Health is very important, and the health of your babies is even more important. A healthy environment helps a baby stay happy and grow to his or her full potential. So you want to do everything you can to make sure your baby’s environment is as healthy as possible.
On a larger scale, you want the world at large to be a healthy place for your child to grow up into as well. Human use of natural resources is rising at an alarming rate, and so is our waste output. So now you may be wondering: what can I do to help this? Well, one thing you can do is to buy organic products.
You are probably aware that you can buy organic food, but you may be surprised to know that you can also buy organic baby blankets and bedding! Buying these things is a great way to support the health of your baby and the health of the environment. To begin with, cotton that is not grown by organic standards is often treated with chemical fertilizers. In some cases, the sheets are coated with formaldehyde as a way of preventing wrinkles.
Buying organic ensures that your blankets are safe and free of such harmful compounds. There are numerous reasons why buying organic is not only great for your children, but also good for the health of the entire earth. The use of integrated pest management and decreased use of pesticides means that organic farms have more biodiversity than non-organic. This also means that there are fewer toxins in runoff, protecting other areas as well.
Therefore buying organic blankets helps to maintain natural environments and protect biodiversity. Remember this the next time you go to the store: the cost of an item is more than just the price.
Do your best to support the environment, and you will help protect your baby’s health at the same time!
