Organic kids clothes.
Teres Kids Coco Pants (this is not a paid ad by the way, I just want to advertise this great company!)
Some time ago I tried my luck and participated in a giveaway on Teres Kids website. They carry beautiful, simple organic kids' clothes. I won a pair of cocoa brown pants (worth $38!). They came in the mail and they seem like they are very good quality, the fabric is nice and sturdy and of course organic. My four-year old son loves them, they seem to be comfortable and he thinks they are very stylish too :)
They say the pants are for boys but I would use them on girls too, I am not that into the gender specific clothing, I always try to buy unisex looking clothes. I think if I had a girl (which is unlikely since this baby in my belly is a boy too and I think two will be enough for us), I wouldn't dress her in pink unless she started wanting pink herself at some point. I could write a lot more about this gender thing but it wasn't the original purpose of my post so more on that later.
The prices of organic clothes are of course higher than those of supermarket clothes but consider this:
1. Organic clothes are often better quality so they will last better than the cheap ones and you can use them on several kids or even sell them after you are done.
2. They are safe. There are no harmful pesticides or chemicals used that harm the environment and your child.
3. Teres kids organic cotton clothes are sourced and manufactured entirely in the United States, keeping the carbon footprint to a minimum and supporting the local job markets. No cheap (or child) labor so you can feel good about your purchase.
I just wanted to let you know about Teres Kids website and their wonderful organic clothes - and the giveaway! They give something away for one lucky participant once a month.
