You know I love companies that have great ethical practices - those striving for a carbon neutral environment, eco-friendly products, fair trade practices, social responsibility, etc. And I always get excited to find those companies that also have fabulous products for Mum, Kids and Home.
One of those is cornflowerblue who have a divine collection of organic cotton dresses and sleepwear for little girls under the cornflowerblue ORGANIC label. The Australian-designed clothes are made in India where workers are paid a fair price and manufacture the clothes in humane environments. In addition, the company gives back to communities in India through projects set-up and run by cornflowerblue, as well as supporting selected Australian charities.
One very special project that I'd like to encourage everyone to participate in (it's so easy!) is the Use It. Love It. Give It Back! program. Send your gently used children's clothes to the cornflowerblue headquarters where they will be distributed to children in need in India. The cornflowerblue team often pass by children in rags, and come across orphaned children and those in their English classes that are in desperate need. The greatest demand is for size 7-10 girls and boys summer clothes. Get the mailing details and more information here on the cornflowerblue website. The next shipment will be sent in early March 2010, so send your items soon!
You can find cornflowerblue ORGANIC in the cornflowerblue online store and at a selection of Australian stockists. Check out the huge January-February 2010 Sale on in the store at the moment - up to 40% off many pieces! The cornflowerblue online store also stocks a whole range of gorgeous pieces from other designers that are either organic, environmentally friendly or recycled.
