Description:

Women’s Organic Cotton Apparel

Green Steps Taken:

Our clothing is made from 100% Certified Organic Cotton, in the USA and from low-impact fiber reactive dyes. We try to make deliveries to local boutique ourselves as to avoid all the back and forthness with the post office or UPS, etc. We reuse shipping boxes, packaging and use biobags (which are made from corn) instead of plastic garment bags which is the norm in the industry. We also use recycled paper clothing hangtags and hemp/cotton clothing labels. We also give one percent of annual sales to 1% for the planet, which helps us help the environment.

Currently Working On:

We are proud members of the Organic Trade Association and our application is pending approval at Co-op America.

Having Trouble With:

Not everyone is open to clothing made from organic cotton and it has been difficult trying to educate consumers one at a time.

Surprising Successes:

The fact that most of our customers (stores) appreciate our reused packaging and biobags.

Growing My Business:

To continue to keep quality high, fashion a must and prices low for our customers.

Giving Back:

YES! We contribute to local charities and support other mom business’s in the area (see northwestenterprisingmoms.com)
