Sustainibility & Ethics
Baby Be Good creates high-quality, durable products, produced ethically and sustainably, right here at home, in London Ontario. We are a small business with an emphasis on respect for all people, and a high quality of life for ourselves and for our partners.
Wearing good clothes means the people who made them receive fair pay for their work, while working in a safe & thriving environment. It also means that the fabrics of the garments are made in an ethical and eco-conscious manner.
The supply chain for each Baby Be Good garment depends on the origin of the raw materials, expertise required, and production. We touch every piece, and hand pack each box before we send our pieces into the world.
We regularly make visits to our manufacturing site so we can ensure that their employment and environmental practices meet our standards. Our manufacturers are talented people that are producing a number of local London projects.
Domestic garment manufacturing is an industry that is in grave danger of going extinct, especially here in Canada. This extinction would lead to the elimination of thousands of jobs for both sewing factory owners, and highly skilled workers and craftsmen alike. It brings us great pride to support our local community and be involved in Micro-Manufacturing. Micro-Manufacturing is manufacturing garments in small batches. We do not want to over produce, because that can lead to unnecessary waste.
We make sure to always use eco-conscious fabrics including;
Oeko-Tex certified fabrics.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified products have been tested for harmful substances to protect your health. Tested for Toxic Chemicals. This label certifies that every component of the product, from the fabric to the thread and accessories, has been rigorously tested against a list of up to 350 toxic chemicals.
Recycled cottons & organic cottons to reduce our water usage footprint & pesticide usage footprint.
Bamboo because it grows rapidly, needs very little water, fertiliser, or pesticides, and sequesters a large amount of carbon dioxide, absorbing five times more carbon dioxide and 35% more oxygen than similar plants. It’s also naturally regenerating, so harvesting bamboo still allows the plant to survive. The softness of Bamboo is also unreal.
Along with our fabrics, we source our labels from Canada as well. Our label manufacturer is one of the last remaining in Canada.
We reduce the use of plastic in our manufacturing and packaging process. There is so much unneeded waste in the fashion industry and we do not want to be a company that contributes to that.
