The Green Thirteen #6: Apericots Review and Giveaway (Ends 11/30)

Monday, November 16, 2009 Posted by Dina N


When I was growing up, no one was concerned about the chemicals and pesticides sprayed on cotton plants. Dressing kids in 100% cotton clothing was the norm in my family. The scary statistics that conventional cotton crops cover 2.5% of the cultivated land but get 16% of the pesticides worldwide was not common knowledge. Today, we have the option of wearing natural fibers that are organic and pesticide-free.

Apericots  makes adorable 100% organic baby clothes using the latest technology and highest quality products. You can even customize the clothes! Apericots carry personalized high quality organic baby clothes including onesies, cloth diapers, bibs, shirts, pants, hats, etc. Every design is printed with eco-friendly, water-based ink. The company was founded by a group of parents, creative minds and friends who wanted to offer an environmentally conscious and unique alternative to generic baby clothing.

I received the beautiful pink thermal shirt you see in the picture. I love everything about this shirt - from the soft cotton fabric to the pretty design to the name Two Birds A'Kissing! The shirt is very well-made, with great attention to every stitching detail. The neckline is generously cut to allow easy access. The sleeves have cuffs that are neither too tight nor too wide. The light pink color is called Cotton Candy and is just as sweet. The two birds are a darker shade of pink and make for an adorable detail. My little girl looks oh-so-cute in this shirt!

At this time, the organic cotton clothing of Apericots comes in sizes up to 24 months. I was excited to find out that in a couple of weeks, Apericots will be introducing a toddler addition to their line! I can't wait to see the new collection.

And now you can win a $25 gift certificate to spend on whatever you want from Apericots!

To enter, please visit Apericots and tell me how you would spend the gift certificate if you won. Would you buy one of theirs, or design your own? So many adorable choices!

For extra entries, do any or all of the following:

  • follow me on twitter and tweet about this giveaway – you can do this once a day, feel free to copy and paste: "Win $25 GC from Apericots at the Green Thirteen Event! #eco #giveaway #giftcard @aitmama http://tinyurl.com/yk6ucrc" ;
  • sign up to stay in the loop with Apericots - see bottom left side of their home page;
  • spread the word about my Green Thirteen blogging event;
  • go here for additional ways to get extra entries.

The deadline to enter is November 30, 2009, 11:59pm EST. A winner will be randomly selected and notified by e-mail. They will have 72 hours to get back to me, or an alternate will be chosen. Open to those with mailing addresses in the U.S. The winner will receive their prize directly from the sponsor. I received the shirt with no obligation to write a positive review. No monetary or other compensation was received or implied. 


Good luck!
