Sustainable Kids - SUSTAINABLE KIDS brand is built to help teach global compassion and responsible eco-consumerism to youth through a lifestyle clothing brand.

The girls & boys collection sized 2-14, is forward-fashion and forward-thinking.

Our business is built on three points:

  • MANUFACTURING SUSTAINABLY
  • SUPPORTING SOCIAL CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS
  • EDUCATING YOUTH TO BE MORE RESPONSIBLE ECO-CONSUMERS
The line is designed sustainably; using certified organic and recycled fabrics and organic lead & pthalate-free inks, and is produced ethically in the USA.

The collection donates $1.50 for each purchase to help fund housing for homeless children in Haiti, which becomes a US-territory in July 09. Each consumer purchase includes a post-paid donation box-- the child who receives something NEW is then encouraged to donate (with their parents help) something to a child at the children's orphanage who has less (a book, a toothbrush, toy, etc). IN THE POST-PAID RECYCLED BOX.

We hope to build a bridge between children in the first world and lesser-blessed children in third world countries.
