What Does "Sprout Approved" Mean & Why is it Important?

There are thousands of untested and unregulated chemicals in everyday products. Many of these are known to be carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, or to have other negative health impacts. Some are banned (in very specific products), most are not. There is no guaranteed safe minimum exposure, and no research into the effects of compounded exposures. By choosing organic, natural fibers and reducing the toxins in your home whenever possible, you will go a long way to reducing your family's everyday exposure.

"Sprout Approved" means no toxic chemicals. That includes the big ones you’ve heard about like BPA, BPS, phthalates, toxic dyes, perfumes, pesticides, PVC, and formaldehyde—as well as many you haven’t heard of yet.

Our curated selection includes every item you need while also ensuring your home is as healthy as it can be.
