The Green Winter Guide: Ethical Children's Clothes for the Colder Months

By Kelly Ekardt 4 years ago 4174 Views No comments

With the clocks going back and temperatures plummeting, it’s time to admit that winter is on its way. Soon we’ll all be reaching for scarves and umbrellas instead of flip flops and sunglasses. But the arrival of winter doesn’t mean that we ethical consumers should neglect our sense of style — for us and our children! Sense Organics is here with a guide to ethical children’s clothes for the colder months.

Organic cotton baby clothes for the winter

Dressing your baby in winter means thinking about layers. The general rule is to dress your baby in one more layer than an adult would be comfortable in. Whether you are indoors or outdoors, layering organic cotton baby clothes is a must, and adding accessories can be great for changing temperature conditions. Putting on an organic cotton hat is perfect for car journeys or other trips that start cold and get warmer.


When layering up, you should think about adding a sweatshirt. Our boys wolf print sweatshirt is perfect for keeping your little one cosy while adding some winter style. For a long-sleeve top that’s ideal for layering, our girls organic cotton navy t-shirt will go with anything and keep your baby warm. A snowflake design makes it the perfect addition to a winter wardrobe.

For an even more versatile option, our reversible wrap jacket offers the fashion-conscious parent two options depending on the rest of the outfit. Go for the plain side when layering, or bring out the polar bear print for guaranteed cuteness. We think choosing organic baby clothes should also mean you are spoilt for choice.

Fair Trade children’s clothes: t-shirts and tops

The staple item for any season is the classic t-shirt. With winter on its way, it’s time to think about stocking up on tops for layering — and for those cosy duvet days when a coat is too much.


Animals we associate with the cold, like penguins, polar bears and reindeer, are firm favourites among children — and adults, too! Our boys long-sleeve shirt with penguin motif will steal the spotlight, and our long-sleeve penguin print t-shirt will make your girl look at home in even the most formal family photos.

Arctic prints are all the rage this season and repeated graphic designs are the perfect statement piece. Keep the rest of the outfit simple and let the penguins and polar bears do the talking!

Organic cotton jackets and jumpers

For the chilliest days spent jumping in puddles and kicking leaves, an organic cotton coat is the ideal choice. Combined with a good pair of wellies and some organic cotton trousers, your child can enjoy the best of winter in supreme warmth.

This adorable teal raincoat is one of our favourites. The stylish polar bear print is sure to appeal to your little one. It’s the perfect example of water-repellent, stylish and ethical children’s clothing. Staying dry has never looked so cute!

The classic Christmas jumper has returned with a bang in the past few years, and now your kids can get in on the act. Our Norwegian-style navy sweater is bold, practical and perfect for festive family photos. The snowflake design will have you wishing for snow! What’s more, it’s made from 100% organic cotton, which is environmentally and socially friendly.

Ethical children’s clothes: sleepwear

Ethical children’s clothing doesn’t stop when it reaches bedtime. Sense Organics offers a range of organic children’s clothes for the small hours, including a classic blue and white striped pyjama set, complete with a reindeer motif. The two-tone design and iconic winter colour scheme mean your little one can drift off to the land of nod in style.


And for a design that little girls will love, check out our berry red, penguin-patterned pyjamas. The soft organic cotton will have her sleeping in comfort during the chilly months. Choosing Fair Trade kids clothing also means that cotton farmers get the best price for their crops, so you can sleep easy knowing that you’ve done your bit.
