There are countless reasons to feel good about eco-friendly organic cotton gifts. Not only are workers and the environment benefiting from the more natural conditions this crop is grown, but the final product is safer and softer on a baby’s delicate skin. And knowing toys and teethers—that somehow always wind up in little mouths—were produced without the nasty agrochemicals found in synthetic fertilizers and pesticides is a welcome relief.

But that’s not the only reason it’s worth going the extra step to score organic cotton finds for kids. Babies tend to need a lot of stuff, and growing out of an entire wardrobe every few months leaves a pretty large eco-footprint for such tiny feet. With traditionally sourced cotton eating up more than its fair share of the world’s insecticides, filling the dresser with fabrics that don’t pollute is good for everyone.

Luckily organic cotton has proven it’s not a trend, with boutique companies dedicated to creating and selling greener goods popping up everywhere. So consider adding these cute and conscientiousness organic cotton goodies to your shopping list.
