An addition to the family is always cause to celebrate, and Georgia-based CRADLE&THREAD (located in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur) offers a chic way to keep your baby in style while being kind to the environment. All pieces in the collection — bodysuits, beanie caps, bibs, sweaters, pants, blankets and burp cloths — are made of 100-percent biodegradable cotton, and organic items are completely free of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. Additionally, to reduce its carbon footprint, the company uses U.S.-sourced cotton and minimal packaging for its products. One of Cradle&Thread’s main goals, though, is to make products that last and can be used over and over again. “We make super-high-quality clothing that doesn’t wear out and end up in a landfill quickly,” says Jarrett Helms, who founded the company with his wife, ­Christina. “In fact, we encourage our customers to pass along their Cradle&Thread clothing once they’re done with it.” Plus, with the store’s Giving Sewn In program, for every $100 of baby apparel sold, the company will give a full outfit of clothes, called a ThreadBox, to little ones in need. Every purchase, no matter how small, counts by creating crowdsourced generosity. www.cradleandthread.com
