An open letter to all the mama’s out there, from all the mamas at Ecopiggy.
You are enough. On the days that are easy, on the days that are hard, on the days that are sunshine, and on the days that are absolute chaos; you are enough. It is easy to get caught up in all of the little details. Its easy to feel guilty about the littlest things; too much screen time, too little time spent outdoors, for snapping at them,… the list goes on and on. Do your best, Mama. Your best is better than what anyone else can do for your children. You. Are. Enough. So here’s a little giveaway we created to help you remember to take care of yourself, too.
Happy Mothers Day, from all of us, to all of you. <3
I don’t know about you, but when I’m super busy I can tend to not eat very well. This is not really a good thing for anyone, but especially so when you have little ones that you are tending to. I have worked in a few kitchens over the years and they always have something in common: lots of prepped ingredients ready to use for recipes. So, what if you spent a 1/2 hour, twice per week doing some meal prep to make your life a lot easier when it comes to making healthy meals?
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.
