Why are organic cotton children so expensive? One of the reasons why organic children's clothing is more expensive than conventionally grown cotton clothing is economies of scale. The demand for organic cotton clothes is steadily increasing, but the organic market is still just a small drop in the consumption outlet. Therefore, there are extra costs at every step of the process. For example, while it can cost 10GBP a bit to make 20 baby beds, it would cost 2GBP a bit to make 200. That's because the organization and preparations involved before the sewing clothes are long and complicated. However, when sewing begins, the process is reliable fast. Therefore, the more clothes ordered, the more the cost per piece is reduced. From manufacturing to shipping to advertising and marketing, small businesses lack size and purchasing power to achieve economies of scale that reduce prices. Another factor that drives up the cost of organic clothing is that it is actually more expensive to grow and harvest. This may come as a surprise, but the natural methods and processes involved in keeping pests and weeds in the lake actually take more time to reach and are more expensive than the chemical aids and pesticides used in the growth of conventional, unsustainable cotton. Chemicals are used to accelerate and facilitate the harvesting process of conventional cotton, while the organic cotton crop is made without the use of chemical shorts and is therefore more labor intensive and in turn costs more money. But isn't organic cotton more than just money? The motivation for choosing organic baby clothes will not only come from enjoying the garment itself, but also from the environmental awareness of the buyer and the seller. The cost of a product is not just what it says on its price tag. It is so important to be aware of our impact on the planet, and while organic cotton can be more expensive to buy, it is certainly worth it when we remember where the extra cost goes and how it will benefit us and our planet in so many way. Fair trade tends to go hand in hand with organic cotton and is another important factor contributing to that cost. Organic garments are usually produced locally or in overseas factories where workers are paid a fair salary. It is easy to price a garment cheaply when you pay your drains and workers almost nothing. If you as a consumer.
