06.09.2009 – Yes It’s Organic, an online store featuring only organic and eco friendly products, just launched a new line of 100% Certified Organic baby and toddler toys.
Ed Mass, President and Founder of Yes It’s Organic, said he’s excited about this new line. “We are always looking for new items to help support a healthy lifestyle for people and the planet. Introducing this new toy line helps concerned parents create a healthy environment for their new family members.”
Organic toys are especially essential since children and babies are most vulnerable to the sensitivities of chemicals and pesticides typically present in non-organic toys and products.
According to Mass, it’s important to consider organic textiles, including toys, because, “Babies and toddlers are forever putting items in their mouths, including their toys, and those items can retain toxic chemicals used in the growing and manufacturing of the item. But our new 100% Certified Organic Toys line gives peace of mind to concerned parents. Our toys are produced safely and organically; they are safe, free of chemicals and pesticides.”
Non-organic cotton production is one of the highest users of insecticides. During the manufacturing process, non-organic textiles use toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and other known carcinogens and skin irritants.
It’s no wonder that more parents are seeking organic and eco friendly options for their families, especially their babies and toddlers.
Yes, babies are resilient. But they are also very sensitive to environmental factors. They can develop severe allergic reactions (or worse) to chemicals and products used in non-organic and synthetic materials. Mass says he hears often from his customers that they are concerned about rashes, skin irritations and allergies developing in their children. That’s why they are seeking organic and eco friendly products from his store.
The eco friendly and organic toys offered through Yes It’s Organic are chemical and pesticide free and are made using:
— only 100% USDA Certified Organic Cotton
— bright, fun colors from eco-friendly dyes- All colorants are tested to meet and exceed the most stringent global safety standards
