Like many mums, I often got side tracked in the supermarkets by cute dresses, and gorgeous rompers. I would wander round the food aisles choosing our standard brands, a few supermarket own brands (which we are looking at more and more) along with some organic and fair trade products. I do like to think I’m doing my best.
In the news, and on TV, we always hear about how fertilisers and chemicals can be harmful, and more importantly how they have been harmful by getting into the ground, the water supply and the food chain. I kind of understand how they can affect human health, and wildlife. So, why don’t I buy organic clothing more often?
We have started to grow our own food, such as herbs, fruit and a few vegetables, with all being organic. This is so we know where some of our food comes from, and our kids learn more about food in general.
Clothes shopping has always been a struggle. With their dad at work (and myself working part time), and trying to control two kids. It’s always such a rush, filled with looking and touching things, in coffee shops as they are hungry again, picking up leaves and stones, and not actually getting to half the shops I planned to get too (I like to write a list).
We can’t afford to always buy organic clothes, but everything I’ve ever bought which has been organic has lasted years, washed well and been lovely and soft. In my experience organic has always been a really good buy, a good investment really.
Natures Kids was our way of doing something good for our kids, and also to make a difference to other people in our situation. We try to be accommodating as possible as we understand, that not everyone is in the same situation. If I can be helping a mum via messages, while breast feeding, that’s what we do.
