Lately, it seems that every new — or seasoned — parent has gotten hip to the notion that going green is better for their kids — not to mention themselves and the planet. And the earlier any caregiver starts, the better. That’s why we love these adorable tees and onesies from Rock n Roll Babies, a cool, California-based clothing line dedicated to creativity, environmentalism and ethical business practices.
Debbie Hartung and Kris Bhat, the artists behind the brand, wanted to fill the fashion void they saw in the world of kids’ clothes — there are so many choices for adults, they thought, but for kids, not so much. Their styles are funky and cool, and every organic cotton design is screen-printed locally with 100 percent sweatshop-free labor. They even offer a clothing recycling program (because we all know how fast kids grow up); just send back used items and get a 15 percent discount and free shipping on your next order. Rock ‘n Roll Babies is one company that really, well, rocks.
