Although as she gets older it's harder and harder, I do my best to buy Avi as much of her gear from eco-friendly materials. When she was an infant, her closet was filled exclusively with organic cotton clothing, but unfortunately as they grow, there's less and less of a selection. So I do my best and am always pleased with myself when she's dressed to impress.
Here she's wearing a faux fur jacket from the Gap (which I try to avoid when I can, but for jackets and the such they're really the best), organic cotton leggings from H&M, and a hat from American Apparel made from recycled cotton (just like mine!).
- Cuts down on water waste by using fabric that is already dyed
- Reduces landfill use by reprocessing pre-consumer textile waste
- Manufacturing process reduces energy and resource use
Now that's some hat!
She's even carrying around a tea cup made from Green Toys (an eco-friendly toy company)!
Hope you're all staying as warm as Avi during this supercold winter!
