How to choose sustainable bibs
When it comes down to bibs, there are two material routes to go: natural vs. synthetic. With natural materials (aka cotton) come significant water usage to cultivate the crop. With synthetic materials (aka polyester and silicone) come petroleum extraction. Neither is great for the planet, but if we had to recommend one material over another, we suggest organic cotton or silicone bibs. If you opt for cotton, make sure it’s GOTS or OEKO-TEX certified, and if you opt for silicone, make sure it’s high-grade.
The highest scoring bibs
Silicone is an abundant, durable material that doesn't break down into microplastics. However, it can be mixed with plastics. Look for high-grade (or medical-grade) silicone to avoid this.
