Introducing...turtleparktots!

Shop Name: turtleparktots

A little about you: My name is Jennifer and I'm a work at home momma of two beautiful boys ages 14 months and 3 1/2 years. I have been sewing forever and I started to make baby accessories after the birth of my first son. In January I decided to stay at home with my baby boy and make my love for sewing and passion for fabric into a business.

A little about your products: Turtle Park Tots is a line of handmade, modern and functional accessories for momma and tot. I have recently introduced the Green Tots(tm) line of organic baby accessories. This line features beautiful organic fabric from Harmony Art and the highest quality organic cotton fleece and terry cloth. Currently, the Green Tots(tm) line includes organic changing pads, bibs and burp cloth sets. More organic accessories are in the works.

All Turtle Park Tots/Green Tots items are handmade with the utmost attention to detail and using the highest quality designer fabrics. All Turtle Park Tots accessories are double and topstitched for durability and longevity.

What about the organic mission inspires you?: The health of my babies and the health of the Earth. There are far too many chemicals in our environment much of which we really know nothing about. I've worked hard to create a "chemical free" environment in my house. Whenever possible we purchase organic food/milk, non-toxic/organic cleansers/soaps and other household products (especially diapers). We are also avid recyclers and composters.

I'm now extending this to my business by using Gerber(tm) certified organic cloth diapers in all the Messy Baby! Burp Cloth Sets and by creating the Green Tots(tm) line of accessories which offers organic versions of the already well established Turtle Park Tots baby accessories.
What's your current project: I'm in the process of expanding the Green Tots(tm) line of accessories. I'm adding more fabric choices and designing new products.
Where your products can be found: Organic Green Tots(tm) accessories can be found at turtleparktots.etsy.com, www.boodabubs.com.au (Australia), www.gokye.com (US) and http://en.dawanda.com/shop/turtleparktots (Europe).

I am so glad you are using organic, I wish all the organic fabric was around when my kids were little. I did use cloth diapers and was in the minority back then.
