The Urban Kimono: Eco-friendly and Fair Trade

i am a green baby.com is a independent art project and a creation of Marlene-b. The idea is quite simple: to circulate a positive, educational message. The project was inspired by the many new mothers and fathers surrounding the artist, coupled with her socially conscious leanings as a graphic designer. It proves that it is possible to put a 100% organic, fair trade and creative product on the market. It also demonstrates that responsible consumerism can contribute to a better world.
The whole process of creating, developing and marketing the Urban Kimono je suis un bébé vert (I am a green baby) has been guided by ethical choices. i am a green baby.com donates 2% of profits to two non-profit organizations: Oxfam-Québec and the Fondation Monique-Fitz-Back.
