Chemical-free Kids

Chemical-free Kids

By HK Magazine (updated on 20 May 2016)

The trend for caring about the origin of the products you surround your children with is sweeping across the globe. Here’s a round-up of some of the best places in Hong Kong to source all-natural, chemical-free products for your kids.

Funny Paper

Let your kids unleash their creative side with the recycled cardboard creations from Funny Paper. You can buy play houses and then make it a family project to assemble and decorate them. It’ll help your tykes learn about construction, space, structure— and of course, environmental awareness.

Lots of Love for Kids: 30B Victory Avenue, Ho Man Tin

Mother Organic

If you want your kid to have a totally chemical-free lifestyle, make Mother Organic your first port of call. This online shop (though it does have a retail space) offers just about everything you can think of for tots and tykes, including mattresses, bedding, disposable diapers, household cleaners, shampoo and body wash, teething rings, and of course, clothes. On the food front, you’ll find BPA-, phthalate- and PVC-free drinking bottles and utensils, organic cereal, purée, formula and snacks.

Natures Purest

This UK brand is all about being—you guessed it—”natural” and “pure.” Think 100 percent organic undyed cotton, manufactured to the highest ethical and quality standards. In addition to baby basics such as onesies, rompers and pajamas, it also has baby sleeping bags, cardigans, jackets, hats and booties, towels and bedding. There are also adorable soft toys, blocks and stacking rings, and nursery furniture, too. As it’s undyed, it’s all in various shades of cream and beige, but it is all rather lovely.

Address: L2-33, Festival Walk, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong

Organic Baby

With multiple stores throughout Hong Kong, Organic Baby is one of the city’s biggest purveyors of organic clothing for tots. Fortunately, “organic” doesn’t mean “boring” here, and there are tons of trendy designs for day-to-day, plus hilarious outfits for dress-up (a yellow Bruce Lee jumpsuit with a matching nunchuk-print bib? Yes please!) that’ll please parents and baby alike. Beyond baby clothes and blankets, you’ll also find eco-friendly reusable lunch sacks and bags from Keep Leaf, organic cuddly toys, furniture and gifts.

Address: Shop 220, 2/F, Windsor House, 311 Gloucester Rd., Causeway Bay

For something organic AND made in Hong Kong, look no further than Qncy. Founder Emily Lai formed the brand after the birth of her daughter and uses her family’s garment factory, in operation since 1940, to run up a selection of cute, eco-friendly and organic toys and clothes. It even offers a personalization service, should you feel the urge for a monogrammed onesie. Visit the showroom for a closer look at the products.

Tree Children’s Lodge

Sharon, the owner of Tree Children’s Lodge, has put together an emporium of classic children’s toys that are all-natural, with selections for everyone, from newborns to bigger kids. Many are made from sustainably sourced wood, others are hand-made. There are also natural craft supplies, such as wool, fabric and beeswax. Some of the soft toys have been made by social enterprises in places such as Peru and the Himalayas, so you’re also doing good for the planet with your purchase. Online ordering is available.
