Happy Green Bee

I know that I try to have my kids eat organic, and use organic products as much as possible, so why shouldn't they wear organic too??

It's getting pretty easy these days to find organic in foods, products and now, with Happy Green Bee its easy to find adorable organic clothing as well!

Happy Green Bee uses organic cotton, which is not only better for our children, animals & the people who make these clothes, but for the environment as well. I learned SO much about the harms of even a basic cotton from HGB, I'm not sure I can have my kids wear anything BUT Happy Green Bee now.

For example, did you know that cotton occupies 3% of the world's farmland, yet it uses 25% of the world's chemical pesticides. Worldwide, 25 to 75 million agricultural workers suffer from acute pesticide poisoning. Yikes!!! That cotton is whats going into my children's pillow case, which they sleep on at night!! Not to mention their clothing, which lays on their body every DAY!

Other than the obvious benefits, whats so great about organic cotton?? What makes it so much different? Organic cotton has softer, longer fibers than regular cotton, so the resulting fabric is softer, thicker, and more durable. I can say this is SO true of HGB products, they have a thick smooth butter soft cotton feel to them. When I first felt them for the first time I thought "Wow, that feels so thick!" but until I read about why it felt so thick, I just assumed it was a double layer!



I am absolutely in love with the new reversible hoodie, from Happy Green Bee. It's brand new to their amazing line of tops & bottoms Not only is this hoodie "just right" when it comes to the thickness, it is SO soft I could just snuggle it ( on or off of a kiddo!) all day long!!! Its the perfect weight for an evening at the beach, or a cover up when the sun starts to go down, yet it'd be warm enough for fall as well! I love LOVE it. Andy actually asked to sleep in it, the first day he wore it, silly goose.
