Around here, spring is finally in the air…which has me scrambling to find warm weather clothes for my kids!Are you ready for spring and summer fashion? Hand-me-downs and second-hand finds are a godsend, but when you need to fill out that wardrobe with new clothes, where do you shop?
Recently, I was fortunate to become accquainted with Organically Grown, a clothing company who believes in offering affordable, safe, stylish, high-quality organic clothing to consumers.* Why was I interested in organic clothing? I was shocked to learn that an estimated 170 million pounds of pesticides and one-quarter of the world’s insecticides are used in the production of conventional, non-organic cotton. These chemicals result in work-force illness, water contamination, and the devastation of farmland.
Organically Grown is part of the solution. Not only are their clothes organic and of high quality, but they’re also recyclable, renewable, and biodegradable. And now, in addition to their infant apparel, they have a new line of toddler clothing! Offered in both boys’ and girls’ sizes 12-24 month and 2T-4T, Organically Grown’s spring and summer collection is comfortable, cute, and completely down to earth (pun intended!). I want my kids wearing clothes they can run and play in, so when I received one of OG’s organic cotton two-piece sets to try out on my 21-month-old nephew, I was happy with its soft feel and durability.
So was he!
My sister (his mom) was especially pleased by the roomy fit: perfect for cloth diaper wearing kids! And with mix-and-match sets, one-piece rompers, and shirts selling for $12-$38, Organically Grown won’t break the bank.
Because no matter how cute the clothes, we all know they’ll be outgrown in no time!
