Here at Playtime & Kid’s Hub, we value sustainable kid’s brands that make their collections kind to people and the planet. As members of the kids’ fashion and lifestyle community, it’s important for all of us to do our part to preserve the beauty and resources of our planet for generations to come. Children themselves have been raising some of the strongest voices in activism. From Greta Thunberg to new voices in the United States, kids and teens around the world are speaking out against the misuse of our planet.

Either exhibiting at Playtime Paris, Playtime & Kid’s Hub New York, and/or selling their collections year-round on our B2B ordering platform, Orderwizz, these brands stand out in our community with their sustainable initiatives. From upcycling fabrics to empowering messages, Oeko-Tex and GOTS certified materials to B-Corp certified labels, using innovative textiles, and collaborating with charities, these are just a few of the brands leading the way to a more sustainable future.
