Happy Earth Day!

Our retail maven Michelle is our guest blogger for Earth Day. Check out her gorgeous, green recommendations, available at Blooma of course!:

So, Earth Day is tomorrow, and I was reminded how far green shopping has come as I navigated the very busy aisles of Whole Foods on Saturday. It's nice to see green is more of a way of life now instead of a trend! At Blooma, we have a lot of great ways to shop green, from simply local (yogini Jaime Pellegrene's gorgeous jewelry) to local & organic (Sassy's super cute infant dresses, tot jeans, and yoga pants), and even renewable resources (super-soft bamboo yoga lounge pants from Be Present).

Coming soon to the Blooma collection: Organic logo tees for men, women, babies, and kids! Yay! My favorite green tee of the moment is Amy Tangerine's Organic Tree Hug Tee. Tanks arriving soon!

The best thing about this whole movement is that what's good for the earth is even better for our sweet little babes. I just read a fab book Healthy Child, Healthy World, and I highly recommend The Complete Organic Pregnancy by Deirdre Dolan & Alexandra Zissu for all you expectant moms. Be warned though, you may find yourself peppering your conversation with the dangers of parabens and phthalates, annoying your in-laws with green baby shower requests, and pestering your husband for an organic crib mattress. You might even be inspired to cloth diaper! (so totally easy, truly!)

One more thing for you eco-fashionistas: Check out these fun reusable shopping bags and glass baby bottles.

Happy Earth Day!
