*Celebrate Baby* Happy Green Bee Review & Giveaway [Ends 3/24]


I am always super excited to open packages of prizes or review items. Most of the time I get just what I expected. Rarely I get something that's not quite as good as I expected. And even more rarely, I get something which completely takes me off guard, because it's more than I expected. When I opened the package from Happy Green Bee, it was love at first sight.

Happy Green Bee's founder Roxanne Quimby is also the co-founder of Burt's Bees. This is one of my favorite companies so it was interesting to learn that. Roxanne sold Burt's Bees in 2003 and used the proceeds to fund two organizations which support the environment. She started Happy Green Bee, because she saw a void in children's clothing wear and a lack of awareness of the benefits of organic cotton. Result is Happy Green Bee which is an all organic cotton clothing line created specifically for kids.

Happy Green Bee has a huge online clearance store. All the items are made with organic cotton. The items are truly adorable, colorful and bright. And most importantly, the prices are as low as they can only be. Short sleeve and long sleeve shirts start at only $4. I don't know about you, but I've never seen such prices on organic kids clothing. They also have a catalog section with very cute and unique clothes for girls. 


For my review, I was sent a bright blue hoodie in large (3-4 years). Like I already said, it was love at first sight. The material was incredibly soft, yet very thick. I've been to their website before and I guessed that the hoodie was reversible. On one side it's a solid light blue and on the other - well you can see it on the photo :) I was very impressed with quality, color and design! When I was growing up the reversible was "in" and it's exciting for me to see it come back. 

The package also contained a small book of Giggles, Riddles and Rhymes - To Read Out Loud. Besides containing giggles and riddles it features some of Happy Green Bee's clothes. I've never seen this done before where the product catalog was made into something more productive like a kid's book. Usually I toss catalogs in recycling, but this one I will keep so my baby can read it later. 

I am very impressed with Happy Green Bee and absolutely recommend them to every mommy and baby out there! The Reversible Hoodie retails for just $12 and comes in 3 colors - sky, watermelon and bean. Shipping to US starts at $7.95 and to Canada at $17.


Why buy Organic?
Cotton clothing retains harmful toxic residues, often causing rashes and eczema on sensitive skin
Clothing made with organically grown cotton does not retain toxic residues; it is a pure, natural, and breathable fiber.

Cotton occupies only 3% of the world's farmland, but uses 25% of the world's chemical pesticides. Worldwide, 25 to 75 million agricultural workers suffer from acute pesticide poisoning.
Organically grown cotton is not treated with pesticides.

Petroleum based hydrocarbons (chemical fertilizers) are intensively applied to cotton crops to artificially speed up and otherwise "enhance" the plant's growth cycle and productivity. The runoff of these compounds pollutes our watersheds and food chains.
Organically grown cotton does not use petroleum-based fertilizers.

Genetically modified seed accounts for 75% of conventionally grown cotton. We can only speculate about the unintended and unforeseen consequences of genetic engineering.
Organically grown cotton does not use genetically engineered seed.
