Buying Organic CAN be Affordable
I have to admit that when I see the word “organic” attached to anything from strawberries to burp cloths, I immediately see dollar signs. The benefits to buying natural and organic (from pesticide-free fruits and vegetables to dye-free cloth) are plentiful, but it’s a shame that these products aren’t affordable for all. Well, times are starting to change. After seeing yet another expensive organic onesie, I felt compelled to do a little research, and guess what? Affordable organic and eco-friendly children’s products ARE out there in the marketplace, you just have to do a bit of searching. Click through for my favorites!

Under the Nile
All products from Under the Nile are made from 100% handpicked organic Egyptian cotton, without the use of pesticides or chemicals. These cute kitties are made from the remaining scraps from their clothing line, so nothing is wasted, either!

The Green Creation
I love the retro look of this reversible bib (genius!) which is also 100% certified organic cotton. The Green Creation is dedicated to making a greener and healthier earth, and creating clothes that are hip, functional and affordable. The entire process, from organic farming and hand picking the best cotton and using paddy husk as a source of energy, to recycling excess material, is truly inspiring!

Burt's Bees Baby
Made from 100% organic cotton, Burt’s Bees Baby is the quintessential affordable organic brand (and until last week, I had no idea they even HAD a clothing line… I thought it was just a skin care brand). This particular line is sold at The Children’s Place, but you can also find Burt’s Bees Baby at CVS and Target, among others.
