Giveaway: Barley and Birch

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! This week the SLM network has 15 giveaways for our readers — great gift ideas,  a charity spotlight, and more!

This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you!

We’re kicking off the week on Simple Kids with a giveaway from one of my favorite companies, barley & birch. This company is the home of “unabashedly organic, planet-saving clothes” and won the 2010 Parent’s Choice Award for Best Organic Clothing.  I’m proud to be a barley & birch customer for those reasons.  My kids are proud to wear barley & birch because of the cute graphics which are bright, happy, and fun to wear.

Clothes that are comfortable, fun, and come with a  good conscience – who could ask for more?

Today I’m giving away a $100 gift certificate to barley & birch. I love this company and have fun dressing my kids in their clothing and I know that you will, too.

To learn more about barley & birch and how to win this gift certificate, keep reading.

Founded in January 2009 by Kyle Smitley, barley & birch is in its third year of raising the bar for natural and organic clothing businesses.  Not only are barley & birch clothes for kids unique and world changing, they really are adorable.  My kids get compliments whenever we are out and about and they are sporting their tees and onesies.

I also appreciate that the clothing is not only ethically made, but that it is well made.  Our barley & birch gear holds up to life with small children.  Some of our tees are on their second kiddo and still look great and show just normal wash and wear.

In short, I love barley & birch, my kids love barley & birch, and I really think you are going to love the company, as well.

One Simple Kids reader will win a $100 gift certificate from barley & birch!
