I'm tired of Made in Bangladesh baby clothing- what's the alternative?
I'm always tempted to ignore the fact that most of the affordable clothing that's out there is produced in Bangladesh or China. I just checked my baby boy's clothing's labels and I was pretty shocked (especially since I read a lot about how stuff is produced in those places)!
Besides sweatshop labor, the question is whether those countries always meet our safety standards! I mean, just read up on it (or google this stuff!)- Nonylphenol ethoxylates, which are used as detergents, keep being detected in many products of big brand clothing manufacturers. Those break down to form nonylphenol, a dangerous toxin that has persistent and hormone-disrupting properties. It's not the stuff I want on my baby's skin!
So what's the solution? I really don't know but a friend of mine just backed this campaing on Kickstarter and they say they do things differently.. what do you think about this? I'm not sure if I shall give them a shot, cause I do really like the idea.. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/505557876/kinds-stoff-rethinking-baby-fashion-0-24-months
This is only on for 39 days.. which other brands do you support? I like http://www.thelittleseed.com/ as well.. They also produce in LA..
