Piperoos on American Made Baby Brands April 25, 2017 09:35

Amy from American Made Baby Brands recently chatted with Sarah for a series she's doing on Mompreneurs. Her review of Piperoos can be found here but we wanted to share with you our favorite part. 

Sarah-American-Made-Baby-Brands-Piperoos

"Sarah set out to create all-purpose pads similar to cloth diapers and the homemade flannel pads she received as a gift before Piper was born. Her “environmental compass” was to make Piperoos with all organic cotton, recycled packaging, low impact dyes — and locally made to cut down on transportation impact. She even pays to offset the carbon footprint of shipping."

Why we love Earth Baby March 23, 2017 02:00

Finding Earth Baby was such a victory for Piperoos! This charming, earth friendly boutique on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City is like a treasure chest full of green baby treats. 

Earth Baby Boutique

This store has so many adorable things that you have to allow yourself some time to really look and absorb what's in here. Also, Renee and her team have done such a great job on the decor that on one of my initial visits I tried to buy one of her decorations.

Best of all though, is that this store is filled with green products made by local moms! They source locally and are a great voice in the community encouraging people to invest in local businesses. They also focus on organic products and do a wonderful job educating people about green and eco-friendly options for your baby and home.

Speaking of local... it's always a treat when the team shares which local celebrity has recently stopped by. 

 


3 Things We Love About Patagonia February 23, 2017 09:00

3 Things We Love About Patagonia - Piperoos

Patagonia is an AMAZING store! Recently, on one of my favourite  podcasts (How I Built This), I learned some new and inspiring stuff about this truly eco-friendly company. Right on their website they declare themselves as environmental activists - I love that!

In the name of respecting our new series of "Three Things Thursdays", I had to chose just 3 things I love about Patagonia, but it was hard... 

Here they are: 

  1. Patagonia has been encouraging people to buy less stuff and find ways to reuse and restore their equipment! How cool is that!? 
  2. In 2016, they pledged 10$ million from their Black Friday Sales to grassroots environmental groups.   
  3. For the past 20 years, they've been using organic cotton and been pesticide-free!  

Like I said, those are only a few reasons we love this company. If you are interested in learning more, check out this short video (click on image below) to see everything that they are doing to be a green (and more and more fair trade) company.

Piperoos strives to be green in every way possible and it is so inspiring to see big companies like Patagonia making the environment a priority as well.

Versatile, Gorgeous, and Great for the Environment ! October 21, 2016 06:09

Brittany was yet another lucky mama who got the chance to review our truly beautiful, very versatile, and genuinely eco friendly baby changing pads.

Her review raves about how Piperoos has made her life easier, especially when she is on the move with her little Madison.  The versatile nature of our organic cotton baby change pads make them a valuable addition to the changing bag. To boot, babies love the soft feel of the organic cotton used for the pads, making changing diapers a little easier.

"Madison loved her Piperoos and I even caught her rubbing the cloth against her face feeling how soft it is."

And, let's not forget that the packaging and the pads are gorgeous. Brittany is certainly not the first to mention that Piperoos are super useful, environment friendly, and  super classy. She says "I just love using something that has such a great purpose, is helpful and is stylish."

 

 


Organic Cotton Baby Change Pads Made to Last October 13, 2016 09:15

A few days ago Tavia King, mother of  3 and blogger at Tiny Drops of Honey published her review of our baby change pads.

"I feel that these are quality made and will last with normal daily use." - Tavia

Tavia is a big user of cloth diapers and natural synthetics. She prioritizes products that "are healthy for (her)family and for the environment" and was consequently very pleased to get a chance to review our eco friendly, organic cotton baby changing pads. She listed a number of things she loves about our product and one was the choice of labelling which she described as simple, attractive and out of the way so as not to irritate little ones.

Tavia also underlined the quality of the change pads as well as how classy they look in our adorable packaging. On top of being gorgeous, Piperoos packaging is as green as the product. The boxes are printed with soy-based ink on recycled cardboard, and done locally.

"The packaging is a lovely eco-friendly thin cardboard and looks ultra classy.  It would be a beautiful new baby gift!" - Tavia

Read the complete review here - she talks about the products durability, how Piperoos are easy to use and wash, as well as how much she loves the foxes pattern. And... we must admit, so do we!
