Ecomum Giveaway- Ends March 22, 2010

ecomum: quality environmental alternatives

ecomum is a home-run business based out of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Ecomum specializes in quality reusable products, and hard to find organics.

Begun in 2001, ecomum was inspired by then 6 month old son Skye, and the frustrating experience of trying to find good cloth diapers and advice on how to use them, as well as ethically manufactured or organic clothing. Since then, ecomum has expanded its inventory to include organic clothing for adults and kids, as well as hemp and other alternative fabrics, reusable swim diapers, detergents, baby carrying slings, waldorf toys and more. Additionally, ecomum's home-grown product line includes hemp prefold diapers, and baby-weigh slings which are used by midwives across Ontario.  ecomum is proud to offer its own line of hemp prefold diapers, made at home in Canada from 55% hemp/45% green cotton fabric.  Not only are these hemp blends twice as absorbent as conventional cotton diapers but because of their hemp content are softer on the earth in their cultivation, and boast mildew resistant and antibacterial properties.  All hemp diapers are natural, unbleached colour. (steel blue, cranberry or taupe available as special order at additional charge)
The ecomum family is primarily Jeannine, and Dave, and kids Skye and Abi who are the testers for the products. Everyone helps out in some way -- Skye even helps with some of the home-sewn products, while Abi provides excellent distractions. Also at hand are local friends, and members of the Peterborough LETS Exchange Community Association. 
Ecomum's products are chosen for the following reasons as much as possible

  • ecologically responsible practices from field, to production, to your home
  • reuse-ability -- good quality stuff to last a long while!
  • ethical business practices
  • hard to find stuff that's good for your family (and your soul)
  • products made locally when ever possible  

Wonderful Brands such as: Laptop Lunches, Luna pads,  bumgenius, bummis, ecomum, Sage Creek, Bravado Designs and much more!!! And remember ... we can't save the world by consuming, but we can help by consuming with a conscience, and consuming less.  That's why ecomum offers quality reusable products -- to help make your footsteps just a little bit lighter.
ecomum is generously offering on Organic Girl Entrant a wonderuful Small Wet Bag made by Canadian Company Bummis. This is perfect for on the go and at the baby-sitters house. 

Like the large Fabulous Wet Bag in the Organic Cotton Diaper Kit, the small and medium Fabulous Wet Bags are practical accessories for any cloth diaper system. You will love these conveniently sized bags in the Bummis signature bright and crazy Super Brite fabric.
They are chic and convenient and very colourful! Double seamed on 3 sides, these bags are designed and constructed to be durable and absolutely leak resistant. Use them for anything - wet diapers, bum wipes, swimsuits, cosmetics, travel bag, etc.
The small and medium Fabulous Wet Bags have a snap-able handle for strollers and a zipper for odour control.
Turn inside out for proper washing. Wash and dry with your cloth diapers at normal temperatures in washer and dryer. Please avoid fabric softeners, chlorine bleach, or any other whitening agents.
Of course, as is true of all Bummis products, the Fabulous Wet Bags are made with careful attention to detail in their own wonderful factory in Montreal, so that they are assured of good quality and fair labour practices. The fabrics and components they produce with are all sourced in North America and are guaranteed lead, phthalate and BPA free. The  lovely minimalist packaging is environmentally friendly , made of chlorine free recycled fibres.
 SIZING: Small  10" x 12"   Manufactured by: Bummis Made in: Canada
