We don’t know about you, but we love hot summer days at the beach or pool with our family. Nothing beats spending the entire day outside, soaking up as much rays of sunshine as we possibly can… However: protection! We figure you know all about the dangers of too much sun exposure, and so does this beautiful brand from the UK. Manufactured in Italy at a small family firm, Folpetto strives to use a sustainable techno-fabric made with Econyl (a 100% regenerated polyamide fiber from post consumer materials, eg abandoned fishnets and other plastic waste) for over 80% of their swimsuits. Safe, stylish ánd sustainable: excellent combo!
Amsterdam based Gray Label has been a steady favorite for years! While always keeping kids and their personalities in mind, this label produces the most beautiful and comfortable organic clothing. In order to respect the world we live in, Gray Label strives to keep their items and materials circulating, never goes on sale and stays away from making trendy pieces. All products carry the GOTS certified label, which both means and assures facts such as no chemicals and pesticides, fair price and direct payment, safe and hygienic working conditions, no child labor, and leftoverfabrics are reused. An absolute must in your kids’ holiday wardrobe!
Did you know that more than 500 million plastic toothbrushes are produced each and every year? Imagine the disastrous effect this has on our planet… This is where brilliant The Bam and Boo comes in: toothbrushes made of 95% renewable sources, being 95% biodegradable (the remaining 5% is made up by the nylon made bristles-since this material still proves to offer the best oral care. However, they are still searching for other options). Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth, naturally antibacterial (so no need for pesticides, fertilizers or huge amounts of water) and sourced at a certified supplier, which ensures sustainability. The Bam and Boo offers a 3-monthly subscription (simply delivered by mail!), family packages and other eco friendly products such as straws and bags. Smart and sustainable: we love it!
