Even though it feels like summer just started, take stock of what the kids wore out this school year and will need for next. Turn to Garnet Hill Kids to get a jump-start on your back-to-school shopping.

Their Eco Backpack Collection has already checked the boxes you’ve thought of (durability and fun prints) as well as the ones you may not have (ergonomic details and a recycled construction that spares the planet). And, if you have little lasses looking for comfort and style inside and outside the classroom, Garnet Hill Kids girls’ dresses offer easy fits, playful patterns, and flexible style—school days, birthday parties, and shifts in the season are a pop of color away. They’re all made with natural materials, making sustainability the name of this school game. Read on for a few of our favorite back-to-school picks from Garnet Hill Kids.

Special offer: Receive a free matching lunch pack with your backpack purchase through August 14, 2019 (that’s a $19.95 value!).


Fly Style: Organic-Cotton Butterfly-Sleeve Dress

Fun will take flight thanks to the fluttery sleeves on this dress. Made of organic, jersey-knit cotton, she’ll be as comfortable flying across the playground as pausing to solve that next math problem. To transition to fall, easily layer this look with a jean jacket and leggings.

Available in Dusty Violet and Dark Gold, $48.

Kid-and-Planet-Friendly: Eco Kids’ Backpack

Your little student is going to love this backpack. From zippered compartments galore and side pockets that will fit any water bottle, to reflective features and padded and adjustable straps for an ergonomic fit, there’s no slowing down in Garnet Hill Kids’ Eco Backpack Collection. The recycled poly in these PET backpacks is PVC-free, while using reclaimed plastic bottles only requires about half the energy as less sustainable counterparts. Now, that’s smart thinking.

Available in an array of fresh prints, $49.95


Catch All: Olivia Organic-Cotton Dress

She’ll find this long-sleeved dress super soft and adore loading up its pockets; you’ll find it durable and love its organic Green Cotton. Both of you won’t get enough of the colors and prints to choose from.

Available in Mauve Zinnia, Blue Multi Butterfly, Pink Merry Meadow, Turquoise Folk Woodblock and Yellow Prairie Floral, $40.



Posh Play: Organic-Cotton Boho Knit Dress

When you still want the comfort and reassurance of organic cotton as well as sweet detailing, like embroidery and bishop sleeves, this knit dress is perfect for play and beyond. From class presentations to piano recitals, she’ll be ready.

Available in Cranberry, Kale and Twilight Blue, $48.
