In recent years we have noticed being green, promoting environmental sustainability and making ethical considerations when purchasing goods has caught on. More and more people are voting with their money and seeking out ethical brands in all areas of buying. In some cases huge numbers of people voice their disapproval of the way a company conducts business by taking part in a consumer boycott. For more information on being an ethical consumer, visit http://www.ethicalconsumer.org.

Staying consistent with the nature of Bird Kids and the type of products we sell, many of our brands are green or ethical in one way or another. This post will give a brief overview of our ethical and fairtrade clothing.

We were thrilled to see Katvig scored very highly on this ethical clothing review. Katvig use a mixture of organic cotton and recycled polyester to create their environmentally friendly clothes. Their range is also Oeko-Tex Standard 100 approved which means it is free from harmful substances at all stages of production.photo of katvig clothingAravore make a range of exquisite baby blankets and coats made from 100% organic fair trade cotton.

As well as clothes we also stock several children’s toys which are environmentally friendly, one such example of these eco friendly toys are Kidsonroof. Their vibrant models, which are inspired by nature in their design, are made from recycled paper and are 100% biodegradable.
