Sustainable Ethical Kids Clothes 2023*

Baby in Romper with Hat

When you ask people what tured them onto sustainable living the answer very often has to do with becoming a parent. There’s something so primeval about wanting to protecting our children from all the world’s ills and nowadays the impending threat of the planet’s demise unfortunately must be counted as one of them.  Therefore it’s not surprising to see how buoyant the organic cotton children’s clothing sector is, both at home and abroad.

Nothing mentioned in this article has been sponsored. It’s all just my own personal opinion. If you like your sources to remain independent then please;

Before I launch into listing all of the brands involved, lets pause for a moment; do you really need to buy new? Charity shops are bursting with good-quality pre-loved garments for children at a fraction of their original cost. There are also more and more resale options including;

And if you need a suit for a communion or wedding you can hire one from most dress suit hire shops.

For the moment my budget doesn’t allow me to limit our clothing to toxin-free organic garments and so the next most sustainable option for us is to wear second-hand clothing as much as possible. When my kids were younger we were lucky to benefit from hand-me-downs from other families, which I would top up their wardrobes with items from local charity shops as I found them.

It was a total godsend, saving us a fortune and lots of shopping time.  Not only is this a planet positive choice, it’s also the least expensive way to cloth my children.  When I was doing this approximately 70% – 80% of my kids wardrobes are made up of pre-loved garments. I appreciate that some parents can be iffy about buying second-hand clothes for their children, but let me allay some of your fears.

If it’s hygiene then you could put a garment in the freezer overnight to kill any nasties, although I’ve been buying second-hand clothes for years now and never had a problem.

If it’s the hassle factor then I suggest limiting yourself to just one shop a week. Trust me as soon as you nab you’re first bargain you’ll be hooked. Or buy from one of the resale companies listed above.

If it’s the shame factor of buying second-hand then I let you in on a little secret. Everyone’s doing it! And why wouldn’t then? You get clothes in excellent condition for pennies, which allows you to spend your hard-earned cash on more enjoyable things.

If you can’t find what you need second hand then here is a list of sustainable ethical kids clothing brands to help you shop new items as sustainably as possible.

What to Look For
Although not all kids clothing under the ethical banner is made from natural fibre, it is a very high percentage. You’ll find that the vas majority of brands listed here have organic cotton as their fibre of choice, but not all organic cotton is the same.  If you’re going to spend the extra money for a premium product you need to ask a few questions to make sure it’s worth it.

  • Is the fibre independently certified as being organically grown? It’s very easy to just label something as organic, I would only trust something certified by an independent organisation like The Soil Association or GOTS.
  • Is just the fibre certified or the entire supply chain certified as organic? With the former just the fabric is certified as organic, with the latter every step along the journey of the fibre becoming a garment has been certified as organic. Obviously the latter is better, but will inevitable cost more.
  • Is the garment made with 100% organic fibre or just blended with it? Remember blended fabrics aren’t currently recyclable as is the case with H&M’s organic range.
  • Has the fibre been processed without the use of toxic chemicals and certified as such, i.e. Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified?
  • Has the factory that made the garment a fair and ethical certificate. Certificates in this area include FairwearFairtrade USA or FloCert on behalf of Fairtrade International or they may have gained SA8000 certification for having achieved socially acceptable practices in the workplace. Fair Wear is the only organisation that states it’s a non-profit. As part of my research I learned about a split between Fairtrade USA and FairTrade International, with claims that Fairtrade USA were setting their standards to low.
  • Where is the factory located? You may instinctively think that a European based factory is more sustainable but it may be more sustainable to have a garment made in the same country as the fibre is produced in, as this will save on packing materials and possibly transport emissions. I wouldn’t get too hung up on trying to work out which is more sustainable, just wanted to alert you to the fact that it’s not always obvious.
