Why buy organic cotton garments for babies?

Having a toddler and a new baby, and my twin sister's son currently suffering from eczema. We have seen at first hand the many benefits for buying organic cotton clothing.

Simply, organic cotton is an ideal choice for babies delicate skin:
* As cotton is grown using NO chemical pesticides, insecticides or dyes (a babies skin can absorb chemicals 5 times more easily than an adults skin – which can irritate their skin)
* Organic cotton is thicker, stronger and much softer than conventional cotton

Organic cotton is also grown using sustainable growing practices so that the impact on the environment is reduced, these are:
* Untreated seeds are used (no chemicals or genetic modification)
* Natural fertilizers are used
* Crops are rotated
* Defoliation is left up to nature's freezing rather than a chemical application
* Beneficial insects are introduced to cut the population of bad ones so a natural balance is maintained
* The soil retains nutrients and the water and air stay clean for future generations

With these practices in place the farmers and manufacturers of organic cotton have better working conditions, a decent wage and as no chemicals are used they are not damaging their health.

Finally, Organic Cotton is also a biodegradable and renewable resource.
