Why should I shop with bean and me and buy organic baby clothes online?
Because! bean and me is a Brisbane based family owned business. I am a Mum myself and know how hard it can be to find and buy organic baby clothes online – good quality, organic and funky baby and toddler clothes for my little man! After becoming a Mum, and after Jenson having some reactions to some conventional cotton and suffering from eczema, investing in organic cotton baby clothing, and Eco-Friendly products became very important to me.
I’m also very passionate about supporting local and Australian Owned businesses. I want to ensure that Australia remains the wonderful place it is in the future for Jenson to grow up in, so shopping Eco-Friendly and using Australian Owned brands, I know that I’m keeping jobs and local businesses in Aus afloat! We all need to do our little bit, and every little bit counts.
So by shopping with bean and me, you can rest easy knowing that you are playing your part too, and helping our little family grow.

Why choose organic?
A growing number of parents are buying organic baby clothes. There are a few reasons for this.. although the number one reason is that organic baby clothes protects your baby’s skin from harmful chemicals.
Why choose organic baby clothes…
- What we put onto our skin is absorbed into our body
- Babies skin is thinner, sensitive and readily absorb toxins
- Conventional cotton growing uses harmful pesticides that are absorbed by the skin
- Conventional cotton production uses chemical substances to wash, bleach, prepare, dye, print and finish the textiles
- Chemicals in conventional cotton can cause allergies, rashes, asthmatic problems, eczema
- Is made free from chemicals and toxins
- Is safe for sensitive skin
- Is natural, soft, and is as durable as conventional cotton
What is organic cotton?
The simple answer – Organic cotton is soft and beautiful, it’s made free from chemicals and allows our skin to breath.
Organic cotton is farmed naturally, avoiding harmful pesticides and other chemicals. This process is safer and cleaner for the environment. Being organic means organic agriculture is not exposing our people, soil, air and water to these harsh chemicals.
More and more people are looking for healthy lifestyle options and are concerned about the health of the planet. Many people say they can taste the difference between organic and conventional foods, and we think the same goes for clothes – you can feel the difference with natural fabrics. People are recognizing the difference between organic and conventional cotton, so instead of going with the cheapest option, they are now consciously choosing organic cotton clothing.
Often cotton is regarded as a natural fabric. However, there are many ethical and environmental issues in the way it is grown.
