Eco-Mama Hearts a Bargain!
We're all looking for ways to save some green right? *resounding yes! As a new mama I want only the best for my little Juliette. That means I try to find the most natural fabrics, ingredients and eco-companies to support. I've been a member of EcoBabyBuys for a few months and have scored some darling little Kicky Pants rompers for 60% off. I thought I'd share the wealth! Below is all the information you need straight from the horses mouth, and in this case that means EcoBabyBuys themselves:
EcoBabyBuys.com's "one deal a day" format features eco-friendly items for babies and children for at least 40% off regular retail prices. The deals go green at 9 am EST, but you have to be quick with your mouse (or smartphone) because it's on a first come, first serve basis.
When Manuela and Stacey set out to create EcoBabyBuys, they had one principle in mind. Their mission was to discover manufacturers that offered non-toxic, eco-friendly and fairly traded products for babies and children. As urban mothers, they thought a little bit of style wouldn't hurt either.
As mothers of young boys, they know firsthand that parenthood is a doorway to chaos. Lives get thrown upside down in good ways and ways completely out of one's control. Practicality and function often take over. Looking good gets relegated to unbreakable and spill-proof. Unfortunately, anti-aesthetic practicality also comes at a much higher price in the form of harmful materials used to make baby products cheap and durable. It takes one brief phone call to one's parents to realize that it wasn't always this way. Manuela and Stacey believe that it is possible to raise one's children without the fear of toxic products and that is EcoBabyBuys.com's mission.
It is also their goal to alleviate any additional stress that comes with being a busy parent. Not everyone finds the time to address the safety record of a manufacturer or knows where to start to look. They take pride in researching their vendors to meet the following strict criteria so that they may provide the best and safest possible products on the market to their customers:
· the use of non-toxic materials and dyes;
· the use of organic and/or recycled textiles and materials;
· the use of eco-friendly packaging;
· and a commitment and adherence to the standards of fair-trade.
In addition to EcoBabyBuys.com, the founders also have a blog (also found at www.ecobabybuys.com) where they write about topics relating to living an eco-friendly lifestyle, and they welcome a dialogue with their customers and the larger web-community.
