Used for swaddling and receiving, an extra layer when out and about, or an impromptu sun shade – the Bamboo Viscose Blanket is extremely versatile. Plus, new designs and colors have just made their debut, and the new Spring 2011 Collection of prints from Kicky Pants is fresh and hip!

If you are a fan of Kicky Pants like “Mom,” you will find it hard to walk away with just a blankie for baby!

The creators of Kicky Pants, Nick and Erin Cloke, were kind enough to answer some of “Mom’s” questions about their eco-fabulous line of clothing made from sustainable bamboo for children. Founded in 2007, this line has now expanded to include seasonal pieces as well as their bamboo basics! Check them out online at www.kickypants.com.

Tell us about your eco-inspired company:

Kicky Pants is an infant/toddler and maternity clothing manufacturer utilizing bamboo fabrications and fashion forward designs. We control our process from fabric mill to completion using certified organic bamboo in our milling process. The line includes super soft wearable clothing that allows for a child’s natural movement and comfort. Our prints and designs are inspired by the natural world (trees, flowers and animals), encouraging children to enjoy the beauty around them, while our whimsical take on these themes (unicorns, dragons, leaping frogs) encourages all of us to “celebrate innocence.”

How do you choose to go green in your own life?

In our family recycling is very important, not only for trash, but old toys and clothing as well. We try our best not to be wasteful and to pass along items we are no longer using, or create an art project from them to give them a new life! Also, we noticed the large amounts of trash generated with our children’s lunches, so we have switched to “trash free lunches” with reusable containers for drinks, sandwiches and snacks. Nick was an environmental science major, so he is regularly considering new and different ways we can make a difference in our own lives as well as in our business.

What is your guilty green pleasure?

Organic stone ground chocolate! So good! We get it from our local farmers market. It’s very different from the consistency of regular chocolate, but super yummy!

Can you offer any encouraging words for those with a small sustainable business?

Whenever you make the choice to include the “overall picture” of the world we share when you create something, you are not only serving those around you with a great product, you are also adding something to the way of life in your community. The idea is for “green thinking” to eventually be an expectation that we all have, and not a novelty or a trend. You are on the right path if you go in the direction of sustainability. Let your product speak for itself, and best of luck!
