In the last few years, there has been more demand and, hence, more supply for organic baby bedding. Often for good reason (limited use of chemical dyes for example), the color palette of organic cotton is usually muted and subdued. Coyuchi baby bedding is an exception.
Coyuchi uses embroidery to add flavor and fun to their organic cotton baby products. They use only 100% certified organic cotton and have received the United Nations Second Annual Fashion Industry Award for Environmental Excellence. The cotton they use is grown in India and is certified fair-trade.
Coyuchi is dedicated to their organic mission and provides plenty of information on their website about the importance of organic cotton to the earth's health as well as straightforward information about their own practices. For example, did you know that 25% of all insecticide is applied to cotton? A traditional cotton plant grown in the U.S. might be sprayed with as many as 200 chemicals which equals a third a pound of chemicals per pound of cotton. Yikes!
You can view Coyuchi's full collection of adult and baby products on their website and also find a local or online retail source.
