Simply scan through the TV channels and you are bound to come across a news show or commercial touting the benefits of organic food. How about organic clothing?
Many companies are now offering organic clothing options. But some take it further than others. I am so impressed with a company called EDUN.
EDUN’s mission is to drive sustainable employment in developing economies. The company was founded in 2005 by Ali Hewson and Bono. Their socially conscious clothing company uses organic materials whenever possible. From the African sourced cotton, to the spinning and knitting process, all the way to the manufacturer, edun Live’s t-shirts are 100% African. The end result is a superior product whose very production provides sustainable employment, business and trade opportunities for the impoverished in sub-Saharan Africa.
Edun Live offers reasonably priced mens (#M7001), womens (W7002), youth (K7003) and even toddler (K7000) sized t-shirts.
Examples of other brands that include t-shirts as well as other options include Anvil, Bella, LAT Sportswear and Rabbit Skins. Below is a list of a few of the organic items that you will find at Shoppers Rule:
Bella has a variety of items, from an organic baby creeper (#104B), to ladies’ tanks (#4020B), and t-shirts (#6020). LAT Sportswear offers short and long sleeve t-shirts (#2080 & 2088). Anvil has adult and youth organic t-shirts (#420, 428, and 420B). Rabbit Skins offers infant and toddler items (RS2000, RS2001, & RS2004).
Choosing organic food and clothing is a great way to help keep both our bodies and our earth healthy.
I love making gifts for Christmas. At the moment, I am finishing up a 2009 calendar inspired by the Calendar Kids book (#MB809) by Marcia L. Layton. Using the hands and feet of my son and his second grade classmates, we have created a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift for the teacher.
However, the calendar has taken a bit longer than I planned. And there is still my daughter’s teacher, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-laws to think about….. I need some fast and easy ideas.
Hey, wait! There is a “Fast, Fun & Easy” book series from C&T Publishing. There are over a dozen books. I’ve listed a few of them below.
Fast, Fun, & Easy Fabric Bowls (#CT10349) – this one is on my bookshelf – I’ve just decided that my daughter’s teacher is getting a bowl filled with fruit and nuts.
Incredible Thread-A-Bowls (#CT-FFEITB)
Fabric Boxes (CT-FFEBOX)
Creative Fabric Clocks (#8267B) – I’ve been wanting to try this one, maybe everyone else will get a clock.
Fabric Flowers (#CT10423)
Home Accents (#CT10430)
Now, I’m on a roll. I’ve got plenty to think about and hopefully you do too.
