*CLOSED* Review and Giveaway: EcoBabyBuys.com



One of the latest trends in shopping is "one deal a day" sales. Often this means you can get great items at half the regular retail price or more! I love deals so I'm naturally drawn to these sales, yet when I was looking for green and eco-friendly products this way, I had no luck. Then I discovered EcoBabyBuys.com!

EcoBabyBuys.com offers one deal a day on eco-friendly items for babies and children for at least 40% off regular retail prices. Deals "go green" at 9 am EST and you have to be quick because they are on a first come, first serve basis. 
  
The founders of EcoBabyBuys have set out on a mission to discover manufacturers that offer non-toxic, eco-friendly and fairly traded products for babies and children. 

Before buying a product I research it and see whether it's truly green or not. Yet, if I'm buying from EcoBabyBuys.com, they save me the time and energy by ensuring every product they sell meets a strict criteria:
·    the use of non-toxic materials and dyes;
·    the use of organic and/or recycled textiles and materials;
·    the use of eco-friendly packaging;
·    and a commitment and adherence to the standards of fair-trade.

I love how EcoBabyBuys is passionate about providing the best and safest possible products on the market to their customers! The founders believe it is possible to raise one’s children without the fear of toxic products. To help parents out even more, they are working on a blog (also found at www.ecobabybuys.com) where they will write about topics relating to living an eco-friendly lifestyle, and they will welcome a dialogue with their customers and the larger web-community.

Are you ready for an extra bonus? EcoBabyBuys.com encourages you to share the deals with your friends by offering you a little reward! When you tell your friends about EcoBabyBuys.com using the easy share form on the website and your friend makes their first purchase, you will receive a $10 e-gift certificate to spend on future EcoBabyBuys purchases. 

I was impressed with the mission of EcoBabyBuys, the products they offer, and the prices, so I contacted them about partnering with my blog. EcoBabyBuys generously sent me a few products to review and offered an awesome giveaway prize for my blog birthday celebration! 


For review, I received a set of organic cotton baby socks from Kee-Ka and a lunch bag from Mimi the Sardine, shown above.

I love the Kee-Ka socks because they are 100% organic cotton, and this also means they are very soft! I have difficulty keeping socks on my baby's feet because he either squirms out of them or pulls the socks off. However, he doesn't mind having the Kee-Ka socks on and they don't slip off easily! The band at the top of the sock is thicker than the rest of the material which helps keep them on your little one's feet. 


I tested the lunch bag out on a picnic and it was the perfect size for my lunch! I love how the fabric is water resistant and PVC-free coated cotton that is easy to clean off. Plus the print is fun and it will be perfect to send with my son when he starts preschool. 



Buy It: EcoBabyBuys.com offers one deal a day, the products I reviewed will most likely be available again soon, when you sign up for the daily deal alerts by email you will find out first what's for sale on EcoBabyBuys!


Win It: One reader will win a Mimi the Sardine Shopper (retail value $46) provided by EcoBabyBuys.com.
