Zoolu Organics

 

 

 

 

Zoolu Organics is a children’s clothing line made with 100% organic cotton and water-based inks as a much healthier alternative to the PVC-based, toxic inks used in 90% of baby clothes.

The line features tops, dresses, pants, burp clothes and more, with screen-printed original designs that are much more unique and hip than the typical cutesy cartoon designs.

After her husband’s diagnosis with the terminal illness ALS, Patty Abbott conducted some research that led her to believe the disease is related to toxins in our environment. She decided to eliminate all toxins from their home, from cleaning materials, cooking utensils, and non-organic foods, and started looking at what companies were putting in baby clothes. She was alarmed to discover that 90% of the prints on baby clothes use Plastisol inks, which are PVC based.

Abbott founded Zoolu Organics so she could produce something that was safe for her new son to wear. She designs the graphics and prints the garments herself to ensure the process is eco-friendly and each product is unique.

For May go Greener with Endangered Species Chocolate

Fabulous chocolate “born out of a desire to make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species that are disappearing from Earth.”

With interests rooted in a deep love of chocolate making, Endangered Species Chocolate set out in 1993 to source natural, ethically traded chocolate as a carrier for an environmental message. Through the crafting of premium, thoughtfully sourced chocolate, Endangered Species Chocolate generates funds for conservation efforts worldwide.
