Congrats to Sueanne of Fort Worth, Texas, winner of this giveaway!
I’ve been wanting to talk about organic cotton for quite sometime, and now I have the perfect opportunity. People wonder what the big deal is about organic cotton, and I can tell you that for me the biggie is knowing my clothing doesn’t have pesticides in them. That’s because just like your fruits and vegetables, how they are treated while they grow directly affects how your clothes and food will treat you later! Maggie’s Organics knows that and has a great online store selling organic and fair trade clothing. I love companies that stand for something, and this is definitely one of them. Maggie’s is obviously committed to quality items. (You can even download a 49-page PDF to read up on the American Organic Standards that Maggie’s abides by.)
I’ve got a wonderful camisole and pants lounge wear set from Maggie’s Organics that I have been thoroughly enjoying. They’re very comfortable and well-made, with fabric that feels very high quality and nice sturdy stitching. I notice I’ve become more and more intolerant of clothing that looks thrown together with fabric you can see through, an expensive label on the butt, and a high price tag it doesn’t deserve. It’s nice to have something I can feel so good about wearing. And I can’t forget to mention the design. The camisole is black with a beautiful little blue bird on it that says “Visualize”. I’m the sort who spends a lot of time visualizing things, and it’s always been a big part of who I am. It’s a great reminder to myself, especially at the end of the day when I’m winding down and already looking forward to what the next day will hold.
If you’d like to win one of these lounge wear sets for yourself or someone special, Maggie’s Organics has sent one along in a size Medium. (If you’re too impatient to wait to win, they’re on sale now for $20, regularly $37.) A winner will be chosen at random on July 11, 2008.
