Are you Going Green with Organic Clothing?With all the concerns of toxins that surround our children with household cleaners, toys, and foods we should also add clothing to that list! Conventionally grown cotton occupies only three percent of the world's farmland, but uses 25 percent of the world's chemical insecticides, including Parathion, which is at least 30 times more toxic than DDT! Cotton clothing retains harmful toxic residues, often causing rashes and eczema on sensitive skin. Makes you want to go to all organic clothing doesn't it?? Be happy to know Happy Green Bee makes a beautiful selection of organic clothing for your children!
Who is Happy Green Bee?
Happy Green Bee was founded by Roxanne Quimby after selling her multimillion dollar company, Burt's Bees, which I'm sure everyone is familiar with. With the proceeds of the sale Roxanne funded two foundations. The first awards grants to nonprofit organizations in support of the environment and the arts and the second, an operating foundation, owns and maintains 70,000 acres of wilderness in the North woods of Maine. Roxanne is also the cofounder of Maine Woods Forever, a heritage conservation organization dedicated to preserving the spirit and landscape of Maine Woods. Roxanne began Happy Green Bee after seeing the need of bringing about awareness to the importance of organic clothing for children. I love the Happy Green Bee philosophy:
"We created Happy Green Bee so that a child can be a child, first and foremost," Quimby explains. "By using organic cotton, a comfortable and practical fabric, and simple bee-striped patterns, children feel as comfortable as they look while their parents take a small step in making a big difference in the environment their children live in."Ethan's Happy Green Bee Experience!
Ethan received the Raddish & Bean Cardigan. First off, I love the bright red and green color! I always think of organic clothing as being very subdued coloring and Happy Green Bee has forever changed my thinking about organic clothing. The cardigan is super soft and stretchy. The cardigan is very well made and will hold up to an active toddler. Ethan appeared to be very "Happy" in his new Happy Green Bee Cardigan! Check out all the other cute pieces on their website. I'm wishing I had a little girl because the petal dress is SO adorable! I look forward to adding more Happy Green Bee pieces to Ethan's wardrobe.
