Organically Grown: 100% Organic Toddler Clothing Review

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.

The Review

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.

The Organic Change


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.

Why Organic?

According to the Organic Exchange, over 456 million pounds of pesticides are applied onto conventional cotton each year, of which seven are on the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of the top ten pesticides which are known, probable, or likely carcinogens. Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, making it healthier for both the environment and the farmers. With products by ORGANICALLY GROWN, there is no need to compromise between your budget and your conscience.




Organically Grown has recently released their new Spring Infant line. Girls can practice their “green” thumb with our Garden Grown collection featuring ladybugs and garden patterns, while boys can get ready for spring in their L is For Lion collection.


Once again......

Can't agree more on the importance of more sustainable clothes and great pics anyway. I was reading this article about a green bra brought to the market by Marks and Spencers in the UK. I love the idea! With the wedding dress speculation for Kate Middleton heating up, a missed opportunity if she doesn't go green (in addition to her white dress) at least with her lingerie. I am sure we will never know these facts but the idea would be lovely!

Credit where credit is due. Found the article here:
