Why should we buy Eco brands?
When you buy clothes from Eco brands, there are three things that are considered:
1) It is better for the planet. The clothes are made from material that meet certificate organic standards, such as GOTS and ECO-TEX. The main benefit is that the materials are not treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides or Geneticallz Modified Organisms. Organic cotton uses less water and less fuel is required in the growth.
2) It is better for the child. There are no petroleum or other harmful chemicals used in the dying and printing on the garment.
3) It is better for the workers. They work with safer material, and are paid with living wages.afe, healthy, non-abusive, nondiscriminatoryenvironment with living wages.
when a brand doesn't mention being ecological or having a sustainable supply chain, there is a change they are using harmful material and no social screening is done to ensure that no forced labor is used.
Can I send used babyclothes to Asteraki for reselling?
Being a ecological brand, we support reuse of baby clothes. When your child has outgrown the clothes from your box, send clothes in good condition to us and we give you 30% of the reselling price in the form of a voucher for your future purchases at Asteraki.ch.
