I am in LOVE with this company, Speesees, which provides fun and stylish children’s things from beautiful kimono onesies to au natural baby hat. Here are the other reasons to love this Eco-conscious and green company.
- It’s manufactured under fair trade practices in India and the owner has developed a close relationship with the farmers who live bio-dynamically and receive health care.
- Everything is made from handpicked organic cotton, and knit and dyed with low impact dyes. All the products are made sweatshop free. “Natural light floods the premises and our energetic team, including disabled members, work decent hours for fair living wages. An organic garden surrounds the premises.”
- They give back to the community by donating $1 to every $100 earned from online retail orders. The company has also implemented a recycling program.
the scoop: when your baby outgrows his/her speesees, if you return the clothing to us, we will donate it on your behalf` to one of several grateful organizations in the area to be used by the children of disadvantaged women.
and the added perk is that you can get a deep discount on your next purchase towards those organic baby yoga pants. (Downward dog has never looked cuter).
The company was founded by Rachel Pearson, a natural cotton diaper baby and a child of environmentally minded parents. Whereas her classmates were raised on wonderbread and fruit rollups; Pearson defied convention with whole wheat bread on recycled wax paper. But the natural upbringing has made Pearson a wildly successful ecotrepreneur, and someone who truly cares about the plights of this Earth.
Let this be an inspiration to raise Eco-minded little babies who grow up to be a compassionate and caring adults who strive to make a difference in this world. Speesees tagline is “We are in this together” We are indeed.
