In recognition and celebration of this week’s Earth Day on April 22, Twirls & Twigs Creative Director/Founder Shawna Dalton talked with The Giggle Guide® about her passion for green living, children’s fashion, color, and the balance of nature, business, and her family. Dalton says, “I was one of those girls who always wanted to be a fashion designer. I studied design from age 16, when I drove to my first summer session at Otis/Parsons. It was love at first sketch for me. Design made my soul sing!” And she has been following the beat of a different drummer and singing the praises of her chosen career path ever since.

Most Americans have felt the bumps and bruises from the rocky economic road of recent times. In an effort to stimulate job growth in the United States, many consumers are purchasing and getting reacquainted with American-made goods. They’re beginning to understand that the investment they make in domestic products pays off with durability, aesthetic value, and consistent quality. They’re also rediscovering the pioneering American spirit that is evident in the creative and inspired designs of items crafted in the U.S.A., such as these from IMAGINE GreenWear, LuvStuff, Nano Baby, and 32 Degrees

Somewhere in the way-back machine there’s a song that tells us to “accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and latch on to the affirmative.” Today, The Giggle Guide® spotlights four manufacturers whose ever-so-marketable children’s products inspire optimism by encouraging good habits and positive self expression: Compendium, Inc., Shains, Journal Buddies, and Iscream. From colorful thank-you cards and message stickers to customizable jewelry and journals, these companies offer a multitude of upbeat avenues for kids to express themselves and spread good cheer!

What’s one of the fastest-growing sectors in the children’s market today? Organics! Not only do organic products hold the promise of being toxin-free, but they also make our world a better place to live. While some buy organic products for their environmental impact, the vast majority of families do it to protect the most innocent — their children. Concerned parents take great pains to ensure that the environment for their kids is as clean as possible. Unfortunately, most household cleaners are brimming with harmful chemicals. Enter BabyGanics, the brainchild of Kevin and Keith, two fathers on the cutting-edge of organic cleaning products.

“I’m me and you’re not!” is the resounding teenager’s anthem. One way tweens and teens play up their sense of individuality is to wear a temporary tattoo — or several. Tattoos are a fun way to stand out and “speak out with ink art.” However, real tattoos are an adult decision, expensive, difficult to remove and can lead to an allergic reaction or scarring. The alternative that’s sweeping the land is temporary tattoos: a mega hit with tweens, teens and even younger kids. There are lots of harmless options from several suppliers, including Fan Stamp, All That Glitters, Fun Tats for Kids and Savvi.
