UCB BLANKET + PILLOW

The lug® collection of undercover bears is a cuddle team of different bears/agents. They have different colors, faces, names, and even personalities! Agent Boots, the brown bear, is “one tough bear – a mighty force, no doubt. His strength is matched by none around; he’s stable as a rock. Cuddle in close with this big, strong bear, and carry him for health and stability whenever you need cover.” 

 

 

 

There is an inflatable pillow for the bear cover or you could use the blanket inside the bear cover for a softer shapable fit (assuming you don’t need the blanket) Both the bear pillow cover and the blanket are machine washable.

I’ve washed agent Gomer, the “green” bear, several times since I’ve had him (2014) and he is still soft and in good shape. I’ve had many uses for him over the years. Not surprising that it makes a great back-to-school idea. We head out in the morning with a cuddly back seat travel buddy. Sometimes he rides with mom up front !

The Coin Laundry

Aprons, towels, and napkins for the kitchen. Onsies and tees for little people.

Shop this brand and enjoy vintage graphics. Love their eco efforts. 

My review-

a Towel. The “Beat it” kitchen towel has a vintage hand beater image on a flour sack style towel. Measures 30″ by 30″. I use a flour sack towel cause they are lint free, quick drying, and useful for a multitude of household purposes. 

a Tee. An acorn graphic with “I will be mighty” on a green tee. Sweet little shirt with a positive message!  Available in 2, 4, and 6T.

Beat it Kitchen Towel

I Will Be Mighty Toddler Kids Tee

both are 100% cotton and hand screen printed in Montana with earth friendly, water based inks and solvents. 

my Two Cents. Knowing that conventional cotton uses a ton of pesticides, the better choice would be using organic cotton or bamboo.

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?)

I’m happy to share my new discovery, SustainU. This is a West Virginia-based company that makes its university and outdoor apparel from recycled pre-consumer cotton waste and post-consumer recycled polyester (PET), which is derived primarily from plastic bottles and post-industrial polyester scraps. Men, women, and children tees and hoodies are attractive and soft. Just like conventionally produced clothes, only better!

Shop Earth Creations for organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo fashions for the entire family. Super stylish. Earth kind. In addition to using sustainable fibers, they also dye the clothes with natural clay avoiding the use of chemicals from synthetic  dyes. Their story:

earth creations evolved from an ordinary bike ride. One day after a storm, Joy took her mountain bike out for some off-roading and ended up covered with Alabama red dirt. Despite many tumbles through the washing machine, the shirt, socks, and shoes remained stubbornly stained by that mud! When Joy and Martin met years later, Martin was intrigued by the strength of that red clay. Where most people saw ruined clothes, Martin saw potential. Armed with his background in chemistry, concern for the environment, and a natural curiosity, Martin began experimenting with the clay as a dye for T-shirts.

That was almost 17 years ago. Our garments are still colored with natural clay dyes using the process Martin originally developed. From the first “Alabama Dirt Shirt” tinted with that infamous red clay, earth creations has grown into a full line of organic T-shirts dyed in a rainbow of colors for men, women, and children. We also have a complete casual wear line for women made from sustainable fibers.
This season I’m wearing the stylish Kimmy Poncho. Perfect as a cover-up, it can also be worn just as a top. I wear my Kimmy Poncho as a layering piece since I like to be snugly warm during the chilly months. It’s flowing design isn’t bulky or heavy; the mock turtle neck is also relaxed. This is a made in the USA item that is completely machine washable. It’s made from an incredible soft blend of hemp and organic cotton jersey with clay-dyed shades of earth. Available in black, celery, grape, mosaic blue, mud, pumpkin, and slate. This poncho comes in size S/M or L/XL, so determining size is easy. The Kimmy Poncho is a versatile piece that looks great either dressed up or styled down. What a great gift idea!
