These buttons are made in Ecuador under fair and certified (ISO 9001: safe, equitable conditions) from Tagua.
Tagua (pronouced "Tah-gwa") is the dried seedpod of the Tagua palm tree (Phytelephas Macrocarpa) which grows in tropical rainforest.
The buttons come in natural or may be dyed as shown by the second photo (dyed with onion skins).
The buttons by "ecofabric" are beautifully presented in an button card printed in New Zealand using EA latex based toner - the most eco choice for recycling and only available from Organic Baby (we are the first stockist!)

Just picked up a new size Cyclops Organic Yoghurt at the supermarket (Pak n Save - Lower Hutt) and had to blog about it!
I always get excited about new organic food items because it is refreshing to have something new & instant to feed my little one. Yes, homebaking would be good but I never seem to find the time...
Cyclops have bought out this new 125g yoghurt which is a handy size for toddlers, school lunches. It is an expensive treat but of course the pottles are recyclable and refillable!
Also check out this cool finger-painting idea on the Cyclops web site!

Sophie has been on my "wish-list" since I opened the store almost a year ago! and finally this morning she arrived! Major excitement for both me and my six year old - despite the fact we have no babies in the house. She is just so cute...and I very proudly popped her in the shop window this morning for the Sophie -appreciating public :)
Sophie the Giraffe is one of the most talked about teething toys! Her success is legendary with millions and millions of units sold in Europe and worldwide since her creation in 1961.
Soft, light and easy to grasp, Sophie La Giraffe is perfect for little hands and makes a happy sound when squeezed. Babies especially love her bumpy head to sooth their teething gums.
In today’s fast paced world it is unusual to see a high production toy still made by hand. Proudly handmade in the French Alps with the finest rubber (phthalate-free) and food quality paints, Sophie will sure to become a favorite for your favorite baby.

Pictured: Eutopia Cafe, Kaiwaka
This Christmas we headed North for a big family get-together. Our road trip took us from Wellington to Auckland (via Taranaki) and onto Keri Keri in the fabulous Bay of Islands.
Huckleberry Farms in Auckland is AMAZING. Just about every organic/eco-friendly product you can possible ever need, the staff are friendly and they have a great deli/juice counter (!) I was particularly taken with their banana/berry smoothies :)
Onto the Bay of Islands which is clearly not far behind Nelson in terms of eco awareness. Keri Keri is home to Living Nature - where their office and spa retreat is based.
We visited Mahoe Cheeses which has a gift shop as well as cheese factory where you can buy their cheeses at great(!) factory prices.
Just north of Kaiwaka is Koanga Gardens which has everything you will need to grow your own organic, nutrient dense, heirloom fruit and vegetables, plus books and two lines of NZ made shoes.
... our journey has come to an end, which means we are back in town, our Petone store is open, and we have lots of exciting new products arriving in store ... see you soon!
