The Secret Forest Playschool is part of The Duluth Nature Play Collaborative. Together we aim to educate, inspire, connect, and advocate for nature play for young children in Duluth, MN.

As an advocate for play and nature she made it her mission to courageously and creatively offer a rich experience for children to learn and grow. After researching what programs in other parts of the world were doing to meet the need of their youngest generation and with the support of her family and friends she opened Duluth’s first nature-play program, Secret Forest Playschool in the fall of 2012. Since opening Playschool, Meghan has been able …

Have you been surprised by one of thredUp’s polka-dot bags in your recent order? We hope you’ve had a chance to take advantage of this online consignment service that allows you to recycle women’s and kids’ gently used (or almost new clothing and shoes) to other families around the country.

If you have more, please let …

Grow plants with the children – spring is here! Gardening is a beautiful activity now that spring is here! It’s fun to play around with soil and seeds! It is exciting to watch when a small green plant emerges from the soil and then grows and gets bigger and bigger! When you grow plants with children, choose seeds that will grow fast so they don´t lose interest. It is extra fun if the plant can be eaten! Here are some suggestions for edible plants: cress, pumpkin seeds, sunflower and citrus seeds. If you are eager to get involved, help the little ones decorate or make their own plant pot! Use old milk cartons, bottles or what you have at home. Make small holes on the bottom for …

Polarn O. Pyret supports more sustainably produced cotton As we buy large quantities of cotton and consider our corporate responsibility extends beyond our production, we became a member of BCI in September 2013. The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) was established in 2005 to help make global cotton production more sustainable. By labeling and promoting “Better Cotton” as a sustainable commodity, the BCI helps make global cotton production better for producers, for the environment where cotton is grown and for the future of the sector/cotton industry. Each year, Polarn O. Pyret aims to increase the amount of Better Cotton we source to contribute to the more sustainable production of cotton. By buying Better Cotton, Polarn O. Pyret helps BCI minimize the damaging effects associated with traditional …

The Importance of Reflectors on Clothing

February 20, 2016 by Cynthia Hernandez

Reflectors are important. A motorist can detect a pedestrian three times as fast if the pedestrian is equipped with reflectors. Polarn O. Pyret has been making children’s clothing for 40 years. We’ve had time to learn what works and what doesn’t. Every detail on our garments – from t-shirts to outerwear – has been tried and tested. Every garment has been specifically designed with children in mind. We don’t compromise on quality, design or function. That’s what makes the difference. Polarn O. Pyret’s overalls, shell jackets and shell pants have reflectors with 360-degree visibility for children to appear as well as possible in the autumn and winter darkness. Even our wind fleece jackets, hats, and shell mittens have reflectors. All for the best visibility in …

Polarn O. Pyret marketing director, Petra, describes her family’s Christmas trip to Malaysian Borneo. She shares some tips and tricks on what to think about before, during and after a trip.   Our adventure is getting closer – we are going to go to Malaysian Borneo with all our family over Christmas and New Year. I now feel the children are old enough, 7 and 9, for such a long journey. We grown-ups are looking forward to lazy days on the beach and exciting excursions into the rain forest. The children are thinking about what will happen on Christmas Eve. Will they get any presents? What kind of Christmas sweets will there be? And how will Granny and Granddad fare back home? And who is …

We Make Clothes for Children.

Not for girls. Not for boys. We make clothes for children. The bodies of boys and girls are very similar before they reach their teens. We work with clothes for children. So why would we make them different clothes? It may seem obvious, but our belief that both boys and girls need good fit and function makes us unique. We aim to make the world’s best shell jacket, knee sock, t-shirt and sun hat. Who wears what – and what colors – is up to you. But both boys and girls need good looking clothes that are strong and versatile. That’s what unisex means to us. Polarn O.Pyret – unisex since 1976.   “We wanted our children to grow up as people, not boys or …
