What makes a clothing brand environmentally friendly?
There are many factors that make a brand environmentally friendly & sustainable. At Aster & Oak, we design and create organic baby clothes, organic kids clothes and accessories from 100% organic, sustainable cotton. We have control over every facet of the manufacturing process; from the organic GOTS certified cotton fields to the compostable packaging used to pack and dispatch our fine quality organic baby clothes Australia wide.
Organic baby clothes are soft and natural for delicate baby skin as well as being environmentally responsible. Lets take a moment to look at the environmental benefits of organic kids clothes.
Organic Baby Clothes and Kids Clothes are Chemical Free
Organic kids clothes from Aster & Oak are made of 100% organic cotton. They are designed and created from a natural cotton material, which has been grown and certified as chemical free by GOTS, the global organic textile standard. This certification ensures that every step in the supply chain supports the environment and human rights. No pesticides or chemicals were used in the production of our cotton fabrics. This is great for kids, particularly for newborns with sensitivities to chemicals present in the fibres of their clothing and swaddling. It’s beneficial for the environment too, since no chemicals or toxins are used in production or absorbed into the soil in which the cotton is grown.
Cotton Organic Baby Clothes are Made with a Natural Fibre
The cotton in our organic baby clothes is a completely natural fibre. Natural fibres are capable of breaking down and being composted harmlessly back into the earth, leaving no toxic residue. In addition, we use environmentally friendly low impact natural dyes for our designs. We also use 100% compostable packaging and dispatch our organic baby clothes Australia wide using compostable postage satchels.
Our Small Production Runs Prevent Wastage
Organic baby clothes and organic kids clothes from Aster & Oak are created in small production batches, which reduces wastage. The quality of the materials and high construction quality make our baby rompers, onesies and playsuits durable and long-lasting. They can be passed down, kept as a keepsake, or resold. We are very careful with our seconds. If we get items with markings or small flaws, we donate them, or sometimes offer them as ‘mystery packs’ on our website at a greatly reduced price.
