-dependent crops, sucking up 10% of all agricultural chemicals and 25% of insecticides on 3% of our arable land; that's more than any other crop per unit. That adds up to 1/3 of a pound of chemicals to produce enough cotton for a t-shirt, and 3/4 of a pound for a pair of jeans. And that's just not bad for the planet; 20,000 deaths occur each year from pesticide poisoning in developing countries, many of these from cotton farming, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)."

In addition, organic cotton is simply better for your child's skin. People with sensitive skin and allergies oftentimes wear solely organic cotton, but this fabric is not only for them. Babies™ skin is thinner and more porous than that of adults, so they are more at risk for absorbing chemicals. Organic cotton is pure cotton that is natural and allows you to feel healthier. Clothes made of organic cloth may cost more than those made of conventional cotton, but organic products last much longer. Wearing something you know is comfortable, safe, good for the skin and environmentally friendly makes you feel like you can do something to make a difference.
