Kids grow out of (or destroy) their clothes quickly, which makes it hard to reduce the amount of clothing waste your family produces. All is not lost, though, because you can still minimize your impact by purchasing clothes from sustainable children’s clothing brands that prioritize conserving the environment and reducing waste. There are a lot of them out there, too, it’s just that they can be somewhat hard to find.
Clothing companies strive to be more sustainable in a variety of ways, which is why it can sometimes be confusing to figure out which brands are actually prioritizing sustainability and which ones are, well, not exactly practicing what they preach. Brands that are truly focused on sustainability use textiles made from recycled fabrics, organic cotton, and bamboo, are mindful about their shipping methods and materials, and partner with manufacturing companies that are also committed to saving the environment. Additionally, many eco-friendly clothing brands also put an emphasis on fair trade which means working with facilities that provide safe working conditions and livable wages for their employees.
Basically, sustainable clothing brands understand how their industry affects the environment and they are making a targeted effort to help minimize it. Here are some sustainable kids’ clothing brands to help get your shopping started.
