Organic baby scarves (or drool catchers/bibs/burp cloths!)
Wilkie turned six months old last week, and suddenly he's doing all sorts of new 'tricks' -- like getting teeth (drooling a lot) and eating three meals a day (constantly making a mess of his clothes). These organic cotton baby scarves from Hauptli Haus Kids have become a wonderful staple in our house. Not only are ...

Our New Earth
I was recently introduced to Hugh Dinning and his lovely brand Our New Earth through the Australian father-in-law of my friend Elke.

Tube Toys!
So cool and so innovative and so eco-friendly! These clever Tube Toys are a series of vehicles to assemble (car, tractor, fire engine, train) where the packaging (the tube) becomes the toy.  Using the packaging considerably reduces the amount of material you throw away after buying it and the extra cost that traditional packaging involves. ...

Fournier -- so beautiful, and so socially conscious
Now that Ava is finally taking her first steps (see photo on our Facebook page!), I can go crazy with all the cute little dresses around (dresses just don't work well on a crawling baby). One of my favourites is from Fournier -- a darling little dress, hand-knit in Bolivia from the finest baby alpaca you can ...

Cozy Christmas Blanket from Hopsan
Sometimes you just have to see and feel a product to really appreciate the quality. This blanket from Dutch eco brand Hopsan is like that.

Hopsan, sweet eco baby clothes...

La Queue du Chat -- organic children's clothing
There's something about cute, crisp underwear for kids.

(If only I were as picky with my own underwear, but it seems that for myself I prefer those old pieces!) I find ...
