Mission Playground Organic Clothing Review and Giveaway

This contest is now closed. Congrats to: The Queen of Clearance. Hope you enjoy your tank!

Soft, Soft, Soft.


Cute, Cute, Cute

Comfortable, Comfortable, Comfortable.

Those are just some of the words that come to mind when I think about my Mission Playground hoody and t-shirts. I should also add sustainable, green, eco-friendly, organic, practical, and soft (oh right, I have already mentioned that one).

Mission Playground is a conscious, eco-friendly lifestyle clothing company for men, women and children with an objective to raise awareness for the environment.

The earth is our playground; our mission is to preserve it.

This philosophy underlies our operations, from design to production to distribution.

Mission Playground kindly sent me a hat, hoody, and some t-shirts to sample (which I happily did during our long weekend in Canada). Please don't judge the cuteness of the clothes by my picture (it was toward the end of a long walk) although this seawater short sleeve 100% organic (with a child on a swing on the back of the tee) still looks pretty cute.


All of Mission Plyground's tees have message labels inside them. The message on this shirt reads, "Why conventional cotton is one of the world's most environmentally damaging crops. It uses large amounts of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, which scorch the earth and contaminate the food supply via livestock feed and cottonseed oil. Certified organic cotton avoids chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and GMO's. It's better for the environment, for the health of farmers, and for consumers who might be sensitive to chemical residues in the fabric" How great is that? Spreading environmental awareness inside and outside of their shirts!

As much as I love the tees I think my favorite item is the Kenny Hoody


I found this hoody to not only be stylish but also practical. It keeps me warm, is soft on my skin, and easily goes with many of my casual clothes. This was the perfect light jacket for walking around Victoria (even though it was sunny and warm the ocean breeze gave me a chill). Now that I am home, it is my staple little league game watching jacket.

Kenny Hoody Features: Lowered neckline, printed hood lining, embroidered patch art; 100% Organic Cotton Fleece; S-XL; comes in merlot or khaki.

Thinking of buying a hoody for yourself? Now would be a great time to do so. If you enter OVERCOFFEE at the checkout you can receive this cantwell buck hat for free (98% Organic Cotton Twill, 2% Spandex) Mission Playground sent me so many great items that I would like to share one of them with you so you can have the chance to feel just how soft Mission Playground's 100% organic cotton tees are. I am offering 1 reader a Size M green sleeveless shirt (just like the one pictured here but green).

To Enter: Visit the Mission Playground website, look around, learn about the company, have a look at their products, then come back here and leave me a comment about what product you would love to have.

Giveaway ends Sunday June 14th.

Extra Entry: Blog about this giveaway and post the link here.

Good Luck!
