Keeping your children safe is a full time job, and teaching them right from wrong is a hard but important life skill. That’s why we decided to only work with suppliers that can provide certified safe and ethically sourced products and materials – and have the credentials to back up their claims.
Beyond complying with all of the relevant local legislation, all of our clothing is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified. What does that mean?
“If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and…is harmless for human health…In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements.”
Our clothing suppliers are either WRAP and/or SEDEX certified, and internally we work every day to try and reduce our own environmental impact.
Our mail bags are made from sugarcane, our packing paper and packaging tape from fully recycled paper and all our packaging materials are fully recyclable.
We also include an organic drawstring bag with every purchase for two reasons – 1, it helps to protect the clothes we’re sending you and 2, we know how handy it is to have a little carry bag for your little one’s bits and pieces that you know is safe, ethically sourced and can be reused time and time again.
We know that we’re not perfect, but as a small business we strive to try our best and make the world a better place for our Ickle Baos. If you’ve got any suggestions on how we can make our products even more sustainable or eco-friendly then please do contact us and we’ll be happy to listen to your feedback.
