When it comes to our kids, terms like natural, organic and safe are music to our ears, because buying products with these labels helps us feel like we’re giving our kids the best start in life. The trouble is, all that we see, read or hear, cannot necessarily be believed. Terms like these, including the much-beloved ‘organic,’ may be loosely regulated. That’s why it’s important to be informed, so you know how to tell a truly organic product from a misleading one. When it comes to organic cotton, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the bees-knees. So, when it’s GOTS certified, you know that every part of a cotton textile product is exactly as it should be - 100% safe for your little ones. Here are 5 reasons why it’s worth choosing GOTS certified bedding, for the good of our planet, our people and of course, your kids.

The Australian Childhood Foundation

The Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF) is a non-profit/non-governmental organization that helps children who suffered abuse heal from their trauma in a nurturing and encouraging environment. Abused children are often caught up in a downward spiral of low self-esteem, stress, trust issues, and internalized trauma. The more a child feels alienated, disconnected, and misunderstood, the more they withdraw. Their learning skills and ability to concentrate suffers at school and this unleashes another wave of low self-esteem, stress, and other issues. Around 68% of the children referred to ACF trail their peers in academic development by at least two years.

But, you might be shocked to hear that their soft, pillowy bedding isn’t the safe haven you thought.
