For starters, we are dedicated to producing garments made out of certified organic cotton — from the fabrics that touch your child’s skin to the fillings that keep your little one warm and cozy. It’s not the easiest sourcing choice, and it’s more costly, but we believe it’s worth it. Growing organic cotton minimizes the impact on the environment and promotes sustainable farming by eliminating the need for most agricultural chemicals like pesticides and fertilizers. This helps maintain healthy soil, air and water. It also helps maintain healthy people and communities. Organic farming protects growers from harmful chemicals, and organic cotton results in clean, soft, and non-allergenic fabrics that are better for skin, especially sensitive baby skin.
All of our Little Fishkopp sleep bags carry the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification. GOTS is recognized as the world's leading standard for organic textiles. Products that are GOTS certified adhere to rigorous environmental criteria along the entire textile supply chain. This means that in addition to being made from 100% organic cotton with eco-friendly dyes and inks, our sleep bags are free of harmful substances such as lead, nickel and phthalates. Furthermore, GOTS certification requires compliance with social criteria regarding employment and working conditions, so our sleep bags promote sustainability for people, as well as the planet.
We hope that our products inspire you to help us spread the word about the benefits of organic cotton. Small actions by each one of us can add up to a big impact on the planet.
