About

Inspire

I grew up in a small, beautiful town called Fenelon Falls Ontario. I remember always being outside; swimming at the lake in the summer, jumping in piles of leaves in the fall, making snow angels in the winter, and tapping the trees for maple syrup in the spring.

I was always surrounded by my lovely artistic family ; My father and brother - canoe builders, and my mother and sister - piano players. Creativity runs in my blood.

As much as I loved the country life, as I grew older I wanted to experience the city, which brought me to London Ontario where I graduated Fashion Design from Fanshawe College.

As much as the country and city are completely different, there is one thing that makes them the same. Mother Nature. I still get chances to enjoy the outdoors while living in the City. And I am passionate about the beauty of it all.

That is what inspired me to create Planet Playground. I wanted to create a line of clothing that respects Mother Nature. So instead of buying new fabric, I recycle old fabric. My mission is to provide unique clothing to our society without sacrificing the world in which we live. To teach families that recycling is more than just the 'blue bin' - that it can be a fun, and creative thing. I want people to get thinking about the impact they make on our beautiful world that is often taken for granted.

    I am a fashion design graduate who finds herself drawn to children's wear because I swear I will never let that 'kid' inside me vanish. I am most inspired by Mother Nature. I have an abundance of energy. I love my life.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 21, 2012
Thanks for visiting my shop! I created Planet Playground to inspire families to contribute to the health of our environment.

Here you are provided with garments made from vintage/ recycled / repurposed fabrics, and occasionally organic fabrics for your little ones.

DID YOU KNOW??!!

By using vintage fabrics, otherwise known as 'upcycling' we have eliminated waste that ends up in our landfills. These fabrics have been made into something fabulous and new.

Organic Cotton is grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides. (Traditionally grown cotton accounts for 25% of the worlds pesticides.)

Every little bit helps in our ventures to keep Mother Nature happy!!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
PayPal
All major credit cards and e-checks are accepted through PayPal.

E-checks generally take about 4 business days to clear. Once payment has cleared, items will be shipped.

You can pay with a credit card through PayPal without actually having a PayPal account. It is free, simple to use, and a secured website.

If you decide to use PayPal, your etsy receipt will provide a link to PayPal's website. This will direct you to the seller's Paypal account. Enter your credit card number and your billing information in the area provided on PayPal. This is how you pay with your credit card without signing up for a PayPal account.
If you are still confused, here is an excellent link that explains how to pay with a credit card on PayPal.

Money orders
I accept money orders from United States and Canada ONLY.
Please make sure Money Order is cashable in Canada.
I will ship your items as soon as I receive your money order and it has cleared.
Shipping
Items will be shipped within 1 to 5 business days after payment has been received.(Only due to the fact that I also work a full time job). If you need your item sooner, please contact me and let me know. Please allow an extra 1 to 2 weeks on top of shipping for custom orders.

Shipping prices do not include insurance or confirmation. Please let me know before paying if this is an option you would like to add on.

I use the shipping address that is provided with your etsy receipt. Please make sure this address is correct.

ATTN U.S BUYERS: Items are being shipped from Canada through Canada Post. Pending on your location, shipping time can take anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks. (The average time is about 2 weeks)

IN A HURRY??!! I am able to upgrade the service. Let me know which State you live in and I will send you upgrading options.

ATTN CANADIAN BUYERS: Shipping rates are higher in Canada than the U.S. The reason is because Canada Post charges by postal code , which makes the rates higher. United States is a flat rate. Shipping within Canada can take anywhere from 1 business day to 5 business days.
If you convo me with your postal code, I will give you an exact price on how much it will cost to ship to where you live.
Upgrading is also available. If you need it in a certain time frame, let me know your postal code and I will supply you with the upgrading options.

ATTN INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING!
For each listing, I include international shipping (Mexico and Every Where Else). Some countries, however, prohibit or restrict the importation of some product, so please check your customs regulations or contact me before buying so I can check the regulations for you.
You can see which items are restricted or prohibited in your country at http://pe.usps.com/text/Imm/immctry.htm

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions :)

ATTN ALL BUYERS: You,the buyer are responsible for any customs duties, VATs, or import taxes.

LOST MAIL: Mail is not considered 'Lost Mail' until 10 weeks. If you have not received your package within 10 weeks, please contact me and we will try to resolve the problem.

I love to use eco-friendly packaging materials. Items are packed in a biodegradable shopping bag. This durable bag will give you a at least a couple of more uses after receiving your product. If the garments are too big to be packed in this bag, they are wrapped with recyclable tissue paper. I take pride in the appearance of my packaging! These packages are then put into paper envelops (that are recyclable). I do not believe in using bubble wrap because they are not biodegradable.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales final on custom orders (Ie Mommy and me outfits, or something I have made specially for you) and all sales are also final on SALE items.

Exchanges / refunds will happen on a case to case basis which will be issued when I have received the item back and product is in the same condition as it was when it was shipped.(Buyer to pay return shipping). The item must be dropped off at your post office within 1 week from the refund request.

If you are not happy with your product please let me know to see if we can resolve the issue. Exchanges / refunds will be issued within 2 days after I have received the product back.
If you are not happy with your item, please inform me first before leaving me neutral or negative feedback. You, the customer are my number one priority and I would be happy to resolve any issues that may arise.

Please be sure to read the entire listing before purchasing to find out more about sizing and fabric quality. This is my lively hood and it is not fair for me to have to refund you due to the fact you have not read the listing properly. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. I will be of assistance to you as soon as I can.

RE: Vintage fabrics
As these fabrics chosen are considered vintage, I have done my very best to use the best parts of the fabrics. Occasionally, there may be a little flaw in the fabric, but nothing you wouldn't expect out of vintage fabrics :)
I always do my best to describe any 'flaws' in the items description.
All fabric is cleaned and pre-treated before use.
Additional policies and FAQs
Product is generally 'hand wash cold or machine wash gentle, hang or lay flat to dry'.
Care instructions are sent with every package

If you have purchased something with ribbons and for some reason they fall out, simply attach a safety pin the the end of the ribbon, and feed it through the casing.

If you are interested in custom orders, wholesale and/or consignment, feel free to email me at planet_playground [!at] hotmail.com.
All comments and questions are welcome. I will do the best I can to suit your needs. Please keep in mind though, that since most items are made from vintage fabrics, they are generally one of a kind. I will do my best to show you similar fabrics.

** Items come from a pet friendly home.***
