One such new company is NewBornMom, which features many cute, eco-friendly goods, as well as 100% eco-friendly gift wrap! Plus, they are offering our readers 10% off all purchases until March 31, 2008 (promo code: ecoplay).
NewBornMom was founded by Aliette Fenton-Sharp and Fernanda Pinzon, both new moms. After having difficulty finding elegant, trendy and environmentally safe essentials for their newborn daughters, they founded the store. This online store features goods meticulously selected by Aliette and Fernanda that they would use with their own babies.
The company supports Fair Labor Trade regulations, and every item offered is made in proper working environments. NewBornMom uses only recycled office, shipping and gift-wrap supplies; “we pride-ourselves in being a relatively paper-free company as most of our business is conducted via e-mail”, states Aliette.
This eating-encouraged spoon and bowl set is meticulously handcrafted from eco-harvested cherry wood. Each set inherits the unique grain of each tree, which contains a history of the weather, climate, and soil conditions experienced during its growth cycle. Finely crafted and sanded baby smooth, our spoon and bowl set is the ideal size for children beginning to eat on their own.
Both of my children love to eat from the wood bowl and spoon, and I feel good that it won’t break if dropped on the floor, and that it is not made from BPA leaching plastic.
NewBornMom also features really cute eco-friendly pajamas for infants. Super soft and made from organic cotton. If I had an infant, I would never take her/him out of these! These are essential goods for any new babe!
As a green mom in San Francisco expressed about NewBornMom:
I’ve been eating and buying organic products for myself and my kids for many years now. Too bad you weren’t around 12 years ago when I was in desperate search of “safer” baby products. Thanks for caring for our children and our lovely planet.
I couldn’t have said it better myself! Our littlest ones are the most vulnerable to toxins, so I am thankful that parents now have eco-friendly, affordable options. Don’t forget to use the promo code “ecoplay” for your discount, if you decide to purchase some hip, eco-friendly gear for your little one from NewBornMom.
