Greenpeace recently released a disturbing report, " Little Monsters " which reveals that many major children's clothing and footwear brands are laden with toxins. As Greenpeace shines a light on the real "monsters" lurking in our little one's closets: their clothing, we certainly don't want to dress our kids in a wardrobe that contains harmful chemicals. Read about this eye-opening report in-depth on Inhabitots to learn about the companies, from Burberry and Disney to the Gap and American Apparel, that use toxic substances in their manufacturing.
