Have we got a great addition to the Dreaming of a Green Christmas Giveaway! One of my favorite online organic clothing stores is giving away a different kid’s clothing item every day this week. Wildlife Works is generous with dkMommy Spot readers, but their goodwill doesn’t stop here. It reaches around the globe to the country of Kenya where this amazing company created an 80,000 acre wildlife refuge, then built a clothing “eco-factory” near it where they give locals steady employment. The garments created there are what you’ll see featured at dkMommy Spot throughout the week. Whenever you buy an article of clothing from Wildlife Works, you’re putting your money directly into that wildlife preserve while employing the local community.
Before Wildlife Works, this particular Kenyan community had to depend on the local wildlife for food for their families. But since the introduction of the company into the area, the locals can afford to keep their families fed and clothed, and the children in school – and the wildlife stays safe and protected. Great for everyone!
But what about the clothing? These are good-quality items with lots of care taken in the construction of each piece. I’ve always found organic cotton to be much softer, and Wildlife Works’ garments are no exception. With designs inspired by the Kenyan wildlife, the kid’s clothing will have your little critters dressed in comfort and style. My son has been wearing a darling elephant tee, and the design has held up well to wear and washing. The saying on the shirt? “When two elephants fight it is the grass that suffers.” People will definitely be asking you where you got your cute kid’s clothing! Be prepared to spread the word.
Today’s first giveaway is a Kid’s Zebra Inspired Hoodie in size Medium, equivalent to a 3T. It’s made of 100% organic cotton terry, and the front pockets and little Africa tag on the bottom hem make it just as cute as it gets.
