Abby Sprouts: eco-friendly family shopping - discount code and giveaway!

Congratulations to  Food According To Karen who said...
"There are so many things on the website it's hard to pick. However, the Classic Dump Truck By Sprig is adorable. My grandson is at the 'vrrmvrrm' stage and would love the dump truck."  You're getting an organic onesie!


One of these days, I will write a long, boring-to-most post about cloth diapers, slings, sleep sacks and all the other stuff that you get in to when you're trying to be an eco-friendly modern mama. Until then, my short summary on those items is:

1. Cloth diapering is awesome and better (functionally) than disposables. And trust me, I'm as squeamish as you are.
2. The sling saved my life for the first six months.
3. The sleep sack saved my life for the next three months (and counting).

And it's always nice to find a one-stop shop where you can pick up all of these great baby needs and more all under one (virtual) roof. Abby Sprouts is based in Victoria, BC and is your one-stop shop for green, personally-tested baby and mama goods. From their website:

After being frustrated with searching for safe products throughout my pregnancy and for my baby I decided the green family needed a place where the leg work was done for them. I select every product Abby Sprouts sells based on earth friendliness, play factor, enjoyment, quality, and functionality. If it's junk we don't sell it. I'm a true believer in buying less but buying good quality.

From toys to clothes to an excellent selection of cloth diapers (including the favourite around here, Fuzzi Bunz), Abby Sprouts strives to provide a great and easy shopping experience, all while adhering to their own green policies. Check out their website or follow them on Twitter. And once you're ready, use the code "EcoChick" for a 10% discount off everything on the site, including sale items. And shipping is free if you spend over $99. Nice!

And because Steph at Abby Sprouts is awesome, she gave us an adorable Love Peace Organic Cotton Onesie to give away (hooray!) So just scoot on over to Abby Sprouts and tell me what your favourite product is in the comments by Thursday, April 29. Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you (email, blogger profile, whatever works). Giveaway recipient will be selected at random and notified. Good luck and happy green!

Because I'm into the search now, I'd say that the cloth diapers are my fave with a preference for Fuzzi Bunz. nrevoy@yahoo.ca

There are so many things on the website it's hard to pick. However, the Classic Dump Truck By Sprig is adorable. My grandson is at the 'vrrmvrrm' stage and would love the dump truck.

The toys by Sprig are super cute and I'd never seen them before. I'd love a balance bike for my 3 year old though, and some wool felt food for our play kitchen. Nice stuff there!
