Why Sustainable Materials Matter: The Benefits of Choosing Eco-Friendly Clothing For Your Kids

Since the early 2000’s, the team at YEAH LIFE have worked with all different types of natural, organic and synthetic materials, they’ve designed thousands of products for world renowned brands. When we started designing YEAH LIFE, we made a conscious effort as a team to only use what we believe to be the best eco-friendly materials available, materials that would only have positive benefits for your kids. That’s why we chose hemp, organic cotton and recycled polyester to craft our products with. Let’s talk more about it.

Why Sustainable Materials Matter: The Benefits of Choosing Eco-Friendly Clothing For Your Kids

Why do sustainable materials matter?

Traditional clothing production can have a major impact on the environment. From the toxic pesticides used to grow cotton to the large amounts of energy used to manufacture synthetic materials, fast fashion is wreaking havoc on the environment. There are alternatives. When you choose to support a small, ethical brand like YEAH LIFE that uses sustainable materials, has solar-powered production, you’re helping reduce your carbon footprint and helping to preserve natural resources for future generations.

Forget fast fashion, let's teach our kids to slow down

Fast fashion has taken over the world. It’s harmful and unsustainable, it prioritises cheap synthetic materials and overnight trends over the health of the environment and workers’ rights. Teaching our kids that it’s ok to slow dow, not to worry about trends but rather to prioritise sustainability, quality, ethics and giving back to the less fortunate, will make for a positive future. Embracing these ideas will be far better for the environment and the people involved in making our clothing.

So, next time you’re shopping for your kids (or yourself), think about supporting brands working towards a better future. By choosing sustainable materials and supporting small, Australian brands like YEAH LIFE, you can make a positive difference to the future of the fashion industry. Plus, we guarantee your kids will love our clothing, there’s 100% positivity stitched into every thread. Shop now and join us in making a positive impact on the world, one t-shirt at a time.
