Green is gorgeous! mini mioche review and giveaway

I've tried to "green" many areas of my life, especially where my children are concerned. We eat many organic foods, have used cloth, hybrid, and eco-friendly disposable diapers, made our own baby food, and we do what we can in our daily living to consume less and reuse.

However - organic clothing just seemed too "something." Too expensive, too limiting, too "crunchy" or un-cute. I don't know. I've just never been able to go there.

So I really admire the efforts of mini mioche founder, Alyssa Kerbel. When she had her first daughter, she realized how difficult it was to find great stylish, comfortable and affordable fashion for her little one without the often tacky traditional colors and patterns. She also wanted to find an alternative to the negative environmental footprint left by traditional clothing manufacturing. Mini mioche was created out of these ideals.

The premise for mini mioche is simple:

Amazing basics and fashion styles
The absolute softest organic cotton
Great fitting products
Interesting and difficult to find colors (no pastels!)

Each baby and toddler clothing piece from mini mioche (pronounced “Mee-osh," meaning "little one") is designed and made in Toronto, Canada, from 100% organic cotton and reusable dyes.

The company uses 100% recycled paper in its hang tags and catalogs, and eliminates unnecessary packaging by shipping online orders in reusable organic cotton drawstring bags.

It makes me so happy to know that there's an option with fashionable organic cotton clothing that doesn't break the bank! It's the sort of style I'd wear (if it came in my size, that is) and I can feel really good about putting this soft and safe, organic cotton next to my little ones' skin. I absolutely love the bold colors!
