Why Organic Cotton? 🌿
We at SnugBags only use GOTS certified Organic Cotton for our sleeping bags - which is the gold standard for Organic fabrics 🌸
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
By only allowing certified organic fibers to qualify for GOTS certification, GOTS promotes organic and biodynamic farming and avoids GMOs, toxic pesticides and fertilizers 🌱
Why is this important?
A large part of what children absorb in their body happens through the skin (the rest is food, liquid and air — gastrointestinal and respiratory absorption). Our skin is our largest organ. It protects us, helps regulate our body temperature, and plays many other essential functions. It also absorbs a lot of what we put on it.
A baby's skin is up to 5 times thinner than adult skin, they have higher metabolisms and lower weight making them extremely susceptible to absorbing toxins and more sensitive to chemicals.
Since Organic cotton is grown naturally and sustainable, without herbicides, pesticides or any other harmful chemicals. Choosing organic means limiting your baby’s exposure to potentially harmful chemicals found in non-organic garments.
And not only that, Organic Cotton is know to be much softer and more comfortable to wear and it has shown to be much stronger and last longer than conventional cotton too!
