We’re all a part of this great big planet called earth. And bioME 5 encourages us to share the world’s wonders with its newest residents.
Each of the designs features a letter from the alphabet, a vibrant monochromatic portrait of an alliterative animal, and the name of the animal printed from a wearer’s-eye angle. The animal motif inspires interest in the natural world, while the upside down and backwards lettering encourages word recognition and eventually reading.
And bioME 5 follows through with its environmentally-friendly philosophy. Each garment is made with 100% certified organic cotton and manufactured in sweatshop-free facilities in the USA. Online orders are packaged and shipped in “green film” biodegradable plastic bags, taking as little as 9 months to biodegrade.
Another bonus: the onesies are undyed/unbleached organic cotton and tagless and preshrunk for baby’s comfort.
These eco-chic baby t-shirts and onesies are even more striking in person. When I pulled our “L” for Lion snapsuit out of the package, I actually gasped. And I think my toddler girl is jealous that her little brother will have such a fun animal outfit. The computer screen does not do justice to the vibrancy of the colors or the visual impact of the gorgeous photographs used in the design. I’m impressed with the stunning graphics, the quality of the fabric, and the mission and message of the bioME alphabet project.
Kids love wild animals and your little nature-lover can wear his appreciation for the earth’s creatures.
