Creating sustainable and ethically produced garments can be challenging.
Creating sustainable garments for children can be even more tricky, especially considering the fact that they grow seven sizes in their first two years.
How can you ensure to live a sustainable lifestyle while also bearing in mind that kids grow so rapidly? What solutions are available for parents and guardians who want to ensure that they’re choosing the right options?
Luckily, there has been an increase in innovative solutions and business models when it comes to designing more sustainable garments for children. Whether that’s incredibly durable garments that grow with the child or clothing rental services for toddlers – the possibilities keep growing.
Due to the fact that fair pricing and ethical labour are a big and important part of ethical production, the price point is sometimes not as accessible, particularly when bearing in mind that children need much more items of clothing than adults as they grow so quickly.
Some solutions for this could be to pass on clothes to relatives or friends with younger children, sell unused clothes on second hand platforms or utilise clothes through rental platforms.
Finding reliable sustainable options takes time and lots of research, which is something a lot of new parents don’t have. Therefore companies need to make sure that their customer experience is convenient and customer friendly, making sustainable childrenswear more accessible.
