Big Kids Night Nappies

This week we had an enquiry... where do you buy cloth "pull-up" type nappies for older children?

Thought we should share....

Check out Mum and Bubs (who stock Happy Heiny's™) or contact Natural Parenting NZ (ask about their Big Kids Night Pull-ups).

Recyclable water bottles

I just checked out the Good Water web site.... did you realise that the PET water bottles that you put in your recycled bin (with good intentions) are recycled in China! All those water bottles being transported to China are just adding to the global warming problem!

We encourage the use of reusable water bottles (we use Kleen Kanteen - now known as Eco Tankas).

However, when you are out & about and need them - water bottles made from plant-based renewable resources are now available in NZ from Good Water.

Available at organic stores, supermarkets and petrol stations nationwide at $2.80 per bottle.

In the United States, BIOTA water bottles are sold at select natural foods and gourmet supermarkets.

Designer wipes boxes

Made by Angie who says - "How many times do you pull out your baby wipes during the day to change a diaper, wipe a messy face or clean up a spill? Tons, so why not do it in style?"

My little organic tot is now 4 and a half but I still carry eco wipes in my handbag for those little emergencies, like a quick hand wipe before lunch (I try and avoid the handwash in most public toilets!) These would be just fab to carry round.

Concern over use & disposal of energy-saving bulbs

Check out this news items on Yahoo News which explains concerns over the use and disposal of energy-saving bulbs.

Also, in the news today, the Australian Govt wants to ban plastic bags by the end of the year. That's a great initiative by Australia but why are we lagging so far behind in New Zealand?
