Where can I get ethically made, durable kidswear that is also environmentally friendly?
Here! At Ruth & Ragnar we want to make sure parents don't have to do the extensive and frustrating research we had to do to find sustainable clothing for children. We have done the research and sifted through many amazing brands and are now offering organic kidswear exclusively. You can be 100% sure anything you order from our online store is made with 100% organic cotton, no exceptions!
As a mother, sustainability is of utmost importance to me. The decision to focus solely on kidswear made with organic cotton started with the struggles of finding organic clothing when my daughter Milou was born. Her bed had an organic mattress and soft, organic bed sheets, yet the bodysuits she spent most of her time in were made with cotton grown with highly toxic pesticides. As I dug deeper into research on how bad conventional cotton really is – I found the environmental and social impact it has was not something I wanted to support.
So here it is… Why Organic Cotton:

Who regulates the organic cotton industry?
There are several third-party certification organizations globally which verify that organic producers only use methods and materials allowed in organic production. The seven kidswear brands available at www.ruthandragnar.com spring 2015 use one or two of these agencies:
-“…ensure(s) organic status of textiles from harvesting of raw materials through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing all the way to labeling…”
-“…developed to support organic product integrity by filling a gap in the market; companies needed a way to validate the presence of organic fiber in their finished products.”
-Stepping stone to GOTS
