The Urban Kimono: Eco-friendly and Fair Trade

Kids & Baby

je suis un bebe | i am a green

i am a green 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 donates 2% of profits to two non-profit organizations: Oxfam-Québec and the Fondation Monique-Fitz-Back. This garment is made with100% organic (certified by Control Union grown with respect for the Earth without chemical products or toxic pesticides) Fair Trade Cotton.  Silkscreen inks are certified biodegradable according to GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
