From normal bedtime hours to cozy weekend lounging, kids spend a lot of time in pajamas. Why not put them to bed in the most environmentally-friendly, chemical residue-free option available – organic cotton pajamas. Choosing children’s pajamas made from sustainably grown organic cotton can help you protect the health of your child, farm workers and our planet.

If pajamas are loose fitting, they’re required by law to be made from material that doesn’t catch fire within 3 seconds of exposure to open flame. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) safety requirements state that pajamas that are not flame resistant must be snug-fitting, as a loose-fitting garment is more likely to catch fire.

DISADVANTAGES OF POLYESTER

Polyester is the main type of fabric used in loose-fitting pajamas, as the fabric weave is intrinsically flame-resistant. Here are some reasons to avoid polyester pajamas:

  • Brominated flame retardants may be added to the polyester polymer during the melt phase of production
  • Polyester is not a breathable fabric and may irritate sensitive skin or cause overheating
  • Polyester is derived from petroleum-based products (non-renewable resources)
  • The dyes used to color polyester fabric are not environmentally-friendly
  • Polyester is not biodegradable

DISADVANTAGES OF CONVENTIONAL (NON-ORGANIC) COTTON

  • Exposes farm workers and consumers to toxic chemicals
  • Pesticide runoff can pollute the surrounding water and soil
  • Cotton is the world’s most heavily sprayed crop. Seven of the 15 pesticides commonly used on cotton in the United States are listed as “probable” or “known” human carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency

ADVANTAGES OF ORGANIC COTTON

  • Organic cotton fabric is breathable
  • Organic cotton fabric is NOT treated with flame retardants
  • Organic cotton has NOT been grown and treated with harmful pesticides
