About Organic Cotton

For Baby

Newborns spend up to 16 hours a day sleeping so Honeyami believes that their sleep environment should be restorative and free from harmful chemicals.  Honeyami products are made using organic cotton, finished using non-toxic, low-impact dyes and third party certified by either the OEKO-TEX standard or the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

For the Environment

Not only better for your baby, organic cotton farming is also better for the environment.  Conventional cotton production is considered the world’s ‘dirtiest’ crop due to its heave use of insecticides, the most hazardous pesticide to human and animal health.  Cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land yet uses a disproportionate 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop[1].  Organic cotton farming maintains healthy soil, clean air and ground water, and builds biologically diverse agriculture.

Social Responsibility

7 of the top 15 pesticides used on conventional cotton crops are rated by the EPA as potential or known carcinogens.  These chemicals are harmful to the farmers and pollute those living in cotton growing areas.  Buying organic cotton supports healthy and safe farming communities.

For You

Choosing organic cotton bedding for your child will ensure you prevent them from being in constant contact with harsh chemicals.  Choosing Honeyami bedding allows you to do this without compromising on style.
