The most durable, sustainable, and ethical baby & toddler clothing brands for 2023
In 2023, being made from just organic cotton is NOT going to cut it for the eco-conscious family. Much of the world's organic cotton is either grown by forced labor (ie. the Uighur minority in China) or grown in countries like India that struggle with water scarcity.
The latest class of environmentally responsible baby and toddler clothing brands are using design, rather than supply chain, to solve what will be the biggest challenge of our children's lifetime--the climate crisis.
Beya Made takes a whole new approach to sustainability--with extremely durable clothes that are designed to fit 3x longer. That cuts their carbon and water footprint down by 60%. And when they do get outgrown? You can send them back for a credit!SHOP NOW
Durable enough to hold up to your child’s play, but also soft enough to be against their delicate skin all day. Noble Carriage's Utility Suit is made in Peru with GOTS certified organic Pima cotton canvas.SHOP NOW
Made from 100% re-claimed textiles, Mon Coeur's gender-neutral and design-forward collection is meticulously sourced, and works with only fair wage-paying European factories.

Nui uses natural, sustainable, renewable Merino wool to make it's grow-with-me range of baby and toddler basics. Merino is season-less, as it helps regulate temperature unlike any other fiber. Their unisex styles are designed to be worn and shared for generations of little earthlings.
The purchase of every single one of Tentree's organic cotton pieces plants ten trees. They've planted 65 million trees already, and their goal is to plant 1 billion trees by 2030!
And that's the new class of eco-fashion leaders! Let's make 2023 the year we ask more of our children's clothes!
