Are children who grow up in used clothes really healthier? There are many reasons for parents to buy the clothes of their dear little 2nd hand. Not only the savings of many thousand euros in the infant and toddler years are one reason, but increasingly enters the health of the offspring in the foreground with parents. Allergies is the bogeyman. Every 4th child in Germany should be already affected. Galvanized by the media, perhaps even terrified by their own experiences in the circle of friends, moms and dads are always begun and more alert against toxic substances in children’s clothing. Jutta Boeck, owner of the children thrift chain Bullerbu in Berlin and mother of 4 children, took this theme as an opportunity to establish their first second-hand shop 5 years ago. Today she sell healthy 4 branches”clothing. Tests showed that children are less prone to allergies in used clothes, long.
The reasons for this phenomenon are clearly obvious. There are always more pesticides used for pest control. Toxic dyes and plasticizers (such as so-called stop Socks) are part of the range of poison in the clothes. Secondhand clothes are usually long completely washed out and when MOM washes the laundry in the future even without fabric softener, child can enjoy a much healthier skin. The 2nd hand stuff are dimensionally stable and no longer, is another advantage. Bullerbu wants healthy children and planning just the initiative: “Non-toxic clothing for Berlin Brats”. Looking for this woman Boeck seeks more cooperation with doctors and parents groups. J.M.
