BOODA BELLIE - With Giveaway



Consider this: Conventionally grown cotton uses more insecticides than any other single crop. Pesticides used on cotton even when used according to instructions, harm people, wildlife and the environment. These pesticides can poison farm workers, drift into neighboring communities, contaminate ground and surface water and kill beneficial insects and soil micro-organisms.

I have heard a lot and read numerous reviews recently about clothing made from organic cotton. As a result I was DYING to check it out for myself, so when the opportunity to review an item from Booda Bellie came along, there was absolutely no hesitation. I couldn't wait to see if what I had read was even sort of true. 

I was sent the pink yoga pants from the Comfy Collection for my daughter (5) to try out. Joyce, who is incredibly generous, also sent her a matching Raglan shirt to match (pink and white), and not wanting to leave my son (2) out of the excitement, an adorable Raglan shirt (this one with the logo) in black and white (spoiled rotten!). The first thing I noticed was how SOFT the clothing is - I didn't really believe it until I felt it myself, but there is a definite difference between *regular* cotton and *organic* - I showed my sister in law at Christmas (they had just arrived) and she couldn't believe it either. My kids love wearing them - they are perfect *Saturday Clothes* when you just want to be comfy - but also perfect to head out to the store in.

Booda Bellie’s garments are knit, finished, dyed and sewn in Canada. Not only is the process used for dying environmentally friendly, meaning no waste or pollutants are used, they also use an eco-friendly, low viscosity ink formulated to create super soft finishes that simulate water-based inks. It’s non-toxic, lead-free and latex-free. AND, there is no bleach used in their products. They really make every effort to provide clothing that we as parents can feel good about buying. 

And the monkey - seriously, who can resist that adorable monkey?! 

So let's pass along some of this organic goodness to one lucky winner, shall we?! Winner will have the choice between one of the following tee's from the Comfy Collection - Booda Bellie, Lizard, Unicorn, or Spider.
