Organic cotton is a better, more eco-conscious alternative to non-organic textile materials grown without toxic pesticides, fertilizers, or GMOs—all proven damaging to the environment, farmer, and manufacturer. Organic cotton is also healthier for consumers as exposure to pesticides can result in a range of health problems, from headaches and nausea to long-term, chronic diseases such as cancer, reproductive damage, and endocrine disturbances.
Here are the best brands for organic and sustainable clothing:
Organic Basics is all about environmentally friendly things, including adults’ underwear, basic tees and tanks, and cozy leggings. These sustainable, green foundations were born in Denmark in 2015 (but are available worldwide) and are ethical, low-waste, and low-impact. Perfect when you are on the go, mainly because wearing our Organic Girls Dresses keeps you fresh after wearing. Wash less, do more.
Groceries Apparel is concerned about materials — the brand traces its organic cotton from seed to skin and ensures a fair and low carbon footprint. All clothing is made sustainably and responsibly in Los Angeles to be delivered internationally, where the brand works to reduce waste and recycled materials as much as possible. Apparel’s Organic Girls Dresses ranges from activewear for adults to fantastic maxi dresses. We particularly love vegetable-dyed products for a unique look.

MATE The Label
MATE The label uses only natural or non-toxic materials for manufacture, such as low-impact dyes, 100% linen, organic cotton, and Tencel (derived from sustainably sourced wood).

And the packaging is made entirely of recycled materials.
