Four Days of Giveaways from Grow Modern Organic Kids: Day Three


And the awesome giveaways keep coming! Today, I am focusing on the "organic" aspect of Grow Modern Organic Kids. In fact, I think that organic and non-toxic products are really at the heart of what Grow is all about.

Back in 2009, I was researching organic clothing for my story The Organic Option in Chicago Parent Magazine. That is actually how I met Deree Kobets, the owner of Grow. I interviewed Deree for my story and she was an amazing source of information about why it is important to feed our kids organically and also surround them with non-toxic, organic products when possible. I learned so much from her and really came to value her sensible approach to this sometimes complicated and confusing topic.

Deree says, "Our society has recently gotten smarter about eating organically. Our skin is our largest organ. Just as it releases toxins when we perspire, our skin absorbs what surrounds it. Therefore, our clothing, bath & body products even car seats and toys matter when it comes to our skin." Make sense, right?

Deree proudly features non-toxic and organic products in her store. Some of my favorites include K
ate Quinn 100% certified organic cotton clothing for babies and toddlers (love, love, love this line), the Orbit car seat (the only car seat that is certified non-toxic), and an awesome selection of non-toxic toys from Plan Toys and Green Toys.

Today, Grow is giving away the following package of items to one lucky reader (see the photo above):
Here's how you can enter to win this beautiful collection of organic items:

I am a big fan of Charlie's Soap - All Purpose Cleaner. I use it on my daughter's high chair, exersaucer, etc. I even use it for spot cleaning her car seat when I don't have the time to take it apart for a wash and overnight dry.

at this point, we take whatever we get from other people. we don't have the resources to buy this for ourselves (at least we're not buying non-organic things since everything is handed down!) someday maybe we'll be able to pick a favorite...

Adorable! Other then my cloth diapers I really don't have a favorite organic thing since we generally can't afford it, unless you count 2nd hand stuff lol.
Ohh a favorite way of painting, Light Kyro Syrup with a couple drops of food coloring(or other colorant) makes for a non-toxic toddler paint!

Gah- love that pillow.

I absolutely love Katee Quinn, too- her baby sacs are the best and Ivy is wearing a KQ dress today actually. I think it's well priced for the quality. We also are huge fans of California Baby products and Little Alouette!
