Happy Green Bee Review and Giveaway {closed}




I love organic anything, especially when it comes to children's clothing. The colors are always so nice and the items are so different. I love having Dexter playing with other kids who wear clothing that is always so different from his. Happy Green Bee is no exception. They make the brightest, most stylish, organic kids clothing. I recently was lucky enough to review their reversible hoody in Watermelon/Sky.


Its the hoodie on the left in the picture. I think it looks adorable on Dexter but my husband thinks its a little girly. What does he know anyway!? The hoodie is so soft and comfortable. I adore the bright colors and the wonderful construction. This hoodie will last a long time. It is very durable. Another thing I love is the fact that it is reversible. Say Dexter spills something on his hoodie, all I have to do is turn it inside out and voila, a "new" shirt!

I thought all of you would like to know a little about organic cotton farming and why it is important. I got this information directly from the Happy Green Bee website.
Organic cotton is especially great for infants and children. Whereas pesticide and chemically-treated clothing traps heat and prevents skin from absorbing adequate moisture—often causing rashes and eczema on sensitive skin—organic cotton is natural and breathable. Children with allergies particularly benefit, as organic cotton does not have the residual toxic residues that linger on conventional cotton. Even those without sensitive skin find organic cotton more comfortable and kid-friendly. The longer fibers stretch as children grow.

The best way to support organic cotton farmers is to use your consumer power wisely and support those businesses that make their products sustainable from the farm to the store. For example, Happy Green Bee—a company producing organic cotton playwear for infants and children—creates children's clothing and accessories made with nontoxic dyes and no chemical bleaches or finishers. In addition, Happy Green Bee products are made in fair-trade-certified factories that are monitored for worker health and safety.

Whether shopping for kids clothing, sheets, blankets or personal care products, look for organic fiber products. Your children—our planet's future—will thank you.



The lovely people at Happy Green Bee would love to give away one of their organic tees. Head over to Happy Green Bee and pick out which size and color tee shirt you would like to win. I, myself, purchased one of every color that they had in large since they are such a steal right now! You can't go wrong with $4 for an organic cotton tee! Clearance rocks!
