New Products in!
I am happy to say that the Grandma El's products are in as well as our organic prefolds, and washcloths / wipes from Precious Dignity.
These are both USA products I am proud to say. The Precious Dignity products are made of USA grown cotton and sewn in OH. We will now carry their organic velour prefolds, organic wash cloths/wipes, and organic hooded towel sets.
I will try to control my rant, but I do have to rant a bit... WHY is almost everything we buy made in another county? Why are we feeding other economies instead of our own? While running my babies wash I started looking at the labels. Most infant brands are made in China. Why? I am becoming more and more aware of the products I buy and make a true effort to buy American made when possible.
When I was researching prefold diapers and deciding which to carry through Green Pixie Baby. I knew that I would not buy prefolds made in another country, but didn't realize that most prefolds even if "sewn" in the USA are made of cotton grown in another country. Most are grown and sewn in Pakistan or China. Who regulates what chemicals they use on the crops? Who regulates what chemicals they use in bleaching and processing of the cotton? I couldn't sell products that I did not feel 100% safe to use on my own child. When I found Precious Dignity I knew that I had found the perfect prefold! All of their products are made of USA grown organic cotton, sewn in their shop in OH by local woman earning a fair living. Supporting their and OUR economy. Yes I am very proud to carry Precious Dignity products. Now you will notice that they are higher in cost than the products made in other countries, but they are also higher in quality. When it comes to our babies do we really want to buy cheap without concern of health? Health is the main reason to cloth diaper.
If you use prefolds I highly recommend that you try the organic velour prefolds by Precious Dignity. They make great burp cloths, and can be used as doublers for nightime and naptime with your favorite all in one diaper as well.
I'd like to hear your feedback once you've tried them. OHHH and they offer a lifetime warranty for repairs! Amazing!
Have a wonderful weekend, and buy American when available.

- Hello my name is Marie. I have four healthy, beautiful children. When our latest blessing joined our lives in November 2008 we decided to do the best thing for her and our planet. We went the cloth diapering route. During our search for cloth diapers we found limited availability in our area. We knew that we were not the only family facing this dilemma. Together we decided that we were going to help bring the green trend of cloth diapering to Franklin, TN. So here we are! We specialize in American made cloth diapers and baby products. Spreading the love of cloth diaper fluff and American made stuff one baby at a time. www.greenpixiebaby.com won’t you join us in saving our planet and parenting green?
