Re: Safe Shopping List

Hanna Andersson clothing many items are oko-tek certified and many more items are being made of organic cotton. They cost a bit more, but the quality is worth it.

Patagonia.com
I love them, they make great coats, clothing, and even kids clothing.
All cotton they use is organic, since 1996! and they use unique recycling. They don't use slave labor and give 1% back to the planet and all that they sell is manufactured in the safest way they can. Check them out, they are more expensive but you know "you get what you pay for" and they have really great sales.
I also second the Hanna Andersson clothing, they have a great outlet in Michigan City, Indiana
Also go to gogreenisland.com they are a great little B&M store n Traverse City Michigan, they have a nice selection of organic baby and kids clothing, as well as natural mattresses. Check them out, I got my pack and play mattress from them and my son loves it.

Re: Safe Shopping List

When you order from Hanna Andersson ask for the country of origin of each item. We don't buy things from China, and they have been making more and more things there. We aren't buying those things anymore. If you like Hanna Andersson, but don't like things made in China please email them...maybe if they get enough complaints they will change back to other places...before they carried almost nothing that was made in china.
