I don’t know about you but with Earth Day approaching, we’re slowly taking a look at we’ve done to help Mother Earth lately. Sure we recycle and say “no” to plastic bags but it always feels like there is more we should be doing. One of those things is supporting companies that actually are doing their part in helping make less of an impact on the environment with their eco-friendly practices. So what better way to do that then wear it? My thoughts exactly. Here’s a round-up of some of our favorite eco-friendly fashions for babies and kids because truthfully, it’s always fashionable to be “green!”
Sama Baby makes clothes for babies and kids sized newborn to 6 and is completely eco-friendly and organic in their fabrics and packaging. This dress is perfect for a sunny spring day!
I don’t think it gets any better than Toms Shoes. Perfect for spring and summer, these shoes are more than just eco-friendly — they also give a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased. Don’t forget to look at the styles for yourself too!
Babysoy is a collection that is made using soybean protein fibers to create a comfortable, adorable wardrobe for baby. They recently partnered with Jane Goodall to create The Janey Baby Collection by Jane Goodall. Proceeds from the sale of that collection goes to support The Jane Goodall Institute which supports habitats, communities and animals around the world.
If you love unique pieces, then Chabuki is the place for you to be looking. Using all recycled and upcycled materials and scraps, they piece together one-of-a-kind dresses, onesies, shirts, pants and skirts to make some of the best eco-friendly fashions I’ve seen (and I’ve seen a lot). Check their site often for new designs as they usually only make one of each style.
Acme Prints uses 100 percent organic cotton and eco-friendly water based inks to make all their whimsical screen print tees and clothing. I love the simple, yet bold designs that are very gender neutral so you can pass them down from child to child — remember it’s eco-friendly to upcycle your clothing!
While most of the clothing featured here isn’t exactly Target prices, you can know that paying a little bit more for quality clothing will get you a better product and also know that they’re doing the best they can to save the environment a little bit at a time. What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day with your kids?
