Winter is upon us and, for eco-savvy parents, the frigid weather can bring a host of nightmares when it comes to outfitting your kids for the cold. Finding sustainably made, cruelty-free children’s gear can be a real challenge—and it’s not just you. We scoured the web in search of a selection of coats we could feel good about, and came up practically empty-handed. After much flexing of Google-fu, we only found one jacket that met our criteria: Patagonia’s Baby Nano Puff Jacket, the pint-sized version of one of their best-selling adult models. Patagonia has a long history of environmental stewardship, and their products are high in quality and durability. The Baby Nano Puff sports the same wind- and water-resistant shell to keep out the elements. Your little ones will stay warm and toasty, wrapped in the lightweight insulation made from synthetic materials, rather than animal products. Rest easy knowing that Patagonia operates under its own strict code of corporate responsibility, which extends through the supply chain to the factories around the world where their clothing items are made. Available in sizes 3-6 months to 5T and in bright colors ranging from aqua stone to campfire orange, this jacket is a great find — but we’re baffled as to why there aren’t more coats on the market that are designed to sustain the world our children will inherit.
