My son is finally making the transition into big boy underwear! I searched for organic toddler underwear and I was surprised how difficult it was to find. Then I found Ecoland, "a small family-owned company that believes in helping our planet and our loved ones by producing the best quality organic cotton apparel."
Are you wondering what the benefits of organic cotton underwear are?
1. It Reduces Pesticide Use: Conventional cotton accounts for more than 10% of the world's pesticides and nearly 25% of the world's insecticides! Organic cotton is grown without toxic, synthetic chemical inputs. Imagine how much less toxins we would use if everyone switched to organic cotton!
2. It Helps to Protect Children: Infants and children are often more sensitive than adults to synthetic chemicals both internally and externally. Choosing organic cotton clothing may help to reduce their exposure.
3. It Protects Water Quality: Pesticide and fertilizer use on cotton has been linked to groundwater contamination, the primary source of drinking water for half of the US population.
4. It Supports a True Economy: Conventional cotton prices do not reflect the hidden costs we pay in taxes including billions of dollars in subsidies, pesticide regulation, hazardous waste disposal and overall environmental damage. Bet you never thought of this!
Ecoland carries organic cotton underclothes for the whole family. My son tried Boys organic cotton brief underwear, 2 pack. These organic toddler briefs are also available in a value 6 pack and they carry organic cotton tanks and undershirts as well. They came nicely packaged in a small 100% recycled paper box with soy based inks. They are super soft and they have a great cut. They fit my son very nicely and they wash well. The edges are all very soft and comfortable. I would definitely recommend these to others and I am curious to try their women's underwear collection now!
Ecoland did provide me with the toddler briefs in the hopes that I would share my honest opinions. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
