Back to School Sickies

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!

Surviving the Smoke

Did you know that EcoPiggy is based out of beautiful Ashland, Oregon? We have lots of rain in the winters here, but it is very hot and dry in the summers. Southern Oregon’s summer weather includes the potential for wildfires. Even if there isn’t a fire close by, we can still be affected by smoke drifting into and accumulating in our valley.  And right now, we are surrounded!

It’s really important to protect ourselves and our families to minimize health concerns due to inhalation of the fine particles in the smoky air. Running air conditioners and air purifiers with closed windows is recommended. Minimizing outdoor exposure as much as possible is advised,
