It's not enough today for something to just look good. At Sea Apple, we believe we should also do good. We can choose to care about how we make things and the impact it leaves on our planet and us. Just as we are constantly inspired by children, we believe we must do better for them.
Working with Organic Cotton
Conventional cotton seems innocuous and safe for newborn baby clothes and kids clothing, however it is one of the most chemically treated and environmentally damaging crops out there. The production of regular cotton requires the heavy use of synthetic fertilisers. These often end up in waterways, posing serious pollution and upending aquatic communities. Cotton production is also extremely taxing on water and land resources.
This is why at Sea Apple, we’ve been working towards the use of organic, recycled and sustainable textiles as far as possible. Organic cotton is grown from organic seeds, which have not been genetically modified. Organic farming processes also consume fewer resources and water, emit lower greenhouse gas emissions and are generally produced without synthetic chemicals, which creates less pollution. These help sustain the health of ecosystems, soils and people.
GOTS Certification for Newborn Baby Clothes
For your baby, organic cotton is also simply a better choice. Because it is grown and produced without chemicals, it doesn’t cause irritation to newborn sensitive skin and is great for babies with allergies. Organic cotton is also super soft, cozy and comfy, and breathes great. Look out for certifications like GOTS, which is the most recognised international certification for organic production today. At Sea Apple, we are moving as much of our production as possible to GOTS certified sources.
Slow Fashion, Small Batch Production
Our organic baby clothes are also made in small batches, as close to home in Singapore as we can, so we don’t overproduce and sit on large stocks of inventory. To further reduce waste, we also work with our production partners to gather as much of our fabric cutting waste as possible to repurpose them into new uses like masks, hair bows and garment bags.
