If you’re feeling the itch to shop for cute Valentine’s Day outfits for your baby or kid, you’re not alone. Last year, U.S. Valentine's Day-related e-commerce shopping for fashion and apparel grew 8% over the year before, according to Statista. No doubt demand has only grown.
As we kick off 2024 and wade further into the ongoing climate crisis, it’s important to remember that adopting more sustainable fashion practices is as much a priority for consumer shoppers as it is the apparel industry.
That means when you’re shopping for baby and kid clothes, you can be kinder to the planet we will leave behind for our children by seeking out clothes made of either recycled fabrics or biodegradable organic (cotton, hemp, linen, and lyocell) materials.
Organic cotton is the gold standard not only for its planet-friendly practices but also its hypoallergenic, eczema friendly, and super soft fabric for delicate baby and toddler skin. Try to avoid synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon that are prone to shedding thousands of microplastic particles for every home wash cycle (which we ultimately ingest via the food chain) and are non-biodegradable; as well as rayon, bamboo, cashmere and leather fabrics that require toxic chemical pollutant-based processes that heavily impair the environment.
To simplify your shopping experience, the moms at Young Eden have rounded up some of the best sustainable children’s fashion for Valentine’s Day 2024 for you to consider instead of fast fashion. Here are our picks for stylish, affordable and guilt-free sustainable fashion your kiddo, and the planet, will love.
