As I’ve become more interested in health and sustainability, I’ve also learned that many of these clothes are made with hazardous chemicals. Babies are more vulnerable because of their sensitive skin and the fact their their bodies and brains are still developing. Yet, sustainable alternatives like organic clothing are hard to find and significantly more expensive. And because babies grow so fast, many clothes will only be used a few times, resulting in overspending, clutter, and waste. According to the EPA, 26 billion pounds of apparel and textiles end up in landfills each year in the US, and children clothing is a significant portion of that.
