I love discovering new companies that feature eco-friendly clothing for kids, and the market for green children’s gear is growing in both supply and demand. I recently was led to Toby and Rei: eco friendly clothes + accessories for you and baby. This Massachusetts based company, founded by designers Alanna Mallon and Kate Browning, features adorable t-shirts and lunch bags made from organically grown cotton, among many other green products for your child.
100% Organic Kids Graphic Tee
The elephant graphic tee is my favorite shirt! I’ve always had an affinity for elephants. The elephant tee is hand sketched and printed on American Apparel’s 100% organic cotton t-shirt. These sweatshop free shirts made in LA are then dyed at Red Fish-Blue Fish Dyeworks in NH “in the most environmentally friendly way possible without harsh fixing agents or formaldehyde.” This is a hip green tee for your child!
100% Organic Kids Lunch Bag
I also like the robot 100% organic lunch bag sold by Toby and Rei. This is a great bag to use for play or lunch, and it reminds me of the Natural, Organic Lunch Bag I reviewed last year, but this one is way cooler. These robots would make any kid think it was want to take a home lunch to school, and you definitely don’t have to worry about lead in these lunch boxes.
Toby and Rei combine organic, sustainable materials with great design.
as fashion designers, we are aware of the impact that standard growing and harvesting practices have on our natural environment, and want to provide an alternative to concerned consumers. as young mothers, we want to leave a positive legacy for our own children and the planet that they will inhabit.
The prices are reasonable, and the quality is high. Toby and Rei also make a super soft bamboo fleece and organic cotton baby blanket, and the tag is embedded with wildflower seeds, so you can plant it!
