These are perfect for Christmas parties as cocktail napkins. Honest seller refunded excess postage, which was a lovely surprise. Thanks!

About

quality environmental alternatives for the whole family -- sewn in sunshine!

ecomum started as because organic cotton products, and cloth diapers were not readily available when our family was growing. Later our product line expanded as we all expanded, and we began making cloth midwifery slings at the request of our local midwifery clinic. Since then, we've begun selling them all around the world -- a true honor to be creating something that is one of the first thing to touch so many newborn babies! AND! we get to satisfy the urge to buy pretty fabric!

ecomum is a homebased business located in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. Our products are chosen for the following reasons as much as possible

--ecologically responsible practices from field, to production, to your home
--reuse-ability -- good quality stuff to last a long while!
--ethical business practices
--hard to find stuff that's good for your family (and your soul)
-- all packaging and labels are post-consumer recycled or sewing off-cuts for a softer footprint!

We've got 2 kids, and an assorted menagerie of rescued animals that keep life hopping, but then, what else is life here for?!

If you have any questions, please let us know; we also welcome inquiries about custom made hemp prefold diapers, or other eco-friendly creations.

Thanks for stopping in, and having a look at our shop, which is, as all things, a work in progress.

All purchases ship in recycled / eco-friendly packaging as much as possible.

If you're interested in cloth diapers, hemp clothing, and other eco-affordables, please visit us at our other site: www.ecomum.com, or become a fan on facebook!

***********
It's important for us to pay back a little of the blessings that we have in our lives. 1$ from every sling sold is being donated to a women's shelter here in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada or to midwifery projects with Medicins Sans Frontiers! Great for midwife thank you gifts!

Over the past few years, that has been more than $1000!!!

welcome to ecomum!
ecomum is a home-run business, specializing in quality reusable products, and hard to find organics.

Begun in 2001, ecomum was inspired by then 6 month old son Skye, and the frustrating experience of trying to find good cloth diapers and advice on how to use them, as well as ethically manufactured or organic clothing. Since then, ecomum has expanded its inventory to include organic clothing for adults and kids, as well as hemp and other alternative fabrics Additionally, ecomum's home-grown product line includes hemp prefold diapers, housewares, totes, and baby-weigh slings which are used by midwives across Ontario.

Please stay tuned as we add more of our "ecomum@home" made products to our etsy shop!
