Soleil Moon Frye, previously famous for her role as Punky Brewster on the 80′s sitcom, is expanding the scope of her green baby empire with the launch of a new eco-clothing line for tots.

The new threads will carry the same name as her green baby shop in Los Angeles, The Little Seed. Moon and her business partner Paige Goldberg Tolmach decided to create the new line after having trouble figuring out what to put on their kids. “Both our kids had allergies, and we wanted to create an eco-alternative that they could wear that would be incredible, it would be colorful,” she told The Insider. “We wanted to kind of spin the concept of organic upside down and really create something that was vibrant and beautiful and colorful and filled with life, and happy and cheerful. From beginning to end it’s been the most amazing process.”

Among the celebrities in attendance at Moon’s launch for the clothing line were Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore. Look for the new Little Seed eco-clothing to hit the site soon.

    I was watching an old TV show from the 80s the other day. It mentioned the “4 billion” people on Earth. 20 years later it is now 6 billion.

    The most ECO-baby thing people can do is limit themselves to 2 children if adoption, having just 1 child or having no children is not an acceptable option.

    The world replacement rate is just over 2 children per couple. If people hold themselves down to 2 the population size will stabilize.

      you got it, beforewisdom. a recent study supports your point about limiting offspring, or going childfree, period. so many people want to reduce their carbon footprint, but insist on bringing as many kids into the world as they want. just because you can afford it, doesn’t mean the earth can.

      also, i’m sure many will blame those in developing countries. the big difference is that we, in north america, are aware of the issues (due to universal access to education and mainstream media). therefore, we have the greater obligation to practice conscious procreation.

      Actually, the best way to reduce your impact isn’t to have 2 kids. Most people who have 1 or 2 kids are Americans and their family carbon footprints are huge!

      Why? Because those one or two child families tend to over consume everything from clothes and processed, over packaged food to toys. Reuse reduce regift recycle.

      Here’s a tip: buy used jeans and embellish them instead of buying preabused jeans that take more energy to produce.
      Nothing is more pathetic than the amount of clothing americans send to the landfill!

    the softest organic baby clothes i’ve found yet are made by sami baby out of bamboo… plus they’ve got the cutest little panda on the front of their tees :)

    Very good concept. I would love to buy clothes for my baby which are organic

    Ashton looks bored, lol.

    We went with all organic diapers for our little one and I think it minimized the amount of rashes she had during those first few months. Well worth the money to prevent her discomfort as she adjusts to the world.

    unfortunately, all this seemingly “green” goodness won’t make nearly as much of an impact as supporting the elimination of raising livestock. the meat industry, alone, contributes unspeakable amounts of greenhouse gases (through methane, amongst other animal-produced gases). unless soleil and her high-profile friends are also vegetarian, little seed is nothing more than a token gesture, trying to pass itself off as legitimate environmentalism.

    • NYMOM

      If livestock are fed their natural diet, they produce very little methane. Reducing the amount of meat one eats can have a profound impact, and is easier than the unlikely solution of a world of herbivorous humans.

      • NYMOM

        Oh and it’s actually cattle not livestock in general; they are natural herbivores and are being high grain diets. Naturally the poor dears have all there tummies upset.
