When will Target start carrying organic and earth-friendly clothing? I
love this store and was excited to see the retailing giant finally
introduce reusable bags earlier this year. It’s definitely a first step,
but more needs to be done — and not just by Target. Other retailers
should make a concerted effort to seek out earth-friendly clothing for
the whole family. Children’s clothing is especially important since they
sprout through their clothes at such a quick rate.
Instead of getting into your car creating a large footprint, shop at
these websites for earth-friendly clothes. Most of them use the United
States Postal Service for their delivery needs — the USPS is the only
mailing company to obtain Cradle to Cradle Certification*. Express and
Priority mail packaging are made out of recycled materials.

A familiar quote graces the front page of Lilly and Loo’s website :
“Unless someone like you cares an awful lot, nothing is going
to get better. It’s not.”
Taken from Dr. Seuss’s environmental anthem
story, The Lorax, the quote relates to the company’s vision of
bringing ethical, Fair Trade and sustainable goods to the world. It’s a
vision all these companies share.
