Are Ecopacifiers made from sustainable material?
Here at Ecopiggy, we are committed to sustainability. Our Pacifiers are made of 100% pure rubber from the rubber tree, Hevea Brasillensi. These trees are sustainably grown in Malaysia. After about 20-25 years, the tree stops producing latex sap. When that happens, the trees are harvested and re-planted. The harvested wood is used extensively in furniture, flooring construction, and toys. From seed to tree to ecopacifier to wooden toys, the Hevea Brasillensi has an eco-friendly, sustainable, and high quality life
When my first babe was teething, everyone suggested synthetic medicines to help alleviate the pain, a few well-meaning aunts and uncles suggested a touch of brandy on the gums, but it took my own research to find that there were natural alternatives that are immensely healthier than any of those. When I would bring my son around wearing his Baltic Amber necklace, it became clear to me that hardly anyone had heard of them. Once I started explaining it, about 50% were amazed and wanted to know more, and the other 50% were certain it was a hoax. Well, here I am; teething baby number two, and we’re still sold!
Are you a health & ecologically-aware parent with a child that needs to bring valentines and candy to school to hand out to the other kids? We have solutions for you here at Ecopiggy! Starting with our Eco-Friendly Non-Mushy Valentines, followed by a ridiculously delicious recipe for homemade chocolates.
As we are heading into the cold season, make sure that you’re well prepared to battle the sickies with our power duo: Ecopiggy’s exclusive filterless nasal aspirator and Pacidose!
Ecopiggy Nasal Aspirator
We have come a long way since the blue rubber squeeze bulb aspirators that doctors used in the 80’s to suck mucus out of baby’s noses. Being the daughter of an ENT doctor, I got to experience this unfortunate occurrence quite a bit as a child! Luckily, now there is a much gentler and safer alternative. You simply place the soft silicone tip into your child’s nose, and the attached straw allows you to control how much pressure you are using to pull out your little one’s congestion. Our design is unique from others on the market because it requires no filters, and therefore it produces less waste. This product is not just for babies ~ the Ecopiggy founder still uses this product on her children as well, five and seven years old!
October 2017 Store Spotlight: Bambini – Eugene
As a part of our Wholesale Program, Ecopiggy releases a monthly Store Spotlight to provide a glimpse into the stores that are an extension of our mission —to provide the best natural children’s products available. We know the stores that we work with, daily, have carefully selected their brands that serve the family, environment, and overall health of our communities.
We are proud to kick-off our first Store Spotlight, to one of our neighbors here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest —nestled in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
