Maggie's Organics Review

How could I not love Maggie's Organics? After all, I am a Maggie and I love being green! Maggie's Organics is located in Ypsilanti, Michigan and seeing as though I also live in Michigan, this is a relationship that was meant to be! Pure kismet. I am very passionate about helping to put Michigan back on the map. Michigan's economy is suffering and helping local businesses to flourish in turn helps our wonderful state!

Enough about that! Let me tell you a little about Maggie's Organics....Maggie's Organics was founded in 1992 on the premise that all workers could be treated ethically and that clothing could be functional, beautiful and affordable and also constructed of environmentally sustainable materials. Seventeen years later, we are proud to say that our proposition has proven true: Our line of organic and fair trade socks, scarves, tights, loungewear, legwarmers, tees, baby clothes, new stuffed animals and fashionable tops continues to fulfill and strengthen our founding principles:

• All of our products are constructed using Certified Organic Cotton or Certified Organic Wool as their main component. * We add in other fibers only when they improve the longevity, durability, and performance of our garments. All components used are fully disclosed on every product label, down to 1/10 of 1%.
• Conscious of energy consumed by transporting products across the globe, we develop supply chains as close to home as possible. * We use minimal packaging, knowing that our products' feel and quality speak for themselves.
• We work exclusively with business partners who guarantee livable working conditions and independence for their workers. Much of our manufacturing is done in countries with strong labor laws, like Costa Rica and the US. Alternately, when we produce in countries with poor labor and environmental laws, we either find or create worker-owned cooperatives to assure that workers have independence and control.

There are so many nice items at Maggie's that you can choose from. They carry items for babies and women. I was lucky enough to be able to review their lounge set. I chose the Live, Laugh, Love set.

CONTENTS: 100% Certified Organic Cotton

A beautiful Printed Bliss Camisole and Lounge Pants make the perfect "Lounge Set"! Choose different combinations of colors. Makes a great gift. (Size choices = same size camisole and pants. Please see the size chart above for reference.)

Made with 100% Certified Organic Cotton. These Lounge Sets are great for yoga, lounging around the house or running errands on the weekend! "Pull on" elastic waist pants. Made in Costa Rica or at the co-op in Nicaragua.

They are now on sale for $20!!!! You certainly can't beat that for 100% Organic PJs!

I am sitting in my new jammies now and I am very tempted to buy several more sets. They are soft and they have a nice relaxing fit. The colors are so vibrant and happy. Its hard not to love this set.

This would make the most perfect eco-friendly Mother's Day gift! Head over to Maggie's and order a set for yourself and your Mom today, she will think you spent WAAAY more than $20 on her this year!
