itzy ritzy, a company well known for car seat and shopping cart covers, has unveiled an eco-friendly baby bamboo line.
Baby Bamboo fabric is made with no harsh chemicals that can irritate tender skin. It is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and deodorizing, as its own natural ingredient, Bamboo Kun, prevents bacteria growth and it even has an inherent UV protection factor.
My only critique of itzy ritzy’s new line is the packaging, at least for the Bitzy™ Eco-Friendly Burp Cloths & Wash Cloth which comes in a rather large plastic tube for the size of the cloths. Sure, it’s a unique package, but it is not very eco-friendly. The company recommends you reuse it for crayons, legos, etc., but my four-year-old son cannot open and close the lid without assistance. The plastic is flimsy, so I don’t know how long it would hold up under reuse; however I like the handle. Reusuable or not, the packaging should be recyclable.
It’s contradictory to place an eco-friendly product in wasteful plastic packaging that is not recyclable.
Bitzy™ Eco-Friendly Burp Cloths & Wash Cloth are very soft, thick, and absorbent. These burpers/wash cloths are made from remnant fabric from other itzy ritzy products. The company is run by parents of two children and is popular with celebrity moms and dads, such as Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Melissa Joan Hart, Marissa Jaret Winokur, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Gwen Stefani, and Nicole Richie.
Thanks for the review! I absolutely agree with you about the packaging. As a note, the Bitzy’s typically come just tied in ribbon for the very eco-friendly benefits you mentioned, yet the package you received was gift wrapped in the paint can packaging. Our hope is that the paint cans can be re-used for crayons, paint supplies, ribbons, etc.
