Children grow up fast, despite science's best attempts to weigh them down with apple-filled backpacks and bronze shoes. Accommodate growing kids with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of organic baby clothes from The Green Creation.
The Green Creation's founder, Smitha Prasad, sources organic cotton and low-impact, Azo-free dyes for her collection of baby clothes, which is as gentle on little ones' skin as it is on the environment. Simple pink, blue, or white onesie bodysuits ($13.99) adorn infant torsos or very large potatoes with earthy messages, such as "Hip in Organics" or "Happy Camper," and brightly colored Flexi pants ($14) keep legs cozy. Soft, reversible unisex hoodies ($39) zip up to keep little boys and girls toasty, and lightweight terry-cloth robes ($32) boast long sleeves and an exclusive sunshine or circle print on the hood.
The Green Creation
The Green Creation's founder, Smitha Prasad, fashions soft, comfy clothes for kids using GOTS-certified organic cotton tinged with colorful, nontoxic dyes free of azo compounds and other irritants. Each hoodie, onesie, bib, and dress cloaks little ones in hip, stylish cuts of cloth sourced from fair-trade farms and grown without the aid of harmful pesticides, an eco-friendly recipe that makes the wearer more likely to attract lots of hip, stylish flora and fauna. Retro floral prints and other exclusive designs decorate the apparel, whose soft fabric and mostly tagless construction reduce discomfort. Husks of paddy rice generate electricity for each garment's manufacture; all excess materials are recycled.
