A little about our beginning

Crisp air, fresh sea breeze, and delicious Mediterranean food were the first stop on my journey. We grew up with simple, durable, handmade clothes that were easy to slip into. I’m forever grateful for my childhood on the sea and want to provide the same for my kids. 

 

henley - natural

Henley & Joggers

100% organic cotton

joggers - greece blue

Both the top and bottom are a size 4 which is the largest size available. Hopefully, Malu Organic will continue expanding their line and offer more sizes. Greece blue is a lovely shade. While a henley shirt and jogger sweat pants are both typical styles, the quality of fabric and the workmanship is first-rate. Love soft clothes.

The Reef Dress
Reef Dress
A wonderful spring layering piece and adorable stand alone dress for hot weather. This sleeveless dress has a self made 6″ cowl neck and is made from our organic cotton slub fabric that adds a subtle pattern to the fabric. A fabulous stand alone piece, or layered with a belt and leggings.
I just about never wear dresses but this style works for me. I don’t think of it as a dress but like the description states, a “layering piece”. It can be easily dressed up or down. Add a hat and you’re ready for Derby Day!
True to all Earth Creations clothes, the cotton is noticeably soft! Choose from 6 colors. Modeled in Sea. Made in the USA. 100% cotton slub. (What exactly is slub?)

Steve Baker, inventor of the DUS-T, created ICHANGE inc. in 2005.  The goal of the company was to enlighten the public to the causes of respiratory damage and skin disorders caused by everyday exposure to the environment.  Steve and his associates have been working diligently to ensure a safe work place, as well as creating a reliable solution to the wasteful disposal masks that have flooded the market. “Green thinking” is the way to a cleaner planet and a healthier environment!

I think you’ll agree that the DUS-T is a great protective garment for you and an Earth kind alternative to disposable dust masks. 

The DUS-T Undershirt – This should accompany the “honey-do” list. It’s perfect for all sorts of jobs. What do you get with the DUS-T? A comfortable shirt that has an attached face mask. The mask part rolls into the collar so the shirt looks like a regular shirt but the mask is there when needed. The mask covers the neck, mouth, and nose; there are ear straps to secure it in place. The DUS-T is made from 100% cotton and washable so it can be worn again the next day. It replaces disposable dust masks and is much more comfortable to wear. It’s made in the USA; available in several styles, colors, and sizes.

Yellow Label Kids offers children clothing (sweaters and hats) and toys (dolls, puppets, and rattles). I reviewed the Frog and the Panda hat. Although both these hats are made of conventional cotton, they do have products that are made with bamboo yarn. (website’s Earth Friendly tab) I asked Hillary/YLK why only some of their products were made with Eco fabrics. Her response:

Because eco materials are unfortunately not available in all of the developing countries where YLK products were sourced. YLK began first and foremost as a Fair Trade company and began to incorporate eco-friendly materials as they became available.

My Frog and Panda hats were HAND-made in China. YLK products come from several different countries; I was told that “finger puppets, hand puppets, waldorf dolls, sweaters and some hats have been manufactured in countries such as Bangladesh, Peru, India and Armenia.”
