Urban Baby Co. designs some of the softest onesies around! This adorable Baby Bear onesie and the Hello World onesie on my Instagram account from a few weeks ago are made of the softest organic fair trade cotton. A priority at Urban Baby Co. is sustainability - that is why the materials used to create their products are organic and fair trade, and the packaging materials are made from recycled goods and are biodegradable. Urban Baby Co. is based out of Denver, CO, and their store offers headbands, moccs, swarovski crystal embellished Chuck Taylors, and various bundles that make for wonderful baby gifts. I love how cozy my son is in these onesies!
So what does it mean when something is "fair trade"? After reading more about this on urbanbabyco.com, I know that it means the following:
- No Child Labor
- Fair Wages
- Safe Work Environment
- 8 Hour Work Days
If a company is claiming that they are "fair trade", then and audit by Fair Trade USA can be conducted to ensure that they are in fact abiding by these above practices. I know that these practices seem to be common sense - but the truth is, not everyone in this world has a comfortable work environment. In the past, the US has had horrible working conditions. It takes time to get other folks to be at the current US standards- and by purchasing from companies that use fair trade products, you are supporting the cause!
