Organic Maternity Clothing 

🌎 Synthetic clothes made of polyester, nylon, acrylic, spandex, rayon, or polyamide.

These clothing release 9MILLION plastic microfibers into the ocean every time we wash them. They make up 35% of the primary microplastics found in the oceans!

We can choose organic and natural fiber such as GOTS Certified Cotton.

Here is my favorite brand!

There are few powerful individuals that take advantage of something that is shared with the rest of humanity for their own interest and that is the planet! 

 

Cotton is considered the world's dirtiest crop due to its heavy use of pesticides. Conventional cotton requires farmers to purchase seeds every year from AG chemical companies like Monsanto.

Roundup Ready Cotton (RR Cotton), has been genetically modified to survive the herbicide weapon called glyphosate Roundup, invented by Monsanto. Resulting in predictable consequences of stronger weed resistance to glyphosate, which in turn led to an increase in pesticide use. The glyphosate rate of application per crop year has tripled on cotton farms. 

 

We can either wait for the institutions to act to protect us or we can take action now with our wallets to change the system. 

We can start now to protect our health and the health of the planet by not feeding the wallet of these toxic and extremely wealthy companies.

 

While there are those who keep intoxicating us and the polluting world, it is up to us to not feed this unsustainable system.

How?

Here is what you can do:

 

❌ Conventional Cotton: Avoid conventional cotton of any kind. Any cotton brand without the Organic Certification seal is considered conventional = toxic.

 

❌ Greenwashing Cotton: Even if they claim “organic” or “natural”  cotton, if they don't display the GOTS certified seal, they may have something to hide.

 

✅ Safer Cotton:  GOTS Certified Organic Cotton. 

GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria.

Get familiar with the logo, spot it on  👗clothing, bed sheets, kitchen towels, 🧖‍♀️bath towels, linen, 🧦socks, robes, pajamas,

👩‍🍼baby clothes, and more.

 

The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was created to set criteria for how fibers and textiles must be ginned, knitted, woven, dyed, manufactured, and labeled. 

🍃By choosing only GOTS certified organic, we are sending a clear message to the toxic and greenwashing cotton companies: their marketing strategies are not working with us. By not supporting their brands, we are reshaping the market for better and more responsible products. 🌎

I am determined to support only companies that care about us and the planet.
