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.

Did You Know?

  • Asthma has more than doubled in frequency since 1980.
  • Currently, 1 of every 6 American children has a developmental disorder such as ADHD, autism, or dyslexia.
  • 1 in every 110 American children born today is diagnosed with autism.
  • Since the mid-1970s, cancer incidence rates in American children have increased sharply. From 1975-2016, leukemia incidence rates increased by roughly 33%, and incidence rates of brain and other central nervous system cancers have increased 40%. These increases are too rapid to be due to genetic change. They cannot be explained by increased access to medical care or by improvements in diagnosis. 
  • Childhood obesity has more than doubled in the past ten years, and type 2 diabetes, previously unknown among children, has become epidemic.
  • Girls get their first periods today, on average, a few months earlier than girls did 40 years ago, and they develop breasts one to two years earlier.
  • Between 1973 and 1998, breast cancer incidence rates in the United States increased by more than 40 percent. Today, a woman’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is 1 in 8.
  • Scientific evidence is strong and continuing to build that hazardous exposures in the modern environment are important causes of these diseases.
