More and more new parents are opting for organic. Today’s generation of new mums and dads are more aware of the environmental consequences of using items such as disposable nappies and are choosing to use organic materials that are not only better for the environment but also help to reduce allergies in their little ones.
Zoe Bonser, Show Director for The Baby Show says: “Parents today are so much more eco-savvy than they used to be; conscious that using organic products are not only better for the world around them but their world inside the home".
Having a baby dramatically changes your perception of the world and your priorities shift. In a world where climate change needs action, parents are looking at how the products they use make a difference. Zoe goes on to say that "teaching your child to use organic products from the very start will only have a beneficial impact on them and the world they live in which they will be responsible for looking after in years to come.”
As we celebrate Organic month this September, The Baby Show, with MadeForMums, has compiled a list of the top organic products that will be on sale at next month’s show, held at Olympia London from Friday 18th until Sunday 20th October.
NEW to The Baby Show – Pattie & Co.
Founded by London-based mum who was frustrated by the lack of ‘grown-up’ designs available in good quality organic muslin, she decided to create her own. All muslins are made from soft, GOTS certified organic cotton, and designs are printed using digital reactive printing. This gives superior wash and rub fastness, along with brighter colours and a softer feel to the skin. These inks avoid the hazards associated with pigments contained in conventional process dyes.
You'll find them at stand number F107 during the Olympia show next month.
Newbie is a Swedish lifestyle brand for the little ones we love and have mentioned before over on our Instagram. Its collection uses organic cotton and is a sustainable and affordable fashion brand for babies and kids, offering a wide range of clothing and accessories.
