Happy Green Bee Review & Giveaway

Happy Green Bee is an environmentally friendly company that was founded by Roxanne Quimby who was also the Queen Bee of Burt’s Bees.  After selling Burt’s Bees in 2003, Roxanne’s newest adventure is Happy Green Bee.

Happy Green Bee has a simple philosophy: clothing that is comfortable, colorful, playful and ecologically responsible. "We created Happy Green Bee so that a child can be a child, first and foremost," Quimby explains. "By using organic cotton, a comfortable and practical fabric, and simple bee-striped patterns, children feel as comfortable as they look while their parents take a small step in making a big difference in the environment their children live in."

Happy Green Bee clothing is made from organic cotton that is grown on living soil that is free of herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers which increases the health and safety of our environment.

Happy Green Bee clothing is dyed using earth-friendly, low impact Swedish dyes.  All of Happy Green Bee products are made in fair-trade certified factories which are monitored for worker health and safety.

Happy Green Bee has an awesome variety of clothing and accessories for babies and kids.  The bright colors and striped patterns are cheerful and stylish. Happy Green Bee also offers wonderful gifts perfect for birthdays, baby gifts and of course, Christmas!

Thank you to Happy Green Bee for generously sending  my daughter a complimentary Petal Dress in Radish/Bean for the purpose of review.

The Petal Dress is adorable. The child pictured to the left is not my child. Unfortunately, my camera is broken, so I am unable to provide a photo of my little one wear this adorable dress!

Expert twirlers agree that our petal-skirted dress is a dizzy delight! Roomy sleeves, scoop collar and soft rolled edges for fuss-free comfort in bold laugh-out-loud colors. Alone, or paired with leggings, our flirty hemline offers maximum flare for spinning, dancing and the perfect curtsy.

The Petal dress is available in five colors, which you can see here. The sizing chart is readily available on the website as well, making picking a size much easier.

My Review:

I love this dress. More importantly, my daughter loves it.When I first put it on her she would walk around the room, twirling all over! So cute:) When asked what size to send, I had picked size Large which fits a 2-3 year old (25-30lb).

Since I have a 3 year old and a 16 month old I thought this would be perfect. One of them would fit it at least. My three year old is very tall so this dress ended up being too short for a dress but she can, and does wear like a top with leggings. It is so cute. My 16 month old however, fits this dress perfectly and because we have the red/green dress pictured above, we will be using it for this holiday season for sure! In fact, I am now on the hunt for something red or green for her big sister to wear so we can take some great photos (once my camera is fixed-ugh!).

I love the idea of organic clothing. See here for more information regarding the importance of organic clothing. To know that my family can wear clothes that are all natural, makes me so happy. Especially knowing that there are no chemicals, etc used in the making of these beautiful clothes. I also love the idea that Happy Green Bee supports Fair Trade during the production of their product.

Happy Green Bee is a great pick for this Christmas shopping season, or anytime of the year!
