The SJ Team

There are a few things every parent wants for their kids: safety, security, and the ability to grow up in a better world.

Providing them with comfortable and safe clothes is a start, but it’s even better when those clothes are produced and sold in a way that better supports the planet and the people on it.

So, who earns straight As in the world of sustainable kids’ clothing?

Everything we recommend to you on Sustainable Jungle is independently researched and we ask all brands to confirm their claims. To avoid waste, we test products on an as needed basis.

Eco Kids Wear For A Pro-Planet Playtime

Bounce Mkt believes secondhand kids clothing is sustainable clothing because it keeps valuable (and often briefly used) materials from the landfill. They offer a huge range, from frilly dresses to durable wear worthy of climbing trees.

Speaking of climbing trees, tentree keeps kids and the planet healthy through impressive carbon commitments and supply chain transparency behind their ethical fair trade kids clothing.

If you’re still wondering where to buy ethical clothing for kids, US brand Firebird Kids creates sustainable, gender-neutral designs with a European flair, while reducing shipping emissions with entirely USA-based manufacturing.

Hopscotch your way to the end of the article to see how we graded these sustainable kids’ clothing brands on their ethical report cards.

About Bounce Mkt

It’s a well known fact among parents that keeping kids clothed can be an expensive venture considering how fast they grow.

That’s why the most affordable and sustainable clothes for kids are those that have already lived a life before reaching your child (i.e. used kids clothing).

So bounce with joy for Bounce Mkt and their high-quality dedicated online kids consignment store filled with second-hand kids clothes and shoes. Conveniently shop by age (infant to 10 years) or by occasion, like classics, playful, sporty, and dressy. 

Bounce Mkt believes “secondhand doesn’t have to be second best”, which is why all clothing (except those new-with-tags) is professionally laundered and consists of quality, durable brands only.

In other words, everything available is in top-notch condition, so no surprise stains or rips when you open your package.

Anyone can buy online, but you can only sell in-person via their store in Hoboken, NJ, where they also offer free local donation pickups and delivery.

Bounce Mkt’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


All fabrics are all high quality secondhand fabrics and garments are regularly checked in accordance to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls.

Supply chain & labor practices:

All clothing is sorted, evaluated, and shipped from their New Jersey store. 

No appointment is necessary to drop off items, and they pay outright for your accepted items (no waiting until they sell).

Carbon commitments & green practices:

Any items Bounce doesn’t buy can either be returned to you, or donated to a partner local non-profit or Helpsy—a Certified B Corp textile reuse and recycling organization—making it easy to ensure all clothing (even unsellable items) finds a responsible end-of-life.

They also use recycled and recyclable shipping materials and take every opportunity to reuse materials.


In addition to boys and girls categories, Bounce Mkt also offers a selection of gender “neutral” clothing.

About Firebird

For sustainable kids’ clothing USA, get ready for a magical adventure with Firebird Kids

Named after the mythical creature found in many Slavic fairy tales, the brand blends its European roots with American casual cool style to create high-quality and durable kids’ clothing. 

We had the opportunity to sport Firebird’s clothing, and from opening the package to trying it on our daughter, the brand did not disappoint. 

The 100% organic cotton Marled Pink Chunky Sweater, marled in Italy then made in NYC, featurs a combination of bright blue and ivory yarn which gives the sweater a soft color and even softer texture perfect for cool fall days. 

If that was too warm, our daughter can pull on the Cotton Cashmere Hoodie. This hoodie is soft and stretches juuuust enough to make it comfortable without over doing it. It’s made of 85% Egyptian Giza cotton and 15% cashmere.

Firebird’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices


Firebird’s clothing is made from GOTS-certified 100% organic cotton grown from non-GMO seeds. 

They source their cotton from Peru, since the country has banned GMO cotton seeds (thus eliminating the cross-contamination risk between crops).

The Pass It On resale platform allows you to buy the same high-quality garments at a lower price point. If it’s your child that’s outgrown the item, just click “Sell”. These programs keep outgrown clothes out of the landfills and into the closets of the next childhood adventure.

How We Found The Best Ethical Kids’ Clothing Brands

Wondering how to buy sustainable kid’s clothes? 

For all the concern and effort we put toward buying adult sustainable clothing, kids’ clothing often doesn’t get the same degree of scrutiny.

We get it: they’re in and out of clothing so fast, sometimes you barely have time to blink, let alone consider the ethics behind that suddenly too-small t-shirt.

That’s why we used our sustainable and ethical fashion guide to assemble this list of the best sustainable clothing brands for kids, so you can spend less time shopping and more running them to school…and soccer practice and dance lessons and the other million places they have you running between.


Sustainable fabrics are a must for eco-friendly kids’ clothes, and many of our favorites are making it into kids’ wardrobes. 

These include organic fabrics like hemp and organic cotton, recycled materials (polyester, denim, cotton), and TENCEL lyocell fabric.

We were happy to see these were typically processed with non-toxic and organic dyes. Organic kids clothes are, after all, always preferred.

Supply chain and labor practices: 

These brands want to make sustainable clothing for kids—not use kids to make clothes. That’s a non-negotiable for us.

In addition to never using sweatshops or child labor, we want to see fair trade practices, safe working conditions, fair wages, and other employee benefits. 

Manufacturing certifications can help turn that A into an A+ on a brand’s ethical report card.

Carbon commitments & green practices:

To ensure that our planet is happy and healthy once kids reach adulthood, we love seeing sustainable children’s clothing brands that put eco-practices in place. 

These include conservative resource use, avoiding single-use plastics in favor of recycled or eco-friendly materials, prioritizing local supply chains, upcycling or reselling old garments, using carbon offset programs, and working to reduce emissions overall.


Kids are pretty innocent, meaning they haven’t yet experienced the harshness of how non-inclusive the world can be. We’d like to keep it that way!

We like to see brands that overall pay mind to inclusivity and diversity, whether that be through being women or POC-owned or through using a diverse cast of children to show off their new duds.

Because impressing gender roles on children is so last century, we enjoyed finding unisex outfits, too.

Community & charitable giving: 

Taken together, these brands display an impressive collection of charitable initiatives to support children, animals, and adults around the globe.

Final Thoughts On Eco-Friendly Kids Clothing Brands

Slow fashion isn’t just important for those old enough to read clothing labels; it’s never too early to dress ethically.

Case in point: sustainable baby clothes brands; which you can also check out if your tyke is too young for this list.

To make kids clothes sustainable—and save yourself some money in the process while they’re growing like weeds—we recommend checking out online thrift stores for second-hand kids clothing before buying new. 

And remember to donate, hand down or trade in clothes once they no longer fit.

If you have friends or family members with other pint-sized sustainable fashionistas, be a pal and help spread the word about the best sustainable kids’ clothing by sharing this article with them.
