Sustainable Baby Clothes: 9 Brands For The Best Organic Snuggles

The SJ Team


Oh baby!

Let’s talk onesies, bodysuits, and adorable sustainable baby clothes that won’t break the B Corp bank or our blue planet.

Why?

Because the textile industry is dirtier than that eco-friendly diaper.

Those 8,000-chemicals, toxic dyes, and flame retardants, might keep you up at night—even if your baby is sleeping soundly. 

Fortunately, these are all too easy to keep out of your home by dressing your mini-you in the best organic baby clothes.

About Mightly

Founded by Tierra Forte and her daughter Eloise—Mightly’s CKO, Chief Kid Officer—Mightly is run by moms who “know what matters”.

Hence affordable sustainable baby clothes that are safe yet durable enough to “handle any kind of adventure”.

While their selection of toddler and children’s clothing is vast, their strictly baby collection contains just one garment: a one-piece pajama romper.

But at that age, what more do they really need?

Mightly’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices

Materials:

Mightly uses only 100% GOTS certified organic long -staple cotton.

The clothing is absent chemical flame retardants and is tested to CPSC safety compliance.

Flatlock seams and a tagless design ensure a scratching suit won’t be the reason they’re waking you up at 3am.

Supply chain & labor practices:

Their cotton is sourced through a partnership with India’s Chetna Organic Farmers Association, a farmer-owned nonprofit.

The ethical baby clothes are also made in India in Fair Trade certified factories, of which Mightly knows all. They pay additional Fair Trade premiums to the workers, too.

By partnering with the Kidizen REWEAR™ Collective, they promote the resale and reuse of their clothing.

How We Found The Best Sustainable Baby Clothes

From eco-friendly toys to teeny tiny t-shirts, we can apply our sustainable fashion criteria to determine who makes the best eco-friendly baby clothes.

Materials:

What material makes for the best affordable organic baby clothes?

Organic cotton, of course! 

Grown without herbicides, pesticides, and other harmful toxins found in conventional cotton, it gives us parents peace of mind.

Other sustainable options include non toxic bamboo viscose, recycled synthetics, TENCEL, and modal, paired with nickel and lead-free hardware and non-toxic dyes. 

All natural fabrics also mean garments are compostable if oopsies occur—helping in your zero waste baby efforts.

Supply chain and labor practices:

Coddling and cooing over a baby is much better with a clear conscience.

While we weren’t able to find any of the best organic baby clothes made in the USA, we did find brands with some A-OK transparency and worker protections in place, like codes of conduct, annual internal audits, and third-party certifications.

Green business practices:

The best organic baby brands not only design a sustainable product, but design it to last—especially when babies grow in and out of things so quickly.

Things a brand can do to curb the 12 million baby garments hitting US landfills annually include designing clothes with room-to-grow features, using quality craftsmanship so they can be passed down, and implementing their own circularity programs.

Inclusivity:

While we’re not so much worried about size inclusivity on this one, gender inclusivity is starting to make its way into the world of baby clothes.

We’re happy to see gender neutral options, as well as diverse teams, baby models and affordable sustainable baby clothes that are accessible to all.

Community & charitable giving:

Your baby can grow up in a world that’s more respectful, fair, and just—thanks in some part to these companies and their commitment to social and environmental justice.

  1. Sorry, these are not affordable brands. Affordable would be supermarket prices, i.e. £5 – £10 for a sleepsuit, not £30 as is the case for some of these. I can buy adult clothing for that price.

    Another indication that being sustainable is not always cost effective for people who earn less.

    Reply
    • Hi Kim, I agree, “affordable” is relative in this case unfortunately and it’s so frustrating that it’s taking so long for pricing to come down for more sustainable products. Hopefully as more people (who can afford it) prioritise sustainability and ethics, we’ll see that shift in better pricing for the rest of us.
