jillybean green Rocker School Backpack Giveaway -Ends Febuary 17, 2010

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not."

— Dr. Seuss, from The Lorax

jillybean green is an eco-friendly boutique for hip babies, cool kids and happening moms.  They feature the hippest organic baby clothes, organic baby gifts, big kid clothes, eco-friendly diaper bags, natural skincare, bath products, eco-friendly toys, beautiful nursery/room decor, personalized gifts, jewelry, celebrity favorites, maternity candles and so much more!  Their products are either natural, organic, fair trade, sweatshop-free, reusable, recycled, upcycled, or handmade by mothers around the USA.  We have some of the greatest  brands including baby star, Pixel Organics, Farmer Kids, Little Show-Offs, Huddy Buddy, Tiny Revolutionary, Four Peas, Fleurville, Crocodile Creek and Erbaviva, just to name a few. All super cool and fashionable
At jillybean green they love the book, The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, and its message is one that we should all share with our children.  jillybean green was created by a Los Angeles mom of two young hip kids who started taking an interest in helping the environment.
First, by no means are they 100% green in their lifestyle, but they are committed to making a change towards a greener life.  As Global Warming activist, Laurie David has said, “It’s not about doing everything, it’s about doing something.”  Every small choice makes a difference and if we each did something each day, we could help with the Lorax message of making things better.  

To help make the process less intimidating they have done some of the work for you.  They have researched tons of earth friendly, fashion forward products and think they have assembled the best of the best.  They offer families alternatives to adopting a greener lifestyle without compromising the “hip” factor.  They carefully select each product to provide a large selection of unique and stylish products that will not only guarantee your little one will be the hippest kid around, but the most eco-friendly as well.   

They partner with manufacturers that meet the requirements of being at least one of the following (or any combination!): organic (whether it be skincare or organic cotton in apparel and accessories), made with sustainable materials, employ fair trade practices, made from recycled materials, recyclable, reusable and/or non-toxic.  

They also love to support handmade artisans and feature quite a few handmade items from local designers, all made in the USA. 
 jillybean green has an awesome collection of personalized gifts  that include plates, jewelry, birthday girl/boy tees, personalized onsies and tees and Lunch Boxes for boys and girls!!

 Did you know the average school-age child generates 67 pounds of lunch trash per school year. It seems most thoughtful to pack lunches with as little garbage as possible that is why metal lunchboxes are a great reusable option.  The Center for Environmental Health recommends metal lunchboxes as a good alternative to vinyl.  All of these personalized metal lunchboxes are lead free and made in the USA! Also great for storing toys, crafts or snacks in your home, car or for play dates. Personalize with the child's name or monogram, it's up to you! jillybean green has a wonderful collection of lunch bags, messenger bags, backpackes , eco-friendly drinking bottles and supply bags.
