Eco-Friendly Baby Clothing Tips

Shop Local

Shopping local is a great eco-friendly clothing option for your baby! Shopping local leads to less needed transportation, less habitat loss, and less pollution. Some great ways to shop local would be to check out your local farmers markets!

You can read more about shopping local and it's impacts here.

Choose Small Shop Over Big Box Stores

Everyone knows that shopping small is a great choice because you're supporting a person just like you instead of a big corporation, but it is also a great choice for the environment for reasons listed above when it comes to shopping more local. Etsy is a great choice when it comes to shopping small but there are tons of different small clothing shops for babies out there (you're checking out our shop right now!).

Stick With Organic Cotton Options

Not only is organic cotton safer for your babies skin, but it is a great choice when it comes to environmental impact.

You see, organic cotton farming is much more sustainable and uses less energy and water than traditional cotton farming.

Choose Clothing That You Can Pass On to Future Kids

Another great one of my eco-friendly baby clothing tips is to shop with the intent of passing on. Gender neutral styles are a great idea when it comes to being eco-conscious baby clothing wise. This way not only does the clothing look adorable now, but it will look equally adorable on any future kids/kids you can pass them on to.

We have quite a few gender neutral timeless pieces in our shop that you can check out here.

Buy Multi-Function Clothing

My last eco-friendly baby clothing tip; buy clothing that has a variety of uses.

Sure, the extravagant dress will look adorable for pictures, but dresses that can fit more than one occasion would be a much more eco-conscious decision.

A great option when it comes to this is building a capsule wardrobe for your baby.
