the green gorilla

So Sunday night I got bored and decided to hit up the local Wal-Mart to buy some random things (seriously, I went in there for mascara and ended up perusing the aisles, like normal).

I was randomly walking through the bedding aisle and found what I consider to be one of the cutest bed sets I have ever seen. It is seriously darling. And cheap. I looked at the tag and the bedding is by Green Gorilla which is manufactured by CHF. I couldn't find an actual picture of the bed set anywhere, but found this while googling.



You can't really tell, but the comforter is green with all different color birds and flowers on it. (I think it looks like fish in the picture, but no it's totally birds). Not only that, but the set also included sheets, which are white with multi colored flowers, and pillow cases. All for $65!

And it gets better...

While searching EVERYWHERE for this Green Gorilla line, I came across a press release that says: "Cotton used is 100% organic, certified by SKAL, and created with low-impact dyestuffs, she said. Designs feature animals, butterflies, sports, florals and '50s graphic themes. Eco-friendly packaging has a smaller carbon footprint, and the insert is made from recycled materials."

Not only good for the environment but cute too?! I love the fact that the cotton is 100% organic. And that the press release uses the word "dyestuffs." And can we just talk about the '50s graphic themes? And eco-friendly packaging and reducing carbon footprints and it's recycled?!

On the CHF website (the makers of the Green Gorilla line), they had some of the other bed sets. I especially love the one with the trees!






I am in love with this line. I'm totally going back for the little bird pillow that matches. I just wish it was easier to find online. All I know is that it's environmentally awesome, cute & available at your local Wal-Mart.

Sleeping Soundly,
Rose

I bought the green bird set for my daughter. She is probably the pickiest 4 year old on the planet! and she LOVES IT!!! Although the sheets are made with organic cotton, I was scared the sheets were not going to be soft enough for her sensitive skin. However, I was wrong. Totally LOVE Green Gorilla!!!

I just bought the green one with birds and flowers for my 3 year old. Fabric is very soft. Got a twin set at Walmart for $35. It's the cutest bedset I've ever seen and very happy with the quality.

I have this set and my 3 year old LOVES the colors and I LOVE the fabric. I too found this at Wal-Mart and was surprised at the quality for the price. I say this is a great buy.

I was just at Walmart today and I purchased that blue owl pillow, as well as a light blue bird pillow. They're adorable and I'm in love with Green Gorilla already. I really want to get a set from them now.
