Into the Wild + Little Green Radicals
For those of you who know me, you know that eating organic and non-GMO is fairly high on my list of priorities. But the idea of a healthy lifestyle goes far beyond what we eat and drink. Our health is impacted by the world around us; the air we breath, the dirt we touch, the clothes we wear and the products we use.
"The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction."
While it's important that I am cautious about our foods and the farming industry, I also strive to live a vibrant healthy lifestyle where I can focus on sustainability and my awareness of the carbon footprint I leave behind. Our earth is in trouble and we need to take action. If only we could listen to Rachel Carson and appreciate the wonders of our world then maybe we would make a better effort to preserve it. Those very wonders are all around us; the mountains out west, the rolling hills of Ohio, the silent beaches of the coast, the desolate dessert. But look closer, look into the wild, and you will see beauty all around you. You don't need to travel far and wide to experience these luminous wonders and realities of the universe. Simplify. Turn to your backyard and watch the winter breeze dance across the overgrown grass. Open your bedroom window and close your eyes, listen to the sound of the trees as the boughs gently waltz back and forth.
"Our life is frittered away by detail...Simplify, simplify, simplify! Simplicity of life and elevation of purpose."
In an effort to simplify, I am focusing on quality versus quantity. When Little Green Radicals reached out to me about working together on a post I knew it was a good fit. In fact, their tag line says it all, "Organic fashion for free range kids." Shortly after their launch, Little Green Radicals was one of the first brands in the Uk to get Fairtrade certification for cotton.
Their organic farmers, based in India, get a guaranteed price for their cotton and they don’t use nasty pesticides. The employees in the factories get fair wages, maternity leave and several other benefits that, unfortunately, most factory workers overseas do not get.
Over the years this ethical, organic and Fairtrade company has blossomed into an award winning beautiful brand. Little Green Radicals combines fashion with comfort and delivers a quality line ranging from newborn to eight years of age. And make sure to check out their organic skincare line as well; I have my eye on the organic sleep balm! It sounds so dreamy and perfect for our cold winter nights.
