A little boy standing in a forest holding something in his hand.Lead by example for the next generation of treehuggers by supporting brands that make and sell sustainable children’s clothing!

Being eco-conscious is never more important than when it comes to clothing, toys and care items for babies and children. Our babies and kids need to be protected from the chemicals often found in non-green products. And the people of the world need to be protected from fast fashion brands with unethical manufacturing practices.

Our littles also need to see us supporting eco kidswear, baby items and toy brands – so they’ll follow our example and shop green when they get older!

I’ve divided this page (which is just one of many pages in my sustainable product directory) into four sections. Feel free to skip ahead to the section you’re most interested in, or keep reading to learn more about my personal favourite brands that make super cute and well-made sustainable children’s clothes.

Note that the Of Houses and Trees product directory contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on a link and make a purchase a small percentage of the sale goes to yours truly. Thank you for your support!
