 Merino Kids Sustainable Natural

Natural

Merino Kids use 100% natural materials, where possible in all our products and packaging. Our products consist of 100% natural superfine merino, 100% natural organic cotton and YKK zips and domes/poppers. Our packaging is made from 100% cotton organdy fabric and recycled cardboard swing tags.

Renewable

At the core of our philosophy is a commitment to nature’s best materials to make the products which protect the children you care for. Superfine merino wool is naturally grown on merino sheep and is shorn from their backs each year. The merino wool naturally replaces itself as the sheep grows it’s winter coat again. This is a good start on our journey towards sustainability.

Biodegradable

When a natural merino wool fibre is disposed of it takes only one year to decompose. Most synthetics on the other hand, are extremely slow to degrade. Examples below:
1. Wool (merino) - 1 year
2. Paper bag - 1 month
3. Polyester - 20 to 1000 years

Ethical

Ethics are crucial to the operation of Merino Kids as we develop more sustainable business practices. Our business partners must be honest and ethical and, likewise, committed to fair labour practices, so that we can deliver a pure and authentic product to all our customers.
