sustainability

In today’s global economy, we believe that the best way to uphold our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility is by supporting and promoting small-scale manufacturers and organic farmers across the globe.
Materials



Our clothes are made in a beautiful, clean, light-filled factory located in a picturesque coastal town in southern India. They’re sewn by a team of highly skilled workers from the local community who work decent hours for very fair living wages. With an organic garden just starting to take root outside, the atmosphere is as far from a sweatshop as you can imagine.

Believing that kids should be in school and on the playground, not at work, our manufacture doesn't employ anyone under 18 and actively supports the local elementary school. The owners just purchased several acres of farmland which will be developed as an organic farm where the factory workers will be able to grow crops and take what they need for their families.
Our clothes are made from handpicked and ring spun cotton, which is grown by an organic farming community that has been growing organic cotton in Northern India for centuries.

They are embellished with nickel-free snaps and low impact chemical dyes, which means they don't contain heavy metals so they have a very low environmental impact and are safer for people with allergies and sensitivities.

We also strive to use recycled and/or reusable materials in our packaging.

history


Positively Organic was founded by New York city residents Nancy and Peter Possenti, on the simple belief that when it comes to dressing kids, parents shouldn’t have to choose between style and sustainability.

Ms. Possenti came up with the idea for Po's signature B•Babies collection while driving around the rural farmland near the couple’s weekend cottage in the Catskill Mountains. In need of a baby gift and uninspired by what she found in stores, Nancy bought some blank onesies, designed a logo, and using iron-on photo transfers, created her first BarnBabies gift basket.  As requests started pouring in from friends and colleagues, she soon left her full-time job as PEOPLE Magazine’s Creative Services Director to dedicate herself to launching the business.

During a life-altering trip to a woman’s sewing cooperative in Nicaragua, the couple realized that in order to create a company they could truly believe in, they would have to commit to sustainable and socially responsible values — and Positively Organic was born.

With a clear vision, great passion and big dreams — but limited resources — the Possenti’s started their company working late nights and weekends while also holding other jobs.  Tapping into their diverse backgrounds and talents, they designed a website, ordered some inventory and, with a heat press in their living room, started fulfilling orders.

As the company has grown, the heatpress and expanding inventory have made their way to a new studio space but the Possentis still personally print each of their B•Babies images – both to ensure the highest level of quality and to stay connected to the physical process.

Peter continues to hold a fulltime job as a graphic artist while also overseeing the company’s technology, bookkeeping and printing needs.

What I thought:

I received the
Red Star long sleeve graphic tee made from soft organic cotton as well as the 100% organic cotton yoga pants in black for B to review and enjoy. I can't imagine a more comfy set of clothing! This outfit was absolutely perfect, super soft, and festive enough for the season. I feel even a tad jealous dressing him because of the softness! Positively Organic has an adorable line of organic cotton clothes for your little ones. The fit was perfect for him and they washed really well. Surprisingly, the red shirt didn't lose pigment or bleed either! The black has retained its color well now also. The yoga pants fit well over his cloth diapers and he was unstoppable playing around in his new digs.

Would I recommend PO? ABSOLUTELY! I hope that you all will check out Po's website and put one of their adorable outfits under the tree!

  16. Oh, not trying to score an extra entry on accident or anything but need to tell you my twitter name is @NotQuiteSusie since I already told you I'm following you :) While I've got you here, when does this giveaway end? It says 1/17/10 but as that was like, a year ago almost, I gather that was a typo somewhere, but not sure if the month or year is the typo!
