It's never too late to start shopping with a conscience. So we've found all the best stores in Singapore where you can shop eco-friendly fashion for kids.
We’ve said this before, and we’ll say it again: going green is the best thing we can do for Mother Earth. It may not be easy, but we can certainly play our part, from our clothing choices to our consumption of food. Switching to organic food isn’t just sustainable; it’s healthy too! And any leftovers can be put to use at food banks. But, back to the fun stuff: fashion. There are ways to shop for clothes responsibly, such as swapping instead of shopping. But if second-hand shopping just isn’t for you, check out these sustainable clothes for kids in Singapore that are both eco-friendly and fashionable. Don’t forget to also donate old clothes when the kids have grown out of them!

This homegrown brand is all about sustainable clothes for kids in Singapore. It does that via collaborative consumption, which in turn aims to significantly slow down fast fashion. How? When your child has outgrown a Nimbu piece, you can exchange it for the next size up with a discount to boot! This policy is dependent on the condition of the outfit being returned as well as a percentage of the current outfit.

This gorgeous homegrown brand has children at its heart. In the words of the founders: “At Bluealmond, we will always put children first. Here, we bring together clothing choices that will last for multiple lifecycles and are minimalistic and comfortable in design for your little ones to be their true selves. No fire engines, or princesses, just soft-tone coloured prints that are easy to mix and match. Here, we encourage circulating our products amongst siblings, friends and other children to minimise our impact on the environment. We work only with partners who share our beliefs on the environment, quality products and design philosophy.” Sounds amazing to us!
