A clerk in a store today said “Oh, you’re all green and stuff, huh?” with just a hint of mockery in his 25 year old voice when I handed him my reusable bag. Granted, it was a thrift store. Maybe they don’t get a lot of reusable bag people in there. Whatever.

When my son was an infant, though, I sometimes got the same kind of reaction from other parents of babies when I mentioned organic foods or toxin-free baby products. I felt like shaking them and saying “WAKE UP! The world is a very toxic place and your baby is this precious, brand new little life. You need to be aware of these things.” But I didn’t want to be all preachy or make anyone feel like crap so I would just smile serenely and let it go. Well, these days I have this site and I can talk about organic and eco-friendly baby products as much as I want. WIN!

So… As you may have guessed, I love organic, non-toxic products and as I’ve mentioned before, Miessence makes some really great ones, even for babies. Free from phthalates, petroleum by-products, parabens, artificial preservatives, synthetic detergents, fragrance, allergens, semi-natural ingredients and certified organic, Miessence delivers some of the best baby products around and even it’s packaging is 100% recyclable.
