Do you remember this show? This was my absolute favorite show when I was growing up. It gave me such a cozy feeling because I knew as soon as Punky Brewster was over that my mom would be home from work! Ahhh...childhood memories! I loved watching Punky and Cherri and all their shenanigans! I wish they would play re-runs of this I would definitely DVR it!
Well, come to find out I have every reason to still be loving this girl. Soleil Moon Fry (the girl who played Punky) is now a mom and has her own line of organic baby clothes called The Little Seed. The line is colorful, simple, and eco-friendly. It would make a perfect baby shower gift! And as if it weren't exciting enough that it is all organic, guess where you can get it...Target (my happy place)!!!!
Some of you may be wondering as I used to, why in the world would I buy organic clothing? Organic food I understand, but why clothing? Here's why... for each organic fiber t-shirt you buy it eliminates the use of 150 grams of agricultural chemicals. It takes approximately one pound of chemicals to grow three pounds of conventional cotton, while organic cotton is grown chemical free. Non-organic cotton is commonly portrayed as natural, yet it is highly cultivated and processed which contaminates groundwater and ultimately drinking water, poisoning the food chain.(obviously I researched this)
By purchasing natural and organic fiber clothing you are supporting environmental causes and fair trade working conditions. I am trying to be more conscious of this when I am making purchases. I certainly don't only buy organic, not even close, but now I think of this when I buy things and that is what I think is most important, that we are aware and that we do our best!
