Why Organic Cotton? – Penguin Organics

Why Organic Cotton?

Comfortable, versatile, good looking and easy on the earth, pure organic cotton 
has it all.

At Penguin Organics, we believe that organic cotton nurture kids sensitive skin with super soft purity, while caring for farmers and our earth with non-toxic ecosystems. We combine the finest and softest 100% organic cotton with unique but classic designs and a serious attention to detail at every stage of production.

We are very proud that our baby clothes are made to the GOTS social and environmental standards, an organic certification that covers the entire supply chain, from field to finished product. 

Did you know that non-organic cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land yet uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop? 

Cotton growers who make the transition to biologically based growing practices expect not only to offer a healthier and cleaner product, but also to benefit the planet. Some of the benefits of organic cotton include: 

  • Organic cotton is a natural and breathable fiber. Whether it's the soft organic cotton romper of our apple collection or the organic cotton blanket of our penguin collection, or the fun organic cotton bonnet or bib from our hippo collection, each piece feels so wonderful against the skin.
  • Organic cotton is grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, so there are no residues in the fabric when it gets to your nursery. That's good news, especially for soft and sensitive new skin
  • Organic farming methods support the land and the ecosystems around them. And organic cotton is never grown from genetically modified seed. Organic farming provides a viable alternative to the large-scale conventional farming model. Farmers work without the presence of toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and that's good for both their own health and the health of the land they farm.

Our organic cotton washes well, and not only does it hold up beautifully through wash after wash, it gets even softer over time, all the while maintaining a great fit.
