Why use organic cotton?

It all goes back to why we started Island Picnic in the first place — for our family’s health. Organic cotton is pure and harmless. It’s free of chemicals, pesticides and toxins that have been linked to allergies, asthma, ADHD, cancers and more. That’s why each and every item we offer is handmade entirely from 100% certified organic cotton, inside and out. From the insulation for our lunch bags to the stuffing in our comforters and pillows — it’s all organic cotton, and it’s all safe for you and your family.
