When it comes to making eco-friendly choices at home, we so often have the best intentions but so little time to do the research. That's why we were thrilled to learn about Little Lentil Clothing, a brand founded by a mom who's been there and wanted a thoughtful clothing solution that was better for babies AND the earth AND parents.

Here are 5 reasons why we absolutely love this nature-inspired baby clothing company, plus one very sweet deal. (Use Motherly15 for 15% off your order—exclusively for Motherly mamas.)

1. They use 100% organic cotton

As you might have guessed, all of Little Lentil's clothing is made of 100% G.O.T.S. certified organic cotton, the world's leading textile processing standard for organic cotton throughout all stages of the supply chain.

This means that not only is this cotton healthier for the earth, and the people who grow and harvest the cotton, but it's also free of the harmful chemicals and residues that we're anxious to keep away from our baby's sweet skin.

2. Their products are a beautiful reflection of nature

All of Little Lentil's prints are artisan-designed and nature-inspired, honoring the connection that all parents and children have with nature. We love the unique designs that feature beautiful hues taken from the world around us and patterns from ferns to trees to animal life.

These are some of our favorites from their line 

3. They offer a recycling program 

With a commitment to offering not only clothes but responsible sustainability initiatives, Little Lentil offers 15% off when you purchase new clothes and participate in their Send-Back Program.

When your little one has outgrown their clothing, send it back and the brand will ensure they are either reused or responsibly recycled so you're not sending one more onesie to a landfill. That sounds like smart shopping to us.

4. You can buy clothes pre-loved

Founder, Katie Mcnamara, is committed to ensuring that all the clothes purchased at Little Lentil have their most useful lives possible. Through the Loved Again Program, you can purchase pre-loved clothing at up to half the price of brand new clothes.

Incredibly, they still have the same super soft, high-quality as the new versions. And the best news yet, moms can save money and cut down on textile waste in the process.

5. They put eco-friendly values into practice every day. 

Little Lentil Clothing practices what they preach. They purchase renewable energy credits to offset 100% of their operational and shipping footprint. All of their packaging is made from 100% reusable, recyclable or biodegradable materials. As members of 1% for the Planet, they also donate a portion of their sales to environmental initiatives. 🙌

From their timeless designs to their Loved Again program, this is one brand that goes all in to leave the world a little bit better for *all* of our babies.

Try this: Write down your name and those of your parents and then your children. Then locate each letter of each name on the keyboard and note if it is located on the left or right side (use T, G and B as the middle line).

There should be more left-side letters in yours and your parents' names and more right-side letters in each of your children's names. Weird, huh? That's what some scientists thought, too, so they set out to determine why and discovered a similar pattern across five languages.
