Nothing will motivate you more than to start living a greener life quite like parenthood. Suddenly the planet is no longer yours, it belongs to the little people, the ones who need to swim and climb trees and run through the grass just like you did.
If it’s not good enough for you or your baby, then it’s not good enough for the environment either. EcoMom, an Eco-Friendly Baby Products company, was founded to address the connection between the health of our environment and the health of our children. EcoMom is committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, and rewarding.
EcoMom has an extensive selection of eco-conscious products and there is certainly something for everyone, even if you just want to try something new, like a counter top compost pail for your kitchen. EcoMom offers a variety of eco-friendly baby products including organic baby and toddler food, organic cotton clothing, wood toys, green cleaning products, all natural bath and body products for mom and baby, and so much more!!
Founded in August of 2008, EcoMom was created by moms, professionals, and those who fall into both categories. The goal was to create a resource where moms could shop for healthy, eco-friendly products that would promote wellbeing in their children. Based out of Los Angeles, California, EcoMom was founded by Balaji Gopinath and Jody Sherman. Today, the EcoMom team has expanded to include many others along with a growing community and large database of green products for the family.
Parents that prefer to purchase environmentally friendly, health conscious products can appreciate EcoMom. The site is a large collection of items that fall into these categories, including edible and non-edible merchandise. Many other online retailers offer some of the same products; however EcoMom brings them all together into one convenient shopping location.
EcoMom sent me a fabulous LOVE Reusable Bags Chill Set in Cosmic Stripes pattern and I totally love it!! I was wishing I had this wonderful insulated set with me while in Jamaica a few weeks ago, it sure would have come in handy!! They have a matching set of 3 reusable shopping totes that tuck neatly into a 4th insulated cooler bag. The LOVE Reusable Bags Chill Set is great because you not only have your reusable totes but also a cooler for meats, and frozen foods plus hot foods too, while you get all your errands run without spoilage of food. The totes are machine washable and sturdy and hold up to 60lbs. These totes stand alone for easy loading and unloading and are equipped with 3 mesh pockets for storage and a shoulder strap for comfort!!

Novica is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. Novica works with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.
Novica, in association with National Geographic, sells products — home decor, jewelry, apparel, gifts and more — made by artisans from Asia, Africa and Latin America. Artists post their work on the Novica site for free; Novica allows them to set their own prices. The company makes money when a piece sells, and goods ship directly from the country of origin.
The online company gives you the opportunity to learn about the artists lives, explore fascinating cultures, and browse more than 30,000 unique gifts including green gifts, Gifts for her, apparel, home decor, beautiful handmade jewelry, Turquoise Jewelry, Silver Necklaces, Unique Gifts, carved wood furniture, gifts for mom, and soooooooooo much more!
Novica was designed specifically to give artisan’s a chance to sell their designs. This is such a great site. I was thoroughly impressed with the designs that they offer! They offer anything from silver jewelry to home decor that are handmade. They also offer gorgeous necklaces! These artisans are truly gifted!
Each of the artists have a bio that you can view to get an inside glance at the person from whom you are purchasing from.
“We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.
At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.
We want you to know about who you’re buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.”
Everything that Novica.com sells is completely gorgeous and made of high quality.
I was sent two really gorgeous unique hangbags to review, and absolutely love them both!
Their delivery time as well as their customer service skills are also beyond outstanding!!
“Mighty and regal, elephants celebrate Thailand’s artistic heritage in a design by Jiap Rojjana. The brocade adorns a cotton shoulder bag trimmed with rain tree wood and a coconut shell button. The lined interior features a practical pocket.”
“Embroidered in precise patterns, hill tribe motifs form colorful stars. Anchalika Chamnan works with locally grown or prepared materials to craft this chic shoulder bag. The cotton motifs are applied to hemp, while longan wood hoops attach the straps.”
I give this company a huge thumbs up, and recommend them to everyone!!
I want to thank Novica.com for letting me be part of their review!!
