Made in America — Children’s products

The next post in our “Made in Amer­ica” series focuses on com­pa­nies that make prod­ucts for our pre­cious lit­tle chil­dren. It seems like buying/acquiring things for our chil­dren is inevitable as they grow and change so fast and are involved in so many activ­i­ties.  The good news is there are a sur­pris­ing num­ber of ways to come about these prod­ucts in a beau­ti­ful way.

One addi­tional rea­son it is nice to seek out prod­ucts for our chil­dren that were made in Amer­ica is because these prod­ucts are sub­ject to more strin­gent safety stan­dards and test­ing. Which should mean no/or less BPA, other poi­sons and toxins.

Today, I will share a few com­pa­nies that are mak­ing awe­some prod­ucts right here in the United States. YAY! The added bonus is that all of these com­pa­nies  have addi­tional virtues such as being “green” and poli­cies on “giv­ing back” which makes them even bet­ter  orga­ni­za­tions to support.

1.) Bed Head Pajama’s — Sells really cute PJ’s that are locally cut and sewn. In addi­tion, Bed Head works closely with a local com­mu­nity pro­gram, Esper­anza, to pro­vide jobs and other types of support.

2.) Earth Cre­ations — Earth Cre­ations makes eco-friendly cloth­ing in a way that  pos­i­tively impact the lives of every­one involved in their pro­duc­tion process. The have adorable prod­ucts for kids of all ages that are “eco-friendly”. They didn’t spec­ify how on their site but they also claim to “give back to our com­mu­nity in mean­ing­ful ways, help­ing out good causes and sup­port­ing envi­ron­men­tal efforts.”

3.) Wild Dill - Not every­thing on this site is Made in Amer­ica, but they have a great search mech­a­nism so you can find the prod­ucts that are for each cat­e­gory.  The have a  great selec­tion of children’s prod­ucts that are made in Amer­ica and the prod­ucts aren’t made in Amer­ica are organic, fair trade, and/or recy­cled (so they have re-deeming qual­i­ties as well).

4.) Rockin’ Baby — This could quite pos­si­bly be the per­fect baby shower gift. These baby slings and car­ri­ers are bright, fun, func­tional, and made in Amer­ica!  BUT their impact extends our country’s board­ers, for every sling you buy one is giv­ing to a mother in Haiti.

5.) Green Toys - Green Toys are made in Amer­ica and are super eco-friendly.  Not only are the prod­ucts made from mostly recy­cled milk bot­tles but all their pack­ag­ing is made from recy­cled mate­ri­als. And they have so many great options to choose from! My son has the cook­ing set and he loves it.  We also use their sippy-cups and plates and they are some of the best we have tried!

Have a great Monday.
