When it comes to your baby, moms and mothers to be always strive for the best. They want to take every precaution to make sure that their baby is healthy, happy, and safe. Recently, there has been much debate and discussion regarding the use of organic products vs. conventional products. The most common organic products that come to mind are generally food and formula. Often times, people disregard other organic products, like organic cotton.
Like organic food, organic cotton is grown without the use of harmful chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, etc. Since the lungs and digestive systems continue to develop right after birth, organic crib sheets can help to create a chemical-free environment for your developing baby. Organic crib sheets are also beneficial for babies with sensitive skin, as they contain fewer additives. Many babies with sensitive skin may have reactions to the dyes or chemicals from conventional cotton.
In addition to helping your developing baby, purchasing organic cotton also helps to promote more sustainable farming. Conventional farming, no matter what type of crop, takes a huge toll on our planet. Conventional cotton takes up a very small part (about 3%) of the world’s farmland but actually uses about 25% of pesticides and fertilizers of the world. Growing conventional cotton has an enormous environmental impact and in the United States, cotton is the number one pesticide-laden crop in the world. These massive amounts of pesticides don’t just make their way onto cotton crops but consequently end up in some of our drinking water as well.
People may not realize how much they may actually ingest and come into contact with pesticide-ridden cotton. Cottonseed oil is a commonly used in all sorts of snacks, baked goods, and salad dressings.
By supporting organic cotton agriculture, we can help support organic farmers. If more people start to buy organic cotton, conventional farmers might be more likely to adopt organic farming practices. Consumers could help cultivate an environment more tolerable for organic farmers which means less pesticides circulating in the air and less running into the water supply.
Even though it is cheaper to manufacture and purchase conventional cotton, organic cotton is much better for the land, farmers and everyone’s well-being. An infant or young child is fragile and what better way to help them grow than to provide them with a chemical-free environment. Organic crib sheets are a bit more expensive but when thinking about your baby and the environment as a whole, the few extra dollars may be worth it.
