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?

It may almost be March, but cold & flu season is not over just yet! Keeping little hands from touching runny noses is Sniffle Buddies – ingenious little cuffs that can be worn to tend to itches, sniffles, and tickles. These ultra-soft, washable wristbands teach young children “mindful” wiping by keeping germ-ridden hands away from their noses, eyes and mouths. Rather than running after your tot during playtime with a tissue to catch every drip and drop, you can redirect their hands and sleeves by having them wear one of these extremely handy wristbands.

Made in the USA of eco-friendly bamboo & organic cotton, Sniffle Buddies reduce paper waste and as they say, “help to lighten the load of our landfills one sniffle at a time!” This is such a smart idea – “Mom” loves that she can send her daughter off to play with ease, knowing that she is not constantly wiping her nose with the back of her hand when she has the sniffles. In addition to being used for colds and allergies, Sniffle Buddies can be used by those with Special Needs to tend to drool, or they can be used as a sweatband for biking, hiking, running, or skiing.

Sniffle Buddies are available in both children’s and adult’s sizes in a wide variety of colors, as well as a dye-free, natural wristband for those with extra sensitivities. To order, visit www.snifflebuddies.com.

Canopy Verde’s earth-friendly bags simply beam with personality. What sets the collection apart from the rest is the skillful attention to details. The line is made with fine stitching, solid construction, functional design and a unique touch of whimsy.

The creator of Canopy Verde, Linda Wong, grew up in China and had learned the value of a “waste not” mentality early in life. The entire Canopy Verde series is made using organic cotton, chrome-free leather, OEKO-TEX 100 certified dyes, and chemical-free embroidery. Thinking globally, the company encourages Chinese manufacturers to embrace an environmentally friendly approach.

It’s easy to see why the fashion world has taken notice of Canopy Verde’s line. From clutches to duffels and totes to weekenders, the line has everything that a style conscious enthusiast would look for. The bag collections were inspired by flowers and include fun names like “Juniper”, “Freesia”, “Dandelion” and “Dewberry”. Just in time for fall, the entire collection is viewable from www.canopyverde.com.
