Will Happy Green Bee Clothing make you irresistible to animals?
Perhaps not, but it's a tough call. Happy Green Bee is a wonderful new company started by Roxanne Quimby, who along with her partner, also began Burt's Bees in 1989. Now, she's moved on to designing beautiful organic clothes for babies and children. Her clothes are made with cotton untreated by pesticides, toxic dyes, or chemical bleaches. And why is that important? 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.
Happy Green Bee creates clothes that are bright, fun, and ecologically responsible, which makes the animals and my daughter very happy. We were lucky enough to try these adorable tights you see her wearing in watermelon and sky and oh my were they a hit! They are wonderfully made with nice thick fibers, terrific stretch, and durability. And this was a day of crouching, kneeling, and horseback riding. The tights wore like a glove and looked fabulous at the end of the day. I only wish I could have a pair in every color combination they come in, not to mention dress, cardigan, leggings, skort... well you get the point. Happy Green Bee, you have my address. And lucky for you, they can have yours too because these lovely folks are offering a pair of tights for your little one to try too. Just follow the directions and you're on the way to a very stylish, very Green, little girl.
