Top sustainable kids’ clothing brands

Sustainable clothes for growing up in a greener world.

Sustainable clothes for kids

The most recent estimates suggest that the U.S. threw away 17 million tons of textiles in 2018. That’s almost 6% of the total waste created in the country. 

While fast fashion makes it easy to add a few new items to the closet every time our kids grow a little, that leads to a lot of waste. Instead, make more thoughtful choices and invest in sustainable kids clothing by supporting companies that help keep our planet green for generations to come.
