We occasionally buy organic cotton onesies or blankets for the baby, usually online. Amy has a few pairs of yoga pants made from hemp and organic cotton. Around here, there are a few boutiques that offer such clothing, but it tends to come at quite a premium. I rarely buy clothes, but when I do, it's at the mall where it's rare to find organic.
This is exactly the mental definition I have as well. I am constantly on the look-out for these items, because I am both a vegan and environmentally conscious. This is not something with which only the rich and famous should concern themselves. We all share this planet. Our choices affect the wellbeing of every occupant on the globe. I would enjoy knowing more about finding ethical/fair trade/vegan products.
