There are few things I appreciate more than a "one stop" shop. Buying consciously is tricky enough, but having to shop separate retails for each member of your family (and do the necessary research to make sure each shop fits your values and of course, budget,) is no easy feat. Furthermore, practicality, comfort, and kid-friendliness are huge pluses when I shop anywhere for my girls.
We're all for the twirly dress and tutu, but when a day at the lake beckons, we need clothes that can translate from home to camping trip and back again.
Enter Ungalli Clothing. In a few short weeks, these pieces from the family (and eco) friendly store have become our go-to for anything from lounging at home to a campfire to a camping trip turned picnic at the lake.
Ungalli is a Canadian brand focused on education and transparency. When co-founders (and sisters) Hailey and Bree learned about the effects of the fast fashion industry both on the environment and on the hands and lives making our clothing, they knew there had to be a better, more sustainable option. Ungalli was born out of their desire to spread awareness while creating an earth-friendly, worker-friendly product.
Their pieces are made with recycled materials, specifically plastic water bottles, which are shredded and refined into yarn and re-made as recycled polyester. One Ungalli tee gives new life to approximately 10 plastic water bottles, which means that my family alone is wearing about 30-ish plastic bottles that would have otherwise ended up in landfill.
In addition to their eco-friendly fabrics, Ungalli designs and manufactures all of their clothing locally, reducing their carbon footprint and supporting their local economy.
The brand offers just about everything from tees to joggers to hoodies to hats. There are even goodies for pets and kiddos. Ungalli spreads the love even further by offering custom tee printing for businesses, using their recycled fabrics.
With comparable pricing, comfortable pieces, and designs that are easy for anyone to wear, Ungalli is lessening the footprint of the fashion industry one tee at a time.
And, just to end on a realistic note, in case you think photoshoots with toddlers is as happy as it looks, here's a shot of Mara, after she fell in the lake.
