In the summer of 2008, we went shopping for clothing for our newborn children and went looking specifically for clothes that were both chemical and pesticide free. The organic clothing we did find was really expensive and average quality. We thought there had to be quality, affordable organic clothing, but there wasn’t. So like many entrepreneurs, we set out to give astute parents a choice.
From the beginning, we vowed to manufacture our Funkoos brand clothing from the finest organic, chemical free-fibers. Our styles are always fun, simple and super-friendly to young children’s sensitive skin. Our mission is singular – to manufacture our clothes in 100% fair-trade work environments, keep our clothing purely organic, and give a portion of our profits back to the planet through our many charitable causes.
The Funkoos Community
Funkoos recently launched a free site for moms to find out what's going on in their communities. The Funkoos Community Site helps parents find local activities for their children.
Some of the things you can access from the Funkoos Community site include:
- Find local activities for kids by zipcode, including directions and weather.
- Get to know the benefits of eco-living and easy tips for a greener lifestyle by reading Funkoos blogs.
- Connect with mommies on Funkoos Forums to hear their views and suggest yours.
If you’re looking for a place to connect with other eco-conscious moms, check out the Funkoos Community.
The Clothing Review
Funkoos sent me one of their Organic Long Sleeve Bodysuits to try out for Kaylee.
Most of the onsies we’ve had in the past are made of pretty thin material. Not this one. It was a nice, thick cotton, which is great for the cold weather up in the mountains. And I feel great knowing my sweet little girl is wearing organic cotton!
If you’re looking for an ethical company to purchase organic children’s clothing from, check out Funkoos.
