For those of you who know me......or those of you who follow my blog and know me enough....know that I LOVE organics. From food to clothing, I do what I can to benefit the health of my family.
I recently was introduced to a great new company called Organically Grown. This company is devoted to providing organic cotton clothing, bedding and eco-friendly household decor that would make any eco-loving family proud.
They were kind enough to send me an 18 month 100% organic shirt / short combo for Noah from their new infant and toddler organic cotton line. Not only is the fabric super soft, but look how cute the outfit is! The outfit fit Noah great, handled well in the wash and received numerous comments while we were out and about with the clever lines on the front "Handle with Care" featuring the Earth surrounded by the recycle arrows. Cute and clever!
I also liked the two button closure on the back of the shirt, as well as how well the outfit held up to the rough and tumble of a 16 month old little boy!
What's even better is that their prices are incredible, considering that it is a 100% Organic Cotton line! Even if not for yourself or your children, what a great way to support the cause while buying for others!
Organically grown as a heartfelt commitment to a healthy planet!
The Organic Revolution
Organically Grown is proud to play an active role in the organic revolution. Their apparel is made from 100% organic cotton, which is grown using safe, pesticide-free methods from plants that are not genetically modified. They support the organic farming community and organizations worldwide that are committed to a green, sustainable environment.
There is a direct connection between what we wear and the effect it has on the earth. According to the Organic Exchange, an estimated 170 million pounds of pesticides, and 25% of the world's insecticides are used in the production of conventional, non-organic cotton. 7 out of 10 of these pesticides are on the EPA's "known" list of "likely" or "probable" carcinogens. These chemicals result in work-force illnesses, water contamination, and the devastation of farmland. All of the problems are eliminated though organic farming practices. Organically Grown is proud to be a part of the solution.
The Organic Difference
Organically Grown acts as an educational collective. They sponsor fund-raising events and through the media, teach consumers about the benefits of living an organic lifestyle.
Organically Grown supports and sponsors organizations that plant trees in urban settings; promote water conservation; convert conventional cotton fields to organic cotton fields; and reduce the pollution of Southern California’s coastal waters.
