It’s really easy to get caught up in going green and saving the environment in respect to the big steps like purchasing energy efficient appliances* or hybrid cars. Often though we tend to forget about the little things (or at least I do). I have discovered, though, that by purchasing clothes made from organic materials that I can really do my share as a friend to the earth, as well as enhance my overall health. Every little step or action that we take to make this world a safer and better place to live in is well worth the effort. After all when you think about it we are investing in our family’s future.
For those that have never thought or tried organic clothing here are some great sites that I came across and really liked. Hope you do too.

- Jonäno: I love the motto used by this site — “Look good, Feel good, Do good” — because it really does say it all about organic clothing. Something important to keep in mind with organic clothing is not only is it good for the environment but is good for your overall health as well. Just think of not being exposed to all those chemicals which are commonly found in standard clothing.

This is a great shop for all of your kid’s clothing with a good selection and great styles. Another added bonus about organic clothing is that it is tough and will stand up to what your youngsters are bound to subject it to.
