We Love Organic September
WE'RE OFFICIALLY ORGANIC
Toby Tiger clothes are GOTS-certified. This means we – and you – can be super sure that our lovely cotton suppliers and clothes makers follow only the best methods for organic, social and ethical standards. Factories are checked to make sure workers have a safe and clean environment and are paid a fair, living wage. The factories also need to show how much water and energy they use to make their cotton, while GOTS puts targets and practices into place to help lessen the load. All in all, happy workers make our happy clothes.
WE'RE SAFE AND SOUND
Because organic cotton producers and clothes manufacturers aren't exposed to harsh chemicals and dyes, it makes their work far safer, making it far safer – plus it's miles better for the environment: Organic cotton emits almost half the amount of greenhouse gas than non-organic cotton. Also, only natural pest control methods are used, which helps to keeps the soil fertile, water clean and our air unpolluted. Extra plus points include organic cotton farming using 84% less water than non-organic cotton farming and that most organic cotton is grown in rain-fed areas, putting less pressure on water supplies in local communities.
WE'RE SOFT AND GENTLE
Organic cotton is lovely and super soft on even the most delicate skin, thanks to the ban on all those nasty chemicals. The harsh chemicals and dyes used to process bog-standard cotton break down fibres and damage the fabric. You won't find that with our organic cotton, so it's perfect for babies and kids – and less likely to trigger any allergies and skin conditions like eczema.
WE TAKE IT SLOW
Our commitment to slow fashion means we design timeless collections that don't date – something we've been passionate about since we began in 1998. Our bright and bold colour palette doesn't change and is used to mix and match all our designs. We don't bring out collections every month and knockdown prices for quick sales. Instead, great value designs twice a year that can be worn throughout the seasons.
WE'RE THE WHOLE PACKAGE
As well as our proven eco-credentials, online orders come in easily recyclable paper packaging – right down to the paper tape.
LOVE YOUR CLOTHES FOR LONGER!
Now you see how much organic clothes haven't been messed with like standard clothes, they'll last much longer and wash really well – even at an eco-friendly 30 degrees – so they can be worn again and again. This is why many of our clothes feature thoughtful details to grow with the wearer, from easy poppers and adjustable shoulder straps to reversible fabric – kids love our instantly recognisable clothes for their vibrancy and imagination, while parents love them even more for their practicality and comfort.
SHARE THE LOVE
So, when your little one goes up a size, simply pass clothes on! We encourage you to share the love and pass Toby Tiger clothes along to brothers, sisters and friends for even more stylish and fun-filled days. Your friends will love you for it!
