Fair Trade Baby Clothes and Natural Organic Baby Gifts: Why use Globalkids?
At Globalkids we believe it's important to ask "Why...?" so here are some straightforward answers
Cotton grown naturally has denser fibres producing cloth that is beautifully soft, more durable and holds its shape better - even when washed repeatedly
Organic cotton saves lives - No pesticides, hazardous chemicals (believed to cause up to a million cases of poisoning a year and 20,000 deaths) - so better for farming communities
No formaldehyde (used as a finish) which can cause rashes, asthma etc - so better for those with allergies, asthma or chemical sensitivities - and means it smells cleaner too!
No nickel in the poppers which can cause skin rashes.
Why Fair Trade?
Fair trade guarantees that producers receive fair prices and terms of business. This enables them to plan long-term, use sustainable production practices, support their families and send their children to school
It opens up markets and means we are able to offer many interesting, unusual and often hand crafted items that would not reach the general public otherwise
