Our story starts back in 2008 when I was researching what on earth was causing so many kids these days, like my daughter Jillian, to have severe food allergies, eczema and asthma (not to mention ADHD and Autism, which are also on the rise). The evidence seemed clear – we have so many chemicals, toxins, pesticides in our world these days that simply were not there a couple generations ago. Of course, there’s no cure for these illnesses yet, but there was an idea for how to help prevent them.
Clean out your environment.
Eat more organic foods, without added hormones and pesticides. Fill your home with pure and natural, chemical-free goods, like glass containers instead of plastic, and organic cotton fabrics.
“We can do that,” we thought!
And so we did. And what we noticed, while trying to make our own home greener, was that there was a SERIOUS need for some good-lookin’ organic products! Boring beiges and greens be gone! We set out on a mission to add color and life to the world of organic products.
And that’s what Mom and I have been doing ever since, and we couldn’t be more proud of our company.
To keep things as healthy and pure as possible, we have only ever used (and will continue to only use) 100% certified organic cotton fabrics. Luckily, organic fabrics are becoming more popular, and in the past couple years we have found some absolutely wonderful colors and prints to work with. Our trims and embellishments are also 100% organic cotton, as well as the insulation in our lunch bags and the stuffing in our pillows and comforters.
We have a strong desire to keep our company as truly green and healthy for you, and for the earth, as possible.
