Feature Articles: The Green Scene

Going organic is so much more than just a good business choice: it’s really a whole-life approach. Manufacturers that only create organic products or utilize low-toxin processes export a safer lifestyle to their customers. Fewer pollutants in the air and contaminants in the land, animals and crops all translate into healthier people and a better world. The fabrics used by Natural Wondies, New Jammies, Lapsaky Organic and Skylar Luna are cuddly, breathable, and kid-friendly. Smart consumers are reaching for the future with organic fabrics that feel great and help form a better world.

Tree Blocks Wooden Toys are quality wooden playthings with character. The collection includes wood tree houses, play furniture, blocks and educational toys that are unique because they look like the wood from which they are created. While some wooden toys are so processed they lose the integrity of their origins, Tree Blocks retain the detail and natural characteristics of the wood. Tree Blocks are eco-friendly and no living tree is harmed in the making of the toys. The only trees used are the discards of managed paper forests.

Parents are seeking and demanding a greater selection of natural, organic products for their children. The essence of the organic and natural movement is purity. Babies and toddlers are extremely susceptible to toxins in their environment, much more so than adults.

Original Baby Company is dedicated to providing original, high-quality children’s products that help meet the demand for a variety of useful organic innovations.

Parents are more conscious than ever about making their child’s life as green and healthy as possible, right from the start. Many more consumers are also determined to do business with companies who support “fair trade,” ensuring that everyone in the supply chain, from the cotton farmers to the pattern cutters and everyone in between will be treated fairly, paid a fair wage and work in a clean environment. A good example of brands that support these environmental and socially responsible virtues are Green Kids and Green Baby.

Homemakers, especially those with children, grandchildren, and other little relations afoot, are diligent about keeping things clean. The urge to sanitize merges with a concern for eco-friendly products that are gentle on people and the planet. Pollutants in the home may not be as obvious as clouds of smoke and smog in the sky, but since there are chemical toxins in homes that impact air supply, it’s smart to use organic products for household cleaning. Educate your customers and become a resource to find these brands that are both organically clean and get the dirty work done: Fields Organics, MomSpit, Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover and Poo-Pourri.
