💚 These organic stuffed animals are made with the most eco-friendly material, GOTS Certified organic cotton, safer for us and for the environment:
✅ Organic Cotton
Organic cotton comes from natural, non-GMO seeds and is grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides, or herbicides. As a result, organic cotton products are safer for the skin. GMO cotton contains toxins that harm farmers, workers, consumers, and entire wildlife ecosystems. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers can grow more than one crop, which supplements their food and income.
🌿Organic PLA fiber
Organic PLA fiber is an eco-friendly alternative to other synthetic types of fibers. It is produced from renewable plant resources, such as corn or potatoes. All PLA fibers used to create the bears are also certified organic, meaning the corn used to produce these fibers is GMO-free.
PLA fibers require much less fossil fuel energy and resources to produce. They also are readily biodegradable, making their lasting impact on the Earth much smaller than similar synthetic fibers. PLA fibers are hypoallergenic and won’t cause irritation like some natural fibers such as wool.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the stringent voluntary international standard for the processing of organic fiber-containing products, addressing all the post-harvest processing stages (including spinning, knitting, weaving, dyeing, and manufacturing). It includes both environmental and social provisions for post-farm to retail shelf management. Key provisions include a ban on the use of child labor, genetic engineering, heavy metals, and highly hazardous chemicals such as formaldehyde, while requiring living wages and strict wastewater treatment practices.
Why Organic Stuffed Animals for Children
Organic cotton is safe and super soft, making it the perfect material for children’s clothing and toys. It is hypoallergenic and also has antimicrobial properties. Because it is organic, no harsh chemicals are used to grow, harvest, or process the cotton.
They have worked hard to ensure that all components of their bears, (material, stuffing, and dyes,) are as safe as possible for all children. All materials used are organic and non-toxic. They also do not use bead eyes, instead, plushie’s eyes are stitched on. Plush animals are guaranteed safe for ages 0 and up!
