Birth and Beginnings

September 2013 Update and News

In 2007, the idea for an eco-friendly clothing line was first born, while I was still pregnant with my daughter. More than 3 and a half years since Golden Curly Tail first launched, the website http://www.goldencurlytail.com will close down between September – December to transition and evolve into a better website.  The journey from birth of a business to where we are now, has been full of joy, challenges and many lessons learned. Golden Curly Tail will merely be transitioning into something more evolved and better.

The LIMITED EDITION Golden Curly Tail onesies and toddlers tees will be available for sale on again on http://www.goldencurlytail.com very soon. Please check back with us by the end of September for more information.

Green Parenting

My Adventures in Green Parenting

When I found out I was pregnant with my first born in 2007, one of the first things I did was change my diet. I became more conscious about eating organic fruits and veggies. I reduced my meat intake and of course, started taking my pre-natal vitamins.

As I was preparing to give birth, one of the things I did a lot was clean, throw out and re-organized. Around the house, as I was cleaning, I started to notice the cleaning products I had, and realized how toxic many of the cleaning products were. I purchased some green cleaners, made from plants and fruits, and have used them since.

I went to the library and checked out many books on de-cluttering and green cleaning. An eye opener for me was how vinegar and lemon does wonders for the cleaning process.

We changed the old carpeting in our place and replaced it with bamboo flooring.

We bought an air purifier to clean the air in our place.

I wish I could make more changes, but being green is not cheap.  It costs a little bit more here and there, but I have made a commitment to make small changes each day to be more green.

Clothing:

Because my kids had eczema, I was very particular about finding clothing that did not feel itchy on their skin. I wanted to have more quality items and less quantity. It was hard, because we received a lot of baby gifts and I had more clothes than my kids could wear. When I did find a favorite shirt, I often wished I could have more of them for the week. This is one of the reasons we have created the Golden Curly Tail product line.

Golden Curly Tail’s most recent Summer Sale is the 7 Day Package for $100. You receive a total of 7 shirts, enough for a week for $100. Save $40 when you purchase this special deal. I am proud to say that my own 7 month old wears our own GCT shirts. As a mommy and the owner of Golden Curly Tail, I am so greatful for these shirts. I wish I could share this with others. And now I can.

Give the gift of comfort, style and peace of mind to a baby or toddler in your life.

Purchase a GCT “7 Day Package”. This Special Item is available starting September 20th, 2010.
