We all want the best for our kids. Every parent ensures health and happiness by the choices and options we make each day. We strive for a variety of healthy food choices for inside the body, but health extends to what we put on the body too. Not only in the products that touch the skin, but even with the clothing choices. Learning more about the benefits of organic cotton, not only to each of our children, but for the environment as well, helps both in the long run. Bamboo is considered a renewable material, and makes the softest fabrics, also perfect for baby and kids clothes. Bamboo is a fas-growing grass that self generates. It’s a material that doesn’t require fertilizer or replanting. HoneyPie Kids, Michigan’s most fashionable children’s clothing boutique, carries a number of lines featuring organic materials, both organic cotton and bamboo.
Organic cotton is different than conventional cotton because it is not processed with harsh chemicals. Conventional cottons are grown with pesticides, and processed with toxic chemicals that remain on the fibers, at times transferring and absorbing into the skin. Because organic cotton isn’t processed with harsh chemicals, it is more durable because the fibers have not been broken down. With the absence of toxic chemicals, organic cotton is better for those with sensitive skin. Babies and toddlers have the most sensitive skin, dressing them in organic cottons or sustainable bamboo clothing reduces the risk of irritated skin and eliminates another area of harsh chemical exposure.
Organic cotton is also better for the environment. Producing organic cotton uses less energy than producing conventional, non-organic cotton. Manufacturers release fewer greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and the process uses significantly less water than the non-organic process. Purchasing organic-cotton clothes for your children (and yourself!) feels like a small action, but enough small actions contribute to making a big impact.
Because organic cotton is better for the skin and better for the environment, Honey Pie Kids has a few adorable lines featuring not only fashion-forward clothes, but made from environmentally friendly materials. Angel Dear is a baby and toddler line made of natural bamboo. Their commitment to quality, value and affordability produces a large selection of the softest baby sleepers, rompers and footed pajamas. They make two-piece pajama sets for toddlers and babies. Angel Dear is a popular Honey Pie Kids brand, and we are constantly restocking patterns and sizes.
Quincy Mae is another line carried in store and online by Honey Pie Kids. Their line has a very natural, earthy look and features certified organic baby sleepers, rompers, hats, dresses, pajamas, and play sets. We love the understated, but sophisticated, look of the Quincy Mae line each season.
Kira Kids is another popular, upbeat Honey Pie Kids brand is Kira Kids. They use organic cotton in their production, and their fun patterns, and peppy attitude show up in their clothes. Their organic-cotton sweatshirts, leggings, tops and skirts are casual and everyday liveable. Kira Kids sells quickly, and we work hard to keep all the popular items and sizes in stock.
HoneyPie Kids tries to carry as many organic cotton and bamboo kid’s clothing lines as we can. We believe in offering the highest quality clothes for the littlest and most fashionable, and carrying fabrics that are good for kids and good for the environment is what we’re all about. Shop often and regularly for the newest items and sizes.
