Back to School with EcoMom - Review and Giveaway

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

This contest is now closed.


In this day in age, moms and dads seem to be more concerned than ever before about providing their children with the healthiest food, the safest toys and the most organic and natural alternatives when it comes to clothing, health, bath and body and more. This is probably why an increasing number of parents are turning to Eco-friendly Baby Products - EcoMom.

Under the Nile Organic Training Pants

Back in May, I wrote a review on organic baby food and lunchbox snacks from EcoMom. They were a real hit with my kids and would make for a healthy and tasty addition to my daughter's lunch as she heads back to school in September. My son will be heading back to daycare and I am hoping to have him potty trained before then. Luckily, EcoMom sent me a pair of Under the Nile training pants made of 100% organic Egyptian cotton in natural.


One of the first things I noticed immediately after removing the training pants from the packaging was how incredibly and heavenly soft they felt to the touch. It really has such a luxurious feel to it, it makes me want to buy organic cotton clothing for myself. And while my son is still potty training, it makes me feel better knowing that my son's gentle skin is free from contact with harmful chemicals that may be found in some clothing bleached with chlorine. He seems very comfortable in his new pair. I would definitely recommend this to any mom or dad who may be looking to potty train using an eco-friendly and organic alternative.

Now, with Back to School around the corner, you can easily find eco-friendly school supplies that your children, and the environment, will love. EcoMom has also added these new Eco-Coloured Pencils by Eco-Kids. They are made from recycled newspaper, wax and natural mineral pigments. The glue is even derived from corn and potatoes. How's that for natural, sustainable and reusable?

You can order direct from EcoMom.com. Also, they now offer free shipping on orders over $50. If you enroll in their new program called EcoPass, you can get 15% off every order and you don't need to worry about the $50 minimum requirement to enjoy free shipping. The EcoPass is a $99 annual membership and pays for itself in as few as 4 orders, costing only $18.24 per month.
One Toronto Teacher Mom reader will win a $15 Gift Certificate for EcoMom.com.

  1. We homeschool and a HUGE part of our curriculum is social studies. I love to learn about other cultures, places, and civilizations. If I won I would order this for my kids to share:Melissa & Doug Children of the World Floor Puzzle they would have such a great time with it as as they played they would ask questions and together we would learn the answers as we always do.

  44. Our special DD is entering JK this fall and we're potty training like heck before school starts. We're using scratchy awful pull-ups right now. Blech. I would love to try the Under the Nile Training Pants (and when I say "I", I mean for DD...not me...ahem). lisa@yummymummyclub.ca
