Welcome to the ALL NEW "Monkey Baby ...going green" (Formerly known as the Monkey Baby Boutique blog). This site has been dormant for quite awhile as my life took a turn in a different direction. My children are growing up and I've been focusing on designing knitwear.
Recently I've done some thinking about continuing on with this site, and it has led me to a total makeover! I will continue to post tips on going green and creating a healthier you, healthier home and a healthier planet! But I will also be including information on sustainable knitwear created by myself and others. Please leave your comments and let me know what you think of the NEW look!

Eco Chic Knits

Eco Chic Knits is committed to providing the finest quality hand knit and personally designed scarfs, sweaters, and tops using sustainable, natural, or organic yarns. They are pleased to introduce Eco Chic Knits Baby! Eco Chic Knits Baby specializes in hand knit to order baby hats featuring organic, natural, sustainable, or alternative eco yarns including naturally dyed organic cotton, organic cotton and milk/soy.
According to Earth Pledge, a non-profit organization (NPO) committed to promoting and supporting sustainable development, "At least 8,000 chemicals are used to turn raw materials into textiles and 25% of the world's pesticides are used to grow non-organic cotton. This causes irreversible damage to people and the environment, and still two thirds of a garment's carbon footprint will occur after it is purchased."
Let's begin supporting Sustainable Designers! Check out a couple of Lindsay Lewchuk's adorable designs below. Makes me wish I had another wee one in my life to knit for! I started this blog when my son was just a toddler. I can't believe he's now 6 years old and going into 1st grade! Time flies! Cherish each and every moment you have with your little ones!

Please visit the  Eco Chic Knits website for more info on Lindsay's incredible designs!
