So many people have asked me why buy organics? I have also been asked repeatedly, " Why buy organic cotton items, it's not like your eating it so what's the big deal??" Ashley answers this perfectly on the Ashleybug Organics website.
These are Ashleybug Organics facts on why its important to purchase organic cotton:
- Conventional cotton uses 10 percent of all agricultural chemicals and 25 percent of the world’s insecticides
- One-third of a pound of chemicals are needed just to grow enough conventional cotton for a regular T-shirt.
I was sent a Large Organic Appletree bib for babies ages 5 months and up. It retails for $12.99 I was also sent an Organic Apple Tree Burp Cloth/Lovey. It retails for $15.00 You can purchase them as a gift set for $25.00
Ashleybug Organics is offering 10% off your entire order and free shipping for the month of July!
When I received the items, I was amazed at the quality! The fabric used to make both items is very thick. This is so important when baby is sick. You don't want thin material, that allows food or spit up to saturate the burp cloth. I immediately put the burp cloth to the test. It was really super absorbent!! I won't elaborate, as a new mother you can imagine.... The bib works great to keep baby dry, when they are going through the teething phase and drooling all over the place. It's so frustrating to get my baby all cleaned up and dressed only to find out, the bib is soaked through with drool and so it's their shirt. Not the case with Ashelybug Organics bib! I love the amount of space around the neck of the bib. It's the perfect length and not to tight around the neck The items I was sent to sample are highly functional but also so cute!! All designs are printed with water based inks on organic cotton sateen. All products have organic cotton flannel backing. They are washed and pre-shrunk in all natural eco-friendly detergent. I discovered you can wash these over and over again. They hold their shape,softness, and still look beautiful!
