Hip Clothing for Kids with an Eco-Friendly Twist

This year, send your brood off to school in planet-friendly clothing that is heavy on style yet light on Mother Earth. Wearing the following hip, fashionable items, your little ones will be ready to hit the halls in eco-style this Fall.

Nobis Fall 2011 Collection

Check out these modern, trendy caps and hats for sparking creativity and letting your child express his or her own unique style! Nobis incorporates recycled materials into each design in the Kids’ Mini Collection for the eco-conscious and fashion-forward boy or girl. We think the Lil’ Rachel (pictured) or Lil’ Diego will be simply adorable on your little guy or gal!

Garden Kids

Send your little sweetpea off to school in a comfortable and oh-so-soft Organic Tiered Aqua Dress from Garden Kids. Paired with the Lavender/Natural Striped Shrug, it can be worn as we transition from Summer to Fall with ease, adding a layer if necessary on a cooler morning. No buttons or zippers of any kind, Garden Kids knows what both kids and moms want – comfort, blended with easy on, easy off style!

Garden Kids’ is known for their organic clothing for children, and what makes their items so fabulous is that they are made with 100% organic cotton fabrics that are untreated and made in the USA.

Mom” is also in love with their Organic Pajamas, available in a “long johns” version for the Fall or Winter, and a short-sleeved summer version – all in muted striped colors and made with super-soft organic cotton for extra snuggles and cuddles!

Peri Ponchos

Keep your little one toasty and warm this Fall with the gorgeous, handmade Peri Poncho, now made with EcoFleece! These stylish little capes are made entirely from 2-liter plastic pop bottles. Each handmade poncho is finished with colorful rococo flower trim, or ric rac, pom poms, and a tassle at the top of the hood. They are too, too cute and again, extremely easy to get on and off your child! Simply pull over the head – no sleeves at all!

Mom” can’t get over just how adorable these capes are – they are available in sizes XS (6-12 months) up to XL (8-10 years). The question is, will the designer be making an adult version anytime soon?
