We at Green Bean use only the highest quality, super soft, sustainable and organic fabrics in our babywear collections, that is why we have chosen to make our range from organic cotton and rayon from bamboo. We have selected these beautiful fibres because they are renewable and grown organically. We believe that organic cotton and bamboo are the best fabric options available. We will continue to search for new innovative fabrics for our upcoming collections.
"We find ourselves in a world where climate change and oil supplies will force the textile industry to make different choices. It must reevaluate its raw material sources and the environmental impact of its production methods. With over 80% of all fiber production in polyester and cotton fibers, fiber and fabric producers must diversify raw materials (incorporating existing fiber stock as a raw material source), lower water and energy consumption, improve soil restoration, and reduce pollutants in production while maintaining the fiber and fabric supply we had come to assume was unlimited.
