In honor of Earth Month, the Ecopiggy team is thrilled to launch our new “Dinner Dialogue Series,” an ongoing concept we’ll post every First Tuesday of the month, where we invite you to lead a conversation about a suggested environmental topic with your family, over a meal. Having dinner is the perfect opportunity to connect and to listen openly to how your family members feel about these topics, mainly concerning a transition to a more ecofriendly and green lifestyle. We firmly believe that change starts at home so why not use this comfortable environment to engage and educate each other and our future generation of change makers?
This week, we’re honored to showcase the incredibly inspiring work of EarthHero, an online marketplace that makes sustainable shopping easy and accessible for all. We’re particularly excited about our new collaboration that allows you to shop for an array of Ecopiggy products among other trusted brands that are doing good for our planet. Below is a conversation with EarthHero’s passionate founder, Ryan Lewis, who truly relishes the natural beauty of Boulder, CO with his family.
The winter rain and snow have swept in and saturated our Southern Oregon landscape, providing much needed replenishment before the dry, summer months ahead. The land exudes a healthy green glow, the creeks are flowing vigorously, and the waterfalls tucked away on hiking trails are stunningly beautiful. As such, nature gently reminds us about the importance of hydration in the microcosm of our own bodies.
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!
