I love organic cotton clothes and linens! My favorite set of sheets are made of organic cotton and I just love the way they feel on my skin. Organic cotton is safe to wear and free of toxins found in regular cotton harvest. Happy Green Bee sells a wonderful selection of baby and kids organic clothing and at a reasonable price. Make sure you check out their factory store online where they have discounted their outfits even more! I recently was able to try out an outfit from Happy Green Bee, an organic kids clothing line, the pumpkin/butterscotch skort and radish bean shirt (shown below). This outfit is so adorable and colorful. The colors are so vibrant and I haven't found them to fade with washing. The soft stretching and gender-free colors and outfits are wonderful and make excellent gifts. I love the chemise top with legging and the matching blanket!
You may be asking, " What is so special about organic clothing?" Well here's the skinny of it. "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! " If you've read any of my previous posts on chemical exposures you'd remember the risks involved with long term exposure to such toxic chemicals can lead to increased risks of certain cancers and birth defects. Pesticide and chemically-treated clothing traps heat and prevents skin from absorbing adequate moisture often causing rashes and eczema on sensitive skin. Whereas, organic cotton is natural and breathable. Children with allergies particularly benefit, as organic cotton does not have the residual toxic residues that linger on conventional cotton. Organic cotton is grown in soil free of herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers which in turn is healthier for us and the planet.
Happy Green Bee is dedicated to creating "cheerful gender-free organic kids clothing with sustainable earth friendly manufacturing practices in an effort to meet and increase the demand for organic children's clothing that not only looks and feels great but is contributing in positive ways to the welfare of our planet."
