Happy Green Bee Review & {GIVEAWAY!!} CLOSED

Happy Green Bee was created by Roxanne Quimby. Roxanne and her partner, Burt, who both are earth loving people, started Burt's Bees (Sound familiar at all??). Once Roxanne sold the very profitable company, she decided to get involved in some new projects. Seeing a void in organic children's clothing, Roxanne got to work!
Roxanne has said, "We created Happy Green Bee so that a child can be a child, first and foremost. 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."
Going through their bright, cheery, and comfy looking designs, it is hard to believe that it is all organic, but it is! I haven't had the opportunity to try out their clothing, but I seriously want to. Everything is quite cute. I am a huge stripe fan, especially for my little one. If you are too, Happy Green Bee is the place to shop!
I had the opportunity to review the Mom's on the Go Kit. While I can't necessarily testify about their clothing line yet (though from the looks of the line, I am sure everything is amazing), I can say this kit is unbelievable! The kit included:
-A 4 oz. non-toxic biodegradable eco-friendly laundry detergent
-A 2 oz. home-made diaper ointment formulated with organically grown comfrey, Vitamin E, lavender, and a blend of botanical oils
-A 2 oz. sample size of calendula oil made from organically grown calendula flowers and botanical oils
-A 4 oz. herbal room spray which uses all natural essential oils
-A keepsake tooth fairy tin
-Everything you need to plant your child's birthday apple tree
I haven't tried everything in the kit yet, but I have used the diaper ointment and the room spray. My son had a diaper rash and I decided I would try my Happy Green Bee ointment. By his next diaper change, his rash was completely gone. To say I am impressed is an understatement. I am swearing by this stuff. I may never use any other diaper rash ointment again.
The room spray is also incredible. I started spraying it in my son's room to get rid of the dirty diaper stench, but I loved it so much that I decided I would keep it in my room for my pleasure. Selfish of me? Probably.
Now, like I said before, Happy Green Bee has some seriously cute clothes for the little ones. They offer several choices of tops, bottoms, sportswear, dresses, hats, socks, tights, and even a few fun gifts.
